Today, we offer up some tasty Fantasy tidbits about the Mariners’ newest catching prospect.
- It looks like the Mariners have another good young catching prospect on their hands. Last year, Seattle grabbed Jeff Clement with its first round pick, and he’s already ascended all the way to Triple-A. This year, the first position player the Mariners chose was in the sixth round when they selected Adam Moore from the University of Texas-Arlington. Having transferred from Nebraska this year, Moore led the Mavericks in hitting (.350), homers (10) and RBI (50). He was assigned to Everett and made a quick adjustment to wooden bats, going 12-for-24 through his first six games. Within two weeks, still batting a robust .317, Moore got a promotion to Wisconsin. He’s found the going a bit tougher there, but is starting to come around. The 22-year-old, 6’3″, 215-pounder can also apparently play first and third should he wind up getting blocked in the organization, but for now his focus is on catching.
