Zunino is one of the better sources of power at the catcher position, but with a .207 lifetime average and enormous 34.2 percent career strikeout rate, he is a major liability in the batting average department. As a result, he's finished as a top-14 fantasy catcher just once -- in 2017, when he rode a completely unsustainable .355 BABIP to a .251 batting average. He's simply too big of a batting average drain to be an appealing starting option in 12-team leagues.

Mike Zunino reportedly being traded to Rays

The Rays and Mariners are finalizing a deal that would send Mike Zunino and Guillermo Heredia to Tampa Bay in exchange for Mallex Smith.

Fantasy Impact

The deal is not official yet, but all signs point to it going through at some point on Thursday. Zunino has substantial power, having hit 45 home runs over the past two seasons, but his batting average is prohibitively low, even for a catcher. The change in ballpark should mean little, as both his former and new stadium favor pitchers.
