Live Draft Blog: Mariners Select Virginia LHP Danny Hultzen

Alex CarsonCorrespondent IIIJune 6, 2011

The Mariners, as you might have heard by now, have the second overall pick in the draft.

It appears the Pittsburgh Pirates are settling on UCLA right handed started Gerrit Cole, so we'll work off the assumption that the Mariners have their pick of every available position player.

Rice third baseman Anthony Rendon was the pre-season front runner, but is now surrounded by some shoulder concerns. Two prep players, shortstop Francisco Lindor and outfielder Bubba Starling, figure to be the other two big-name options for Seattle.

We'll update you, right here, all day with any developments, rumors or analysis that comes available.
