New, comments

The draft starts today and the Mariners pick twice. We've got you covered.

MLB.com

The draft is finally here, and despite the lack of one elite prospect to head it this year, there's plenty of intrigue as the top ten is still relatively up in the air. The Mariners have two picks today, the #6 overall and #74, the last pick in the second competitive balance round. Unless, of course, somebody other than the Mariners decides to sign Kendrys Morales in the next eight hours.

Today's coverage includes picks #1-74, and begins at 4pm PST. Here's the pick order.
