Another full schedule down on the farm for the Seattle Mariners’ top prospects. Here’s how they the night went:

2019 Top 25: Justus Sheffield is No. 1

Class-A West Virginia — South Atlantic League

No. 2 — Jarred Kelenic, OF
THU: 3-4, 2B, 2 RBI, BB
2019: .172/.351/.241, 2B, 8 BB, 9 SO, SB

No. 4 — Julio Rodriguez, OF
THU: 0-5, 2 SO
2019: .355/.429/.452, 3-2B, 3 RBI, 4 BB, 5 SO

High-A Modesto — California League

No. 11 Cal Raleigh, C
THU: DNP
2019: .208/.367/.333 HR, 4 RBI, 6 BB, 7 SO

No. 17 Damon Casetta-Stubbs, RHP
THU: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 SO
2019: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 SO

Casetta-Stubbs made his ’19 debut in relief Thursday and pitched better than his line would suggest, though he did lose some command in his third inning of work. The Nuts defense let him down, too, and his pitch count got a little out of hand but he showed relatively well otherwise, touching 94 mph.

No. 23 Joey Gerber, RHP
THU: DNP
2019: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 SO

UR Jake Haberer, RHR
THU: DNP
2019: 3 G, 6 IP, 2 H, BB, 8 SO

UR Austin Hutchison, RHR
THU: 4 IP, 3 H, ER, 0 BB, 7 SO
2019: 0-1, 1.00 ERA, 9 IP, 6 H, ER, 2 BB, 13 SO

First mentioned Hutchison last summer when popped up in Modesto. He went five scoreless in his first outing last week, walking two and fanning six and was at it again Thursday.

The 24-year-old right-hander is likely a better relief prospect than a starter but he’s touched 93 mph and the changeup has improved since we last checked in on him in August.


Double-A Arkansas — Texas League

No. 5 Kyle Lewis, OF
THU: 1-4, 3B, R, BB
2019: .222/.364/.556, 2B, 3B 2 HR, 7 RBI, 6 BB, 8 SO

No. 6 Evan White, 1B
THU: 1-2
2019: .308/.367/.385, 2-2B 3 RBI, 2 BB, 8 SO

No. 14 Dom Thompson-Williams, OF
THU: 0-2, SO
2019: .280/.387/.560, 2 HR, 2B, 7 RBI, 3 BB, 5 SO, 2 SB

No. 15 Ricardo Sanchez, LHS
THU: DNP
2019: 11.1 IP, 11 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 10 SO

No. 18 Wyatt Mills, RHR
THU:
DNP
2019:
2.2 IP, 4 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO

No. 22 Art Warren, RHP
THU: 0.2 IP, H, SO
2019: 1-0, 3 SV, 2.45 ERA, 3.2 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 5 SO

Warren did allow an inherited runners score in the ninth Thursday but got the final two outs to halt the Drillers’ comeback.

No. 24 Jake Fraley, OF
THU: 1-4, HR, 3 RBI, SO
2019: .290/.353/.548, 2B, 2-3B, HR, 6 RBI, 2 BB, 7 SO, SB

Fraley hit his first home run of the year in the 2nd inning to highlight a 4-run frame for the Travelers.

Triple-A Tacoma — Pacific Coast League

No. 1 Justus Sheffield, LHP
THU:
DNP
2019:
4.2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 5 BB, SO, 2 HR

No. 8 Shed Long, 2B/3B/OF
THU: 0-3, BB, 2 SO
2019: .367/.441/.500, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, 4 BB, 8 SO

No. 16 Braden Bishop, CF
THU: DNP
2019: .333/.444/.500, 5-2B, 6 BB, 7 SO

NOTE: J.P. Crawford — not of prospect status any longer but still one for all intents and purposes. The shortstop went 2-for-3 with a double and walk Thursday and is batting .296/.
