The Seattle Mariners are barely hanging on in the American League West. If the M’s are unable to gain ground quickly, the season could be lost and the team may be relegated testing out young prospects for next year.
Some of the top prospects have made their way to Safeco Field this season. This either means the farm system is working or it means that the Mariners need a little bit of help.
Perhaps it is a little bit of both.
Another season at the bottom of the division may bode well for young players down on the farm who want to get a look, but it is tough for Seattle fans to go through another season of unfulfilled potential. There has been some movement on the top prospects list this season, and here are a few updates.
Note: No. 3 prospect Mike Zunino, No. 4 prospect Nick Franklin and No. 6 prospect Brad Miller are currently on the 25-man roster. No. 12 prospect Jordan Shipers is currently on the disabled list.
