We’re about to play ball here in Peoria. Here’s the posted lineup for the first outing against the Padres which starts at noon Pacific Time:
After offseason arthroscopic surgeries to remove bone spurs, second baseman Dustin Ackley and shortstop Brendan Ryan will be held out of the first three spring training games.
Shortly after catcher Mike Zunino was drafted third overall last year, he showed up at Safeco Field with his dad.
The Mariners were showing the new prospect known for his defense the cavernous park he hoped to play in one day. Zunino was able to get into the batter’s box that afternoon and take batting practice. His first few swings were mediocre. Then, he started launching balls over the wall. Over and over.
