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

Tacoma Rainiers (AAA)– Pacific Coast League

No. 5 Justus Sheffield, LHS
MON: DNP
2019: 54.1 IP, 52 H, 27 ER, 40 BB, 46 SO, 5.74 ERA

6.7.2019: Hot and cold for Sheffield, and far too much cold. At this point, I wonder if Sheffield doesn’t get skipped in the rotation once or twice if they’re working on some mechanical adjustments, because he’s just not finding a consistent release point. The stuff is fine. He’s missing bats. The changeup isn’t being used a lot but he’s not getting into a lot of changeup counts, either.


NEW: Top 40 Prospect Rankings Update


No. 9 Shed Long, 2B/3B/OF
MON: Recalled 5.21.2019
2019: .293/.362/.510, 6-2B, 4-3B, 6 HR, 23 RBI, 16 BB, 35 SO


No. 10 Braden Bishop, CF
MON: Recalled 6.2.2019
2019: .293/.378/.500, 13-2B, 7 HR, 29 RBI, 21 BB, 38 SO, 2 SB


No. 22 Erik Swanson, RHS
MON: DNP (IL)
2019: 3 GS, 11 IP, 11 H, 5 R, 4 BB, 14 SO


No. 26 Gerson Bautista, RHR
MON: Recalled 6.4.2019
2019: 10 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 4 BB, 15 SO, 3 WP


No. 27 Jake Haberer, RHR
MON: DNP
2019: 19 G, 25.2 IP, 21 H, 13 BB, 36 SO, 4.81 ERA


No. 30 David McKay, RHR
MON: 1.1 IP, H, ER, 3 BB, 2 SO
2019: 17 G, 5.26 ERA, 25.2 IP, 19 H, 19 BB, 40 SO


No. 32 Tim Lopes, 2B
MON: 0-3, BB, SO
2019: .307/.361/.477, 20-2B, 3B, 5 HR, 34 RBI, 20 BB, 42 SO, 14 SB


UR Robert Perez, 1B
MON: DNP
2019: .298/.353/.532, 3-2B, 3B, 2 HR, 3 BB, 15 SO


Arkansas Travelers (AA) — Texas League

No. 3 Justin Dunn, RHS
MON: DNP
2019: 54 IP, 53 H, 21 ER, 15 BB, 67 SO, 3.50 ERA


No. 7 Kyle Lewis, OF
MON: DNP
2019: .255/.347/.385, 11-2B, 2-3B, 4 HR, 37 RBI, 30 BB, 65 SO, 2 SB

6.9.2019: Lewis is finding the barrel a lot more the last 10 days with 18 hits in his last 42 at-bats with three doubles, a triple and a home run. Despite uninspiring numbers, he’s above-average in the Texas League with a 104 wRC+ and .338 wOBA.


No. 11 Jake Fraley, OF
MON: DNP
2019: .333/.402/.576, 14-2B, 2-3B, 11 HR, 45 RBI, 19 BB, 45 SO, 14 SB

6.9.2019: Fraley played Sunday for the first time since Game 1 Friday night and he does this? He does not belong in Double-A anymore. No matter which way you split Fraley’s season — smaller samples, cherry-picking, month-by-month, he’s hit.

His lone black mark is left-handed pitching, but he’s only had 40 PAs against them. In Triple-A, they’ll go to the pen every time after the 5th inning to get the lefty.

Fraley now is No. 3 in the TL in homers, No. 4 in RBI, No. 1 in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. Oh, and also No. 1 in wRC+. So it’s not just traditional numbers. It’s time to challenge him beyond Arkansas.


No. 14 Evan White, 1B
MON: DNP
2019: .286/.362/.442, 4-2B, 3B, 6 HR, 15 RBI, 17 BB, 37 SO, SB

6.9.2019: White has 20 hits in his last 50 at-bats and he’s starting to get to his power a little bit of late, including homers Friday, Saturday and Sunday, a double Tuesday and a homer last Sunday.


No. 20 Ricardo Sanchez, LHS
MON: DNP
2019: 67 IP, 69 H, 26 ER, 17 BB, 63 SO, 3.49 ERA


No. 21 Dom Thompson-Williams, OF
MON: DNP
2019: .247/.330/.447, 11-2B, 3-3B, 7 HR, 23 RBI, 21 BB, 52 SO, 10 SB


No. 35 Wyatt Mills, RHR
MON:
DNP
2019:
25 IP, 28 H, 13 ER, 11 BB, 25 SO, 2 SVS


No. 29 Darren McCaughan, RHS
MON: DNP
2019: 11 GS, 2.88 ERA, 65.2 IP, 64 H, 5 BB, 56 SO


No. 39 Sam Delaplane, RHR
MON: DNP
2019: 22 G, 33.2 IP, 22 H, 15 BB, 67 SO, 2 SVS


Modesto Nuts (A+) — California League

No. 1 — Jarred Kelenic, OF
MON: DNP
2019: .316/.398/.595, 15-2B, 3-3B, 13 HR, 34 RBI, 27 BB, 50 SO, 10 SB

Kelenic has been out since Thursday with a jammed wrist.


