After a breakout season with the Mariners’ High-A team, Art Warren burst onto the national radar with an AFL performance that saw him serve as the closer on a talent-stacked Peoria team that would go on to win the AFL championship and giving Warren the distinction of recording the final out in two separate championship games within the space of three months. He was last seen shutting the door on a wild AFL championship game.
We talk with Art about his draft day experience, his breakout season, embracing Jarrod Dyson’s philosophy of champagne flow, and what he’s excited about in spring training, where he’ll be in big league camp. He also provides some key insights into the Mariners’ organizational philosophies and his approach on the mound, and tells a pretty awesome story about getting some mid-hot tub advice from “King Felix.” As with any prospect podcast, there is a healthy discussion of video games, as well as Art’s steadfast, and admirable, belief that the Cleveland Browns’ day will come.
