Here’s how the Mariners’ farm system performed Monday:

Tacoma Rainiers (AAA)– Pacific Coast League

No. 7 Jake Fraley, OF (24)
MON: DNP
2019: .290/.358/.525, 22-2B, 5-3B, 16 HR, 69 RBI, 32 BB, 82 SO, 20 SB

7.29.2019: Fraley’s name has come up in trade discussions this month. Rival clubs’ conversations suggest Seattle is after pitching. It’s likely just due dilligence, but you never know.

FTR, “has come up” doesn’t mean Seattle is the one bringing up the player.


No. 12 Shed Long, 2B/3B/OF (23)
MON: DNP (IL)
2019: .279/.343/.466, 7-2B, 4-3B, 8 HR, 35 RBI, 20 BB, 59 SO


No. 14 Braden Bishop, CF (25)
MON: Recalled 6.2.2019 (IL)
2019: .293/.378/.500, 13-2B, 7 HR, 29 RBI, 21 BB, 38 SO, 2 SB


No. 27 Erik Swanson, RHS (25)
MON: Recalled 7.16.2019
2019: 10 G, 6 GS, 24.1 IP, 28 H, 15 ER, 12 BB, 28 SO


No. 35 David McKay, RHR (24)
MON: DNP
2019: 27 G, 40.2 IP, 24 H, 30 BB, 67 SO


No. 36 Tim Lopes, 2B (24)
MON: Called Up 7.23.2019 (IL)
2019: .302/.362/.480, 30-2B, 2-3B, 10 HR, 60 RBI, 35 BB, 68 SO, 24 SB


Arkansas Travelers (AA) — Texas League

No. 2 Logan Gilbert, RHS (22)
MON: DNP
2019: 101.1 IP, 71 H, 26 ER, 25 BB, 126 SO


No. 3 Justin Dunn, RHS (23)
MON: DNP
2019: 95.1 IP, 86 H, 36 ER, 28 BB, 114 SO


No. 5 Justus Sheffield, LHS (23)
MON: DNP
2019: 108.1 IP, 102 H, 54 BB, 104 SO


No. 9 Kyle Lewis, OF (24)
MON: 2-4, SO
2019: .276/.365/.419, 22-2B, 2-3B, 8 HR, 50 RBI, 50 BB, 112 SO, 3 SB

7.29.2019: Lewis is batting .335/410/.503 in his last 50 games, which is more than half the season. Don’t look now but this could be the START of the Lewis the Mariners have been working to bring out for the past two years.


No. 10 Cal Raleigh, C (22)
MON: 0-4, 2 SO
2019: .251/.329/.496, 20-2B, 22 HR, 70 RBI, 39 BB, 85 SO


No. 11 Evan White, 1B (23)
MON: DNP
2019: .291/.342/.484, 12-2B, 2-3B, 13 HR, 42 RBI, 21 BB, 66 SO, SB


No. 17 Ricardo Sanchez, LHS (22)
MON: 6 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO
2019: 113.2 IP, 126 H, 53 ER, 29 BB, 114 SO


No. 18 Ljay Newsome, RHS (22)
MON: DNP
2019: 21 GS, 117 IP, 122 H, 50 ER, 11 BB, 138 SO


No. 22 Dom Thompson-Williams, OF (24)
MON: 1-4, 3 SO
2019: .237/.306/.407, 21-2B, 3-3B, 10 HR, 35 RBI, 29 BB, 114 SO, 14 SB

DT-W has had trouble with the swing-and-moss the past two months, and isn’t getting to his power much, either.


No. 24 Jake Haberer, RHR (24)
MON: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO
2019: 31 G, 43 IP, 32 H, 25 BB, 61 SO

7.29.2019: In his last nine appearances, Haberer has tossed 12.2 innings and allowed just two earned runs — both came in the same outing.  He’s struck out 18 in that span and walked seven — four of those came in a single game.

Consistency with control and command seem to the only issue for Haberer at this stage. The fastball and breaking both meet major lague requirements.


