The Seattle Mariners farm system is as deep because it’s ever been. There’s big-league expertise past the membership’s High 20. Beneath is prospects Nos. 11-20.
Essential notice: There’s a fragile stability between upside, danger, and ETA, however the distinction between No. 10 and No. 5 or No. 6 isn’t as important as it could appear in some instances.
10. Isaiah Campbell, RHP
Campbell has but to throw a aggressive pitch in professional ball however has measurement (6-4/230) and projectable command that ought to permit his four-pitch combine to work as a starter with an opportunity to maneuver rapidly.
It would make sense for the right-hander to deal with one in all his breaking balls in 2021, and the slider is additional alongside than his sluggish, considerably crazy curveball which could be higher used as an early-count eye-level changer than an out pitch.
He creates airplane by staying on high of a excessive three-quarters slot and regardless of some barking about his lengthy arm path throws strikes. There’s some tail to his fastball and he does a superb job sustaining arm pace all through his arsenal. Campbell is adept at attacking all the zone.
The cub’s comp-round decide from two years again may begin 2021 at both Class-A affiliate however has an opportunity to maneuver up a few times this season. As a starter he carries mid-rotation upside.
|60+ (92-96)||50+ (80-83)||45 (71-75)||50+ (81-84)||50|
9. Brandon Williamson, LHP
Williamson has been as much as 97 mph together with his fastball and carries a greater set of secondary pitches than does Campbell. If he had extra expertise and was a step or two nearer to the majors I possible would have him ranked 2-3 spots increased.
He’s athletic and makes use of his 6-foot-6 body to pitch downhill together with his fastball, curveball and slider, all of which undertaking as big-league pitches.
The curveball is above-average and has an opportunity to be the perfect within the group. His changeup wants numerous work however has flashed close to common and will no less than be helpful in time.
Williamson’s arm slot is round three-quarters, maybe a bit decrease, serving to him create angles that show tough for each lefties and righties when he stays closed and explodes by means of launch level. His fastball has life up within the zone and he makes use of it nicely on each edges to right-handed batters.
Williamson has an opportunity to be an excellent No. 3, with good fastball command and changeup high quality his largest hurdles. He ought to begin 2021 in Class-A Everett with a shot to maneuver up because the yr progresses, and will simply pace up his ETA.
|65 (93-97)||50 (84-87)||55+ (78-82)||55 (83-86)||45+|
8. Cal Raleigh, C
Raleigh is rarely going to be mistaken for Yadier Molina or Pudge Rodriguez defensively, however he’s answered numerous questions with playable solutions, and affords the sorts of intangibles golf equipment need from catchers.
Raleigh is a tricky chief, has improved his receiving and framing, and his above-average arm energy performs up with good accuracy and constant mechanics. He’s labored laborious to take care of his conditioning so as keep behind the dish.
His calling card, nevertheless, is energy, exhibiting official 60-grade pop from the left facet and fringe-average, doubles energy from the best. He has common bat pace, however the swing is a bit lengthy, so he’s prone to swing and miss fairly a bit, with house runs because the payoff.
His left-handed swing can be his higher facet by way of contact and hitting for common, although there hasn’t been any buzz about giving up switch-hitting, and it could be lower than superb to do it now when he’s so near the majors.
Raleigh initiatives as a median catcher led by energy hitting, but when the hit device catches up a bit with expertise he may see some DH time when he’s not catching, maybe extending his profession that in any other case might be shortened by an absence of athleticism.
7. Taylor Trammell, OF
His plus to plus-plus pace jumps out and he’s at all times proven an above-average capacity to get the barrel to the ball. The bat pace suggests uncooked energy into the mid-teens or higher, however the makes an attempt to unlock it seem to have damage his capacity to hit for common in 2019.
There’s nonetheless an excessive amount of swing-and-miss in his recreation contemplating the extra possible energy manufacturing, which is the most important hurdle to his possibilities to hit big-league pitching. However he’s at all times drawn walks and offered worth within the area and on the bases.
Trammell’s swing continues to be a work-in-progress and in consequence I don’t have as a lot confidence as some relating to his ETA. I do, nevertheless, purchase his defensive worth greater than most, even when his below-average arm retains him in left area.
There’s some Starling Marte in Trammell’s upside, and a few Jacque Jones within the median projection. It’s tough to think about he’s not a major-league participant, contemplating the pace and protection. The precise function is but to be decided.
He’ll begin 2021 in Triple-A Tacoma, in all probability taking part in each heart and left, and certain will get no less than a cup of java with the massive membership later within the season.
6. George Kirby, RHP
Kirby’s greatest attributes lend tons of confidence in his ETA and flooring, led by plus-plus management, plus command and athleticism that helps him repeat his supply very nicely.
The best-hander will cruise 91-94 mph however there’s extra velocity to come back primarily based on the occasional 95 in faculty and his work on the alternate coaching website that produced numerous 95-99 within the fall.
The four-seamer has life and run, and his slider, an above-average, 84-87 mph breaker, is his greatest likelihood to be a real swing-and-miss providing.
His changeup has flashed plus and I undertaking it to land there in time, and he makes use of a 79-82 curveball successfully versus left-handed hitters, burying it under the zone or getting referred to as strikes. It’s not as constant or sharp because the slider, however ought to stay an early-count weapon.
Kirby initiatives as a No. 3 starter for me, and the ground isn’t a lot of a drop. I feel there’s an honest likelihood he’s higher than Logan Gilbert or Emerson Hancock, maybe thrusting Kirby into No. 2 standing, although I fall fairly shy of seeing a No. 1 starter or true ace. I feel he’s finally greater than a command-and-feel right-hander who wins with effectivity.
