Mariners Weekly Rundown: Who’s Hot & Who’s Not
Dae-ho means “Walk-off” in Korean
The Mariners signed Dae-ho Lee this offseason after he spent 15 seasons in Asia to platoon with Adam Lind at first base, and Lee is quickly becoming a fan favorite in Seattle. He went 3 for 9 this week with 1 home run and 2 RBI in 5 games. The rotund slugger’s walk-off homer was arguably the biggest hit of the season for the M’s, and hopefully will viewed as the turning point come October.
Lee has done a decent job through his first two weeks in the Major Leagues, slashing .250/.294/.625 in 9 games. He has homered twice and driven in 3 runs. Lee has shown plenty of power, but hopefully he will show more patience as the season progresses. He has yet to work a walk across 16 at bats in 2016.
