2017 Prospects

Seattle Mariners Top 10 Prospects

by Jeffrey Paternostro, Brendan Gawlowski and BP Prospect Staff


Last year's Mariners list

The State of the System: The tenth-best pitching prospect in the Braves system is the fourth-best prospect in this system. Draw your own conclusions.

The Top Ten

  1. RF Tyler O'Neill
  2. OF Kyle Lewis
  3. LHP Luiz Gohara
  4. RHP Max Povse
  5. RHP Andrew Moore
  6. RHP Nick Neidert
  7. 1B/DH Dan Vogelbach
  8. OF Mitch Haniger
  9. OF Brayan Hernandez
  10. SS Drew Jackson

The Big Question: Do the Mariners have the worst top pitching prospect in baseball?

Ask three evaluators what makes a good pitching prospect, and you may get three different answers. Many will naturally gravitate towards upside, and talk about size, arm strength, velocity, hammer breaking balls, and other terms you could associate with Noah Syndergaard. Some might bring up a pitcher’s ability to control his delivery, and to throw quality strikes with all of his pitches. Others will list a combination of stuff and mechanics, with a liberal dash of intangibles alongside.
