Watch Kelenic use a Frisbee as target practice
Baseball America ranks five Mariners in 2020 preseason Top-100, led by No. 8 Julio Rodríguez
No. 8 - OF Julio Rodríguez
No. 11 - OF Jarred Kelenic
No. 54 - 1B Evan White
No. 59 - RHP Logan Gilbert
No. 92 - SS Noelvi Marte
Video of drumming. I know it is all good in love and baseball.
I’m putting money right now Julio is going to be better than Kelenic. I think Kelenic can be a stud but Julio has Trout type talent.
Agreed. What little I saw of Julio in spring last year on TV sold me. Very special talent.
Another list with just the outfielders
Here are MLB's Top 10 OF prospects for 2020
The Top 10 (ETA)
1. Luis Robert, White Sox (2020)
2. Jo Adell, Angels (2020)
3. Jarred Kelenic, Mariners (2021)
4. Cristian Pache, Braves (2020)
5. Dylan Carlson, Cardinals (2020)
6. Julio Rodriguez, Mariners (2022)
7. Drew Waters, Braves (2020)
8. JJ Bleday, Marlins (2021)
9. Riley Greene, Tigers (2022)
10. Alex Kirilloff, Twins (2020)
Julio seems like he will be a better force at the plate kind of reminds me of a Nelson Cruz that is a big ass kid for his size. Kelenic seems like he can be the leader of the club house that can be solid at a little bit of everything.
Mariners sent RHP Matt Festa outright to Triple-A Tacoma.
Festa cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week. He'll stick around as organizational depth.
Keith Law Rankings:
By John Trupin@JohnTrupin Mar 2, 2020, 7:11am PSTShare this on Facebook (opens in new window)
Longtime public prospect writer Keith Law has released his annual ranking of MLB organization farm systems, under the banner of The Athletic. He ranked the Mariners 11th out of 30, noting with shock that Seattle’s farm is in fact “good”. Law attributes the improvements to “Jerry DiPoto (sic), who hasn’t traded a prospect away in several weeks now”, as well as consecutive promising drafts, a couple high-profile international signees in Julio Rodriguez and Noelvi Marte (though Law does once again mistakenly list the two as having signed the same year), and of course the trades that started the “step-back” in the first place.
Law’s ranking puts the Mariners lower than either of the other two major publications to release their rankings thus far, with Baseball America placing the Mariners 5th overall and Baseball Prospectus putting Seattle 4th (though the latter might be subject to change, as it is drawn from the BP Annual book - their rankings have not gone online publicly yet). Law has always been forthright about his preference towards upside over high floors, and Seattle, outside of Rodriguezand Marte, is flush with players that would be considered more high-floor than roof-raising. My own personal rankings have Seattle in the 6-9 range, so while this strikes me as a bit low, it does reflect a balance to BA and BP. The departure of Kiley McDaniel for ESPN has likely slowed FanGraphs’ prospect rollout, but once their list concludes (and the Mariners list is released) we’ll have a full array of the major sites rankings entering the season.

The decision to restock the farm has gone well with some good drafts and trades to turn this into a top 10 system that has some guys starting to show up in the big leagues
Nowhere to put this, but I suggest buying MLB the Show this year. It actually has the top prospects in this years game for the Mariners
Ugh Im an Xbox guy and have been waiting forever for a baseball game. Kinda ridiculous. But sounds like next year I could finally get my wish
I haven't played these games for 20 years but sounds fun. Back in the late 80's my friend and I use to binge play all night different sports games. Play all night and fuel up on Domino's Pizza. Mad those were good times then life got in the way...lol.
It’s not for the Xbox? Damn, didn’t know that.
Well it’s just fun since there isn’t any sports on and generally they don’t have legit prospects on there.
No Playstation has had the exclusive rights for years. It's almost 10ish years since Xbox had a current baseball game but I think thats finally changing in 2021
