One month into the 2013 season, the Seattle Mariners are five games below .500 with a record of 12-17 but somehow currently in third place in the AL West.
As we turn the page from April to May on the calendar, can the Mariners improve upon their slow start?
It's hard to say, as the team has finally shown some signs of life during its recent homestand. Unfortunately, the team's upcoming travel plans could complicate things.
The question is, will any of the team's top prospects be ready?
While it may be a bit presumptuous to forecast what may happen in the next month or so, I figured it might help to check in on how the Mariners' top 10 high-level prospects are currently doing.
Understand, though, that the focus of today is to look at players we may actually see in the next year or two, rather than lower-level prospects like Victor Sanchez, Gabriel Guerrero or Tyler Pike.
So without further ado, let's see how the kids are doing.
