Mariners All-Access – Down on the Farm


This week, Mariners All Access from ROOT Sports takes a road trip to Tacoma to focus on the Rainiers.

Jen Mueller takes a look at team chemistry and how important it is to winning.

Top prospect Nick Franklin has a reputation for being the clubhouse clown. Jen spends a little time getting to know him and gaining insight into his personality. Franklin also offers some observations about his infield mates, who all sport beards.

Catcher Mike Zunino, the Mariners 1st Round draft pick, made an impression during Spring Training, and he got off to a hot offensive start in April. In addition, he’s been making strides handling the pitching staff. Jen talk to him about how he’s making the adjustment from college ball to the pros, and interviews the pitchers about working with Zunino.

And Jen turns the tables by asking the Rainiers what they want to know about the Big Leagues. See how much they know about the Safeco Field and the Mariners.

Tune into ROOT Sports at noon on Sunday, before the Mariners take on the Oakland A’s, for the debut of this edition of Mariners All Access. It will be replayed at 11 am Friday.
