With the draft only two and a half months away, it's just about time to start paying attention to what kind of players might be available to the Seattle Mariners with their number-12 pick. John Sickels and Matt Garrioch of SB Nation's Minor League Ball ran a mock draft that saw Sickels nab LHP Sean Manaea on the Mariners' behalf.
12) Seattle Mariners (Sickels): I can't let the big lefty slide any further than this. Sure, he's somewhat raw for a college guy and needs time to work his issues out, but the upside as a potential number one starter is too much to ignore at this stage of the draft. Sean Manaea, LHP, Indiana State University
