Mariners Sign Several Draft Picks

Last night was the deadline for teams to sign 2010 draft picks, and the Mariners were able to ink a couple more of their top picks. The two most notable were infielder Marcus Littlewood and LHP Jordan Shipers. For info on Littlewood, take a look here and here. As for Shipers, he’s a 5’10 lefty with a decent fastball that can touch the low 90′s, as well as both an average change and curve. He was a 16th round pick, and he signed for significantly over-slot at $800,000.

The two most disappointing misses for the M’s on signing day were RHP Ryne Stanek and LHP James Paxton. Remember, they had already agreed to a deal with supplemental first rounder Taijuan Walker well before the deadline.

    The book is not written on Paxton as of yet. Since he is coming from an independent league, there is no deadline.

    I think he signs sooner or later.
