Cade Marlowe was by no means a prime prospect, wasn’t drafted excessive, and by no means confirmed up on any prime draft rankings. He was drafted within the twentieth spherical of the 2019 draft out of the College of West Georgia by the Seattle Mariners.
Ever since being drafted, all Marlowe has executed is carry out. He began his skilled profession in Everett again in 2019 when it was nonetheless a brief season affiliate and he slashed .301/.372/.438 with three dwelling runs in 251 plate appearances. He has continued to hit at each degree he has been at, producing a profession .288/.375/.514 slash line in simply over 1300 plate appearances within the minor leagues. That slash line is similar to Jarred Kelenic. Kelenic’s career minor league slash line is .295/.369/.540 in slightly below 1300 plate appearances.
Marlowe is already nearly 26 years previous, three years older than Kelenic, which isn’t an insignificant distinction. Nevertheless, with Marlowe off to begin to the season once more in Triple-A, he could be able to hit if he will get a call-up to the massive leagues this season. He was ready within the wings to make his large league debut within the playoffs with the Mariners final October, so the group should assume he can contribute to the Mariners quickly.

Mariners Draft Highlight
After taking a look at a highschool shortstop in final week’s Mariners Draft Highlight, we’re going to examine in on one other one who could also be out there on the again finish of the primary spherical of the draft, Kevin McGonigle.
McGonigle is an 18-year-old left-handed hitting shortstop from Pennsylvania, the place 2022 first spherical choice Cole Younger was from. He’s dedicated to Auburn within the SEC, so if he doesn’t get the draft bonus he’s on the lookout for, he might be headed south to play within the premier convention in school baseball.
Joe Doyle of Future Stars Series thinks extremely of his twenty third ranked prospect, “McGonigle is a smaller, twitchy infielder with lightning for palms and spectacular core power on the plate.” MLB Pipeline says McGonigle, “could be among the best pure hitters within the class”. Including one other prep shortstop who is understood for his hitting capability sounds so much like what the Mariners did final yr within the draft. Doyle rounded out his feedback on McGonigle by saying, “Some imagine the profile is greatest suited as an influence second baseman, although proponents level to his athleticism, lateral burst and sparky actions as causes to let him develop as a SS.”
