Power Hitting Catchers

After averaging 36 HR’s and 39 doubles in two short seasons in the minor leagues the Seattle Mariners have inserted Mike Zunino into their starting lineup.

Take a look at this long bomb he hit last night.

Zunino reminds me of former slugging catchers Mike Stanley and Mickey Tettleton.  At 23 years old and with power like this I would think they are set at receiver for at least the next five years.
