Mariners catcher Jesus Sucre suffered a broken fibula while playing in the Venezuelan winter league and the team announced today that he’s expected to miss six months following surgery.

Sucre played 57 games for the Mariners last season, but he struggled and Seattle added catchers Chris Iannetta and Steve Clevenger this offseason in addition to still having former top prospect Mike Zunino.

Once healthy Sucre figures to play at Triple-A.