No. 26 Joey Gerber, RHP (22)
MON: DNP
2019: 34 G, 37.1 IP, 26 H, 13 ER, 20 BB, 52 SO


No. 30 Sam Delaplane, RHR (24)
MON: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 2 SO
2019: 35 G, 53 IP, 31 H, 21 BB, 95 SO

7.29.2019: Scouts tell me Delaplane’s fastball hasn;t had quote the zip it had earlier in the year, which might explain a tad plunge in production as well as usage. No sign of injury at all, it may just be that time of year. He’s pitched a lot.


No. 34 Wyatt Mills, RHR (24)
MON:
DNP
2019:
30.2 IP, 36 H, 19 ER, 14 BB, 48 SO


No. 39 Donnie Walton, 2B/SS (25)
MON: 1-3, BB
2019: .292/.388/.413, 12-2B, 3B, 10 HR, 49 BB, 58 SO, 8 SB


Modesto Nuts (A+) — California League (All-Star Break)

No. 1 Jarred Kelenic, OF (20)
MON: DNP
2019: .283/.368/.523, 24-2B, 4-3B, 15 HR, 45 RBI, 41 BB, 86 SO, 16 SB


No. 40 Raymond Kerr, LHP (24)
MON: DNP
2019: 24 G, 10 GS, 73.2 IP, 70 H, 37 BB, 64 SO

Kerr is due a promotion. He’s been nasty in relief.


West Virginia Power (A) — South Atlantic League (All-Star Break)

No. 4 — Julio Rodriguez, OF (18)
MON: 1-4, HR, 2 RBI, SO
2019: .273/.348/.463, 15-2B, 8 HR, 37 RBI, 16 BB, 55 SO

7.29.2019: Anyone grading Rodriguez’s raw power below 60 should be taken out back and … left there. Without internet access. And no whiskey. Forever.


No. 20 Austin Shenton, 3B (21)
MON: 1-5, RBI, SO
2019: .297/.385/.516, 12-2B, 2-3B, 4 HR, 24 RBI, 14 BB, 28 SO

7.29.2019: Be prepared for Shenton eventually, but as early as this fall, seeing most of his time at 1B or in a corner outfield spot. Good news is, his bat has played OK so far.


UR Josias De Los Santos, RHP (19)
MON: DNP
2019: 16 G, 11 GS, 69 IP, 71 H, 26 BB, 54 SO


Everett SquaSox (SS-A) — Northwest League

No. 6 George Kirby, RHS (21)
MON: DNP
2019: 4 GS, 10 IP, ER, 0 BB, 7 SO

7.23.2019: I caught Kirby’s third start in Vancouver and while his command wasn’t quite as sharp, he continued to demonstrate the plus control and consistent delivery that makes me believe in his future as much as any starter in the system.

7.19.2019: I was in attendance for Kirby’s second pro start in Paaco and from his pre-game bullpen through his 21 pitches (13 strikes) in the game and the postgame bully, it was easy to see some things not as noticeable in his time at Elon via video.

He pitches primarily from the first-base side of the slab and creates deception with the arm slot and by keeping his front shoulder closed until the arm is ready to explode through release. He got some gloveside run on the fastball away to RHBs in this game and hit the edges for called strikes a few times.

He didn’t throw a lot of offspeed stuff, but didn’t have to, either.

The heater hit 96 mph and sat 92-94. His delivery was clean and consistent. Kirby has a terrific foundation of command mechanics, present velocity and feel that suggest a high probability starter with perhaos No. 2 upside.


No. 15 Brandon Williamson, LHS (21)
MON: DNP
2019: 6.1 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 11 SO

7.29.2019: Williamson had fastball and power slider working in his last outing over the weekend, touching 95 mph and sitting easy at 91-92.


No. 19 Damon Casetta-Stubbs, RHS (19)
MON: DNP
2019: 87.2 IP, 92 H, 34 BB, 78 SO


No. 21 Juan Then, RHP (19)
MON: 3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 SO
2019: 19 IP, 14 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 21 SO


No. 25 Carter Bins, C (20)
MON: DNP
2019: .172/.386/.301, 4 HR, 25 BB, 38 SO


No. 31 Jorge Benitez, LHS (20)
MON: DNP
2019: 32.2 IP, 30 H, 12 ER, 20 BB, 38 SO


UR Adam Macko, LHP
MON: DNP
2019: 5 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 3BB, 7 SO
