Should M's Have Interest In Tabata? |

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners have long been searching for right-handed hitting and have clear and present need to improve their outfield crop. The Pittsburgh Pirates may have an answer. Maybe. Maybe not. The Pirates, reports Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune, are shopping outfielder Jose Tabata .

PI's 2014 M's Prospects of the Year |

prospectinsider.com — Prospect Insider does it a little differently. Multiple outlets as well as the organization itself will name minor league players of the year. Many already have done so. PI sticks to prospects, which means the 26-year-old repeating Double-A for the third straight year isn't even a candidate, nor is the 29-year-old in Triple-A or the 23-year-old repeating the Midwest League.

M's busy internationally |

prospectinsider.com — M's busy internationally Every July 2 Major League clubs race to finalize deals with teenage prospects. Most of these prospects are from Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. A few hail from Columbia, Brazil, South Korea, Panama or Nicaragua. Often these players fizz out and never reach the big leagues.

M's Mid-Season Prospect Report |

prospectinsider.com — When the 2012 season ended the Seattle Mariners had one of the top 10 or 12 farm systems in baseball. I made the argument they could have been as high as No. 8. Their stock of talent was led by right-hander Taijuan Walker and left-handers Danny Hultzen and James Paxton.

Scouting Mariners, Dodgers in PCL

prospectinsider.com — TACOMA - There were several interesting young players in uniform at Cheney Stadium when the Tacoma Rainiers (Mariners) hosted the Albuquerque Isotopes (Dodgers) Saturday evening. The pitching matchup pitted two non-prospects in right-handers Jordan Pries and Red Patterson, but both have enough stuff and command to present a challenge to each other as well as the opposing lineups.

M's Draft Notes: Morgan, Day 2 |

prospectinsider.com — Rounds three through 10 of the 2014 MLB Draft took place Friday, with the Seattle Mariners selecting sixth in each round. It was an excellent Day 1 for the club, tabbing Alex Jackson at No. 6 and selecting Gareth Morgan at No. 74.

M's nail No. 6 pick |

prospectinsider.com — M's nail No. 6 pick The Seattle Mariners selected Rancho Bernardo High School's Alex Jackson with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft. It will be years before anyone can say with certainty that the club landed a high quality big leaguer with the pick, but the club benefited from best player available meeting organizational need when the Minnesota Twins selected Nick Gordon at No.

Shortstops, catchers and corners |

prospectinsider.com — The Seattle Mariners' farm system is not very good right now. Both Taijuan Walker and James Paxton , who each qualify, still, are on the disabled list, but a lot of the club's better young talents are in the major leagues and no longer qualify, including Brad Miller and Mike Zunino .

Draft Watch: College bat battle

prospectinsider.com — For much of the amateur season the draft chatter has very much been about the arms, and rightfully so. North Carolina State lefty ace Carlos Rodon, Vanderbilt right-hander Tyler Beede, LSU horse Aaron Nola, prep lefty Brady Aiken and flamethrowing righty Tyler Kolek each serve as surefire first-round talents, possibly all in the top 10 come June.

Prospect Insider's 2014 MLB Predictions |

prospectinsider.com — Prospect Insider's 2014 MLB Predictions The 2014 Major League Baseball season is upon us. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks opened the season in Australia last week, but the rest of baseball joins the race Sunday and Monday. After a winter of free agent signings and trades it's time for clubs to put their transactions to the test.
