Mariners Weekly Rundown: Who’s Hot and Who’s Not
You can’t Psyche Out Zych
Tony Zych has been showing glimpses early this season of why he is such a highly thought of young hurler. The 25-year-old right-hander has allowed 1 run on 3 hits across his first two appearances. Zych has tallied 6 strikeouts and walked 1 through 4 innings pitched. He has done a nice job limiting mistakes, as the opposition is hitting just .225 off him so far this year.
The Mariners acquired Zych from the Chicago Cubs last season for just $1. He is providing excellent return on investment, and he has the potential to one day serve as the M’s closer. He should see an expanded role as we get closer to the summer months. It will be interesting to see how he develops moving forward.
