The Mariners’ are flush with stars, but I believe there will be a few players who will breakthrough in 2015.

Here at SoDo Mojo we ran an article earlier in the week detailing the sky-high expectations for the Mariners in 2015. Nearly every baseball “expert” projects the M’s to reach the postseason this season, and with good reason. Seattle is one of the most talented clubs in baseball, with quality starters littered throughout the lineup and rotation.

Felix Hernandez, Robinson Cano, Fernando Rodney, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager were all present at the 2014 All Star game in Minnesota. I expect all four of those players to be named All Stars again this season. However, in order for the M’s to be a truly special team they will need some key contributions from some of the lesser-known players on the roster.

We will begin the list of unexpected All Stars with the M’s backstop, Mike Zunino, who put together a fabulous spring in Arizona.
