Ever since the end of the Bill Bavasi era in Seattle, general manager Jack Zduriencik and the Seattle Mariners have been stockpiling young talent. Many analysts, including Keith Law of ESPN, rank the Mariners as having the top-10 system in all of baseball, while Bleacher Report's own Mike Rosenbaum has them as high as fourth overall.
With all the talent the Mariners have in the minor league system, there are most certainly some who stand out more than others, especially when it comes to their potential. Whether it's being the next middle-of-the-order bat or being the next ace of the staff, the Mariners system is filled with players with tons of potential.
Over the course of this list, I will break down the top five young Mariners in terms of potential, including last seasons stats, a current major league player comparison and when Mariners fans should expect to see them make it to the show.
