The Seattle Mariners are pleased with the adjustments C Mike Zunino has made at the plate with his hands, which he has moved back at the start of his swing. He has four hits in his first seven at-bats this spring. "It's just having your hands and body in a completely loaded position," Zunino said. "I wasn't quite getting all the way back there when I first got in camp and even last year. So I think just being able to get my hands all the way back is allowing me to free up my swing a little bit and it gives me more time to recognize pitches."
