Tony Zych – RHP

The Mariners landed the 25-year-old right-handed reliever this past offseason, and he has been a very pleasant surprise. Tony Zych began the season in Jackson, and dominated the opposition. Zych went 0-0 with a 2.16 ERA and 5 saves across 15 appearances. He struck out 18 and walked 0 through 18.2 innings.

Zych’s strong start in Jackson earned him a promotion to Tacoma. Since joining the Rainiers, Zych is 1-2 with a 3.41 ERA and 4 saves over the course of 25 appearances. He fanned 37 and walked 9 during 31.2 innings pitched.

The Mariners named Tony Zych one of their September call-ups earlier today. I am excited to see what this young man is capable of over the final month of the season. Look for Zych to compete for a bullpen spot in 2016 if he can pitch well in the AFL.