No. 2 Logan Gilbert, RHS
MON: 4 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 SO
2019: 57.2 IP, 43 H, 14 ER, 12 BB, 80 SO, 2.57 ERA

Gilbert endured several extended at-bats and was pulled after 89 pitches (62 strikes), perhaps a sign he had trouble finishing off hitters. The right-hander got to two strikes on 15 of 18 batters and induced 14 swings and misses, yet ended with just four punchouts and allowed six hits.


No. 12 Cal Raleigh, C
MON: 1-4, SO
2019: .230/.299/.407, 16-2B, 7 HR, 32 RBI, 20 BB, 52 SO


No. 16 Ljay Newsome, RHS
MON: DNP
2019: 13 GS, 72 IP, 75 H, 28 ER, 9 BB, 94 SO, 3.50 ERA


No. 28 Joey Gerber, RHP
MON: DNP
2019: 19 G, 21 IP, 15 H, 8 ER, 8 BB, 32 SO


No. 38 Luis Liberato, CF
MON: DNP (IL)
2019: .288/.363/.444, 5-2B, 7 HR, 29 RBI, 20 BB, 41 SO, 4 SB


West Virginia Power (A) — South Atlantic League

No. 4 — Julio Rodriguez, OF
MON: 1-2, 2B, 2 BB, SO
2019: .364/.475/.485, 4-2B, 3 RBI, 6 BB, 6 SO


No. 25 Damon Casetta-Stubbs, RHS
MON: DNP
2019: 37.2 IP, 52 H, 30 ER, 11 BB, 30 SO, 8.22 ERA


No. 36 Ryne Inman, RHS
MON: DNP
2019: 12 GS, 57 IP, 48 H, 28 ER, 23 BB, 69 SO, 4.42 ERA


No. 40 Jake Anchia, C
MON: 1-4, HR, 2 SO
2019: .238/.304/.435, 5-2B, 9 HR, 10 BB, 58 SO

Anchia hit a grand slam in the eighth inning to give the Power a 5-4 lead, and threw out two of three would-be’s.


DSL Mariners (R)

No. 8 Noelvi Marte, SS
MON: 1-4, BB, SO
2019: .357/.387/.571, 2B, 3B, HR, 5 RBI, 2 BB, 6 SO, 2 SB

Marte has a hit in all seven games so far in 2019 and while hitting streaks in and of themselves aren’t a sign of much, there is something to be said for consistently putting forth good plate appearances, and hitting streaks can often be a sign of that.

Marte will not be 18 until October, so like with Julio Rodriguez last year, Marte is on pace to hit the states for full-season ball in 2020.


UR Arturo Guerrero, OF
MON: 1-4. HR, RBI, BB, SO
2019: .318/.423/.500, 2B, HR, 2 BB, 7 SO, 3 SB

Guerrero is a 6-foot-3, 170-pound outfielder with plus speed and above-average tools across the board. He’s a right-handed batter who will turn 19 in September.


UR Milkar Perez, 3B
MON: 0-3, 2 BB, 2 SO
2019: .120/.241/.120, 3 BB, 9 SO

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Perez has mature plate skills and the ability to use most of the field. He’s a right-handed batter and is from Nicaragua. He will be 18 in October.


UR Jonatan Clase, CF
MON: 3-5, HR, SB
2019: .250/.353/.393, 2B, HR, 5 BB, 7 SO, 2 SB

Clase is 5-foot-8, 160 pounds and packs a quick left-handed swing with some torque and loft. He just turned 17 May 23.


UR Asdrubal Bueno, SS
MON:
2019:

Bueno is a right-handed hitter out of Venezuela. He’s 5-foot-11, 177 pounds and has good bat speed and an aggressive game plan. He will turn 18 in November.


UR Jose Caguana, C
MON: 1-4
2019: .300/.333/.350, 2B, BB, 5 SO

Caguana is a right-handed hitting backstop from Venezuela. He just turned 17 in April and stands 5-foot-10 and 182 pounds.


UR Abdiel Medina, RHP
MON: DNP
2019: 2 G, 5.2 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 5 BB, 8 SO

Medina is a 5-foot-11, 165-pound right-hander from Panama.  He’s a fastball-curveball-changeup arm ith a live arm and some feel for the secondaries. The heater has touched 87 mph. He turned 17 in January.


UR Yeury Tatiz, RHP
MON: DNP
2019: 2 GS, 9 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, BB, 11 SO

Tatiz stands a projectable 6-foot-3 and 178 pounds with some buggy whip in the arm action and stuff with promise, including a fastball up to 91 mph and a developing breaking ball. He’ll be 19 in November.


UR Wilton Perez, RHP
MON: DNP
2019: 2 GS, 7.1 IP, 9 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 SO
