Mariners Weekly Rundown: Who’s Hot and Who’s Not
There is no “I” in team, but there is one in Iannetta
Chris Iannetta was an under appreciated signing this offseason for Seattle, and the veteran backstop has been remarkably productive at the plate in his brief M’s career. He leads the Mariners with a .364 batting average, and he has slugged 1 home run while driving in 4 runs in 5 games. Iannetta boasts a .533 on base percentage and a .636 slugging percentage in 11 at bats.
Next: Don’t you dare give up on the Mariners
The 33-year-old is known for consistently getting on base, and that skill should be very useful to the Mariners in 2016. Iannetta is fresh off his worst season as a pro, but it’s encouraging to see him putting some good swings on the ball. It’s unlikely he can maintain his high batting average, but hopefully he continues to be a productive member of the Mariners lineup.
