Mariners C Mike Zunino placed on disabled list

So much has been going well of late for the Mariners, who thanks in part to a midseason infusion of youth, have won nine of their last 10 and are 15-6 in July, but the team announced to bad news Friday.

Catcher Mike Zunino, who injured his hand Thursday on a second-inning RBI single, has a fractured hamate bone and has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. Zunino will have surgery next week and is expected to miss approximately six weeks.

A corresponding move has not yet been made, but expect to see the Mariners call up a catcher with Henry Blanco currently the only catcher on the roster.

Since being called up from Tacoma on June 12, Zunino hit .242 with 4 doubles, 2 home runs and 10 RBI in 29 games. He’s been heating up of late, hitting .324 in his last 11 games with 2 doubles, one home run, 6 RBI and 7 walks.
