Every year Baseball America releases their top 10 prospects for every MLB team and today they released their top 10 for the Seattle Mariners. Baseball America is one of the top websites for prospect rankings, mock drafts, etc. for baseball and they are high on the Mariners calling their farm system “Vastly improved” on this month’s edition of their magazine with Seattle’s Julio Rodriguez on the cover.
They also recently put Julio Rodriguez on the cover of their yearly prospect handbook which has had players like Fernando Tatis and Wander Franco on it in the past. As for their top 10 heading into the 2021 season, it looked like this.

1. OF Julio Rodriguez
2. OF Jarred Kelenic
3. RHP Logan Gilbert
4. RHP Emerson Hancock
5. SS Noelvi Marte
6. OF Taylor Trammell
7. RHP George Kirby
8. C Cal Raleigh
9. RHP Juan Then
10. RHRP Andres Muñoz
Julio Rodriguez topped the list, as Baseball America has been higher on Rodriguez than other sites like MLB.com who rank Jarred Kelenic over him. Other than that it is a pretty standard top 6 to what we have seen with other sites, with Gilbert, Hancock, Marte, and Trammell taking up the other 4 spots in the top 6.
They also include Juan Then in their top 10 unlike MLB.com and also have Andres Muñoz still listed as a prospect, unlike other sites. This means that The Mariners acquired two top 10 prospects in their system from the Padres in the trade that sent Austin Nola to San Diego according to Baseball America.
Baseball America has more information on the Mariners’ top 10 on their website which you can view by clicking here, and while it is behind a paywall as I said they offer some of the leading coverage on prospects and the draft for $6.99 a month.
Fangraphs has not released their top prospects list for the 2021 Seattle Mariners yet and their 2020 rankings were released in March. Prospects Live has theirs updated for 2021 and so does MLB.com if you would like to view more Mariners prospect rankings.
