The Seattle Mariners have continued to call up rookies to The Show.
Warren was drafted by the Mariners in the 23rd round of the 2015 June Amateur draft from Ashland University in Ohio. This season with the Arkansas Travelers, he appeared in 29 games, had a 2-1 record while posting a 1.71 ERA.
Justin Dunn was drafted by the Dodgers in the 37th round of the 2013 June Amateur Draft, but did not sign in order to pitch at Boston College. He was then drafted out of college by the Mets in 2016. Justin was a part of the acquisition deal that sent Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz to the Mets in December. Players also in that trade were Gerson Bautista, Anthony Swarzak, Jarred Kelenic, and Jay Bruce—who is now with the Phillies. While at Arkansas, he held a 9-5 record, 3.55 ERA in 25 games started.
The most anticipated player to be promoted in the Mariners organization has been Kyle Lewis. He was drafted 11th overall by the Mariners in 2016. He played his collegiate ball at Mercer University. Kyle has bounced around the different levels of the minors due to injuries but found himself full time at AA Arkansas this season. He appeared in 122 games, collected 120 hits, 25 doubles, 11 home runs, and batted .263.
Donnie Walton was drafted in the 5th round of the 2016 June Amateur Draft from Oklahoma State University. This season at Arkansas, he appeared in 124 games, collected 144 hits, 50 RBIs, while batting .300.
This should be exciting for Mariners fans, as this is the first glimpse of the future of this team.
