RANKINGS: Latest Top 40 Prospects Update | MLB: UPDATED 2020 Draft Order

It wasn’t the most glamorous day on the farm for the Seattle Mariners’ top prospects but there’s too much talent to have an empty day. Here’s how the top prospects performed Wednesday.

2019 Top 25: Justus Sheffield is No. 1

Class-A West Virginia — South Atlantic League

No. 2 — Jarred Kelenic, OF
WED: 0-3, BB
2019: .080/.281/.120, 2B, 7 BB, 9 SO, SB

No. 4 — Julio Rodriguez, OF
WED: 0-3, BB
2019: .423/.500/.538, 3-2B, 3 RBI, 4 BB, 3 SO

High-A Modesto — California League

No. 11 Cal Raleigh, C
WED: 1-6, 2 RBI, 2 SO
2019: .208/.367/.333 HR, 4 RBI, 6 BB, 7 SO

No. 23 Joey Gerber, RHP
WED: 0.2 IP, H, 2 ER, 2 BB, SO
2019: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 SO

UR Jake Haberer, RHR
WED: 2 IP, H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 SO
2019: 3 G, 6 IP, 2 H, BB, 8 SO

Haberer, a free agent pickup last summer after he went undrafted out of Eastern Illinois, sits 93-96, has touched 98-99 and has already shown an average slider with solid-average command, and that combo is just too much for the Cal League.

Furthermore, Haberer is adept at locating the slider for called strikes away from LHBs or using it more as a chase pitch versus righties. In the latter scenario, he gets more tilt and runs it off the plate away.

Haberer has a great shot to jump into the Top 25 for the first update at the end of the month, especially considering all the volatility that comes with relief pitchers and the number of relivers in the back half of the rankings right now.

Double-A Arkansas — Texas League

No. 5 Kyle Lewis, OF

2019: .217/.357/.522, 2B, 2 HR, 7 RBI, 5 BB, 8 SO

After Jose Lobaton singled to lead off the bottom of the ninth in a 5-5 game, Shed Long hit got an 0-1 hanging slider and sent it sailing over the wall AND scoreboard in right-center field. It’s his first Triple-A homer and his first three RBI of the year on a banner night for Long at the plate. It was the foruth 4-hit game of Long’s pro career.

No. 16 Braden Bishop, OF
WED: 0-4, BB, 2 SO
2019: .385/.484/.577, 5 2B, 5 RBI, 5 BB, 5 SO
