NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell brings us a brief overview on the Mariners 2013 MLB Draft selections. From pick 1 to pick 10, Clinton gives us an inside look at what these players did prior to draft day, where they may play for the rest of this season, and what the M’s plan on doing with them, as there are a couple who will be switching positions once they receive their assignments. The top 10 look pretty solid, lots of power and a few nice looking pitchers as well.

NWSB insider and Mariners blogger Jon Irwin brings us his breakdown of the Mariner’s second-round pick in the 2013 draft. With the No. 49 overall pick the M’s selected outfielder Austin Wilson from Stanford University.

NWSB insider and Mariners blogger Jon Irwin brings us his breakdown of the Mariner’s first-round pick in the 2013 draft. With the No. 13 overall pick the M’s selected third baseman D.J. Peterson from the University of New Mexico. Peterson was arguably the purest college hitter in this year’s draft, with his bat drawing many similarities to that of Mike Zunino—Seattle’s first rounder from last year.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell weighs in with his overview of the top ten players selected in the 2012 MLB first player draft by the Seatlle Mariners. Don’t expect many of these players to make it to the show, especially the way that Jack Zduriencik likes to deal prospects. Mike Zunino, a catcher who hits a ton, and calls a mean game as well, is heir apparent for the M’s starting catching duties as soon as he is available.
