The Seattle Mariners had to dip into their minor league depth recently when AJ Pollock had to be placed on the Injured List. In his place the club called up outfielder Cade Marlowe from Triple-A Tacoma to take his place. Marlowe had been hitting .255/.332/.461 in 69 games for the Rainiers.
Since Marlowe has been called up he has only had 15 plate appearances but he has made them count. He is three-for-eleven with four walks and two strikeouts. He has also stolen two bases and he hit his first home run against Minnesota in a 9-7 victory.

In the five games that Marlowe has appeared in the Mariners are 4-1. While these wins cannot be solely attributed to the rookie, he has certainly contributed to the teams success. He should continue to get playing time as long as Pollock is out and if he can continue to contribute at the bottom of the lineup then the rookie might get more opportunities to play at the Major League level.

Mariners Draft Picks Making Pro Debuts
A few of the Seattle Mariners 2023 draft picks have started to make their professional debuts in the minor leagues. The first stop for almost all of their draft picks will be the Arizona Complex League team. Three players have already been there and been sent to the Modesto Nuts, the lowest level of full season baseball in the Mariners farm system.
Second round selection Ben Williamson is with the Nuts now and has gone three for his first six plate appearances in pro ball. Fifth round pick Brock Rodden also has collected his first hit with the Nuts and finally tenth rounder Jared Sundstrom has gone two-for-eight in his first taste of professional baseball.
