Mike Zunino, RHH, 28
The most recent addition to the 2019 Tampa Bay Rays, Mike Zunino will finally give the Rays the stability they have longed for behind the plate. While his defensive reputation precedes him, his offensive reputation tends to be less forgiving.
A streaky hitter with pop, who, if he returns to his 2017 form, could prove huge dividends for the Tampa Bay Rays. Look for Zunino to hit around .230 with 20 bombs while providing stellar defense behind the plate.
Michael Perez, LHH, 26
Michael Perez was a pleasant surprise for the Rays in 2018 before going down with an injury. The lefty hit .284 over 24 games for the Rays while provided stellar defense. I would look for Perez to beat Cuiffo out for the backup role in 2019.
