Seattle Mariners catcher Mike Zunino will be under scrutiny this season. His .199 batting average in 2014 was an embarrassment to an otherwise solid season.
Zunino hit 22 homers and drove in 60 runs in 131 games in 2014. He also led the American League in HBP with 17. Still, if he is going to take that next step forward in his 2nd full season as the Mariners backstop, he’ll need to get that average up – at least to .230.
If he does, he may crack the Top-10 Catchers Right Now list on MLB Network in 2016.
