AFL Report: Mariners, plus another Star of the Day
Today’s featured AFL Team Report is on the Seattle Mariners and focuses on 2012 first-round pick Mike Zunino. And here’s the video report:
A quick Star of the Day goes to…another pitcher:
Bobby Cassevah of the Angels went four scoreless on Thursday. The right-hander gave up just one hit, walked none and struck out three. In two AFL starts, he’s now gone seven shutout innings allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out four. Cassevah has actually spent quite a bit of time in the big leagues, pitching out of the Angels bullpen in 2010, 2011 and a bit this past season. A groundball machine, he’s been pitching in relief for most of his professional career. He didn’t have a good year in 2012, but it’s not often to see a guy with almost 65 Major League innings under his belt in the Fall League.
