Mariners Honorable Mentions
Reinheimer signed with Seattle as a non-roster invite last month and he has been a nice surprise so far. The Mariners drafted him in the 5th round of the 2013 MLB draft out of East Carolina University and was with Seattle until 2015.
He’s put together a decent minor league career: a .272 average, .698 OPS, 25 home runs, and 135 stolen bases in 756 games.
The versatile infielder has played just 23 games in the big leagues back in 2017 and 2018 with the Diamondbacks and Mets. Reinheimer has been seeing time in the second rotation of position players this Spring Training and is batting .250, with a game-tying two-run home run, two walks, and one stolen base.
Nothing spectacular, but he deserves an honorable mention.
Haggerty has also been solid thus far. In 10 at-bats he has three hits, one triple (nearly a home run), one walk, and two stolen bases to lead the team. The 26-year-old is trying to claim the utility player role and is doing enough as of now.
He has a .300 batting average, .364 OBP, .500 slugging, and .864 OPS. But, I think his two stolen bases are particularly important and give him some bonus points.
The Mariners catching prospect is also putting up some impressive offensive numbers. In nine at-bats, Raleigh has three hits, one double, one triple, and two RBIs.
Together, that equals a .333 average, .667 slugging percentage, and 1.000 OPS. This is a great start for Raleigh who has been getting rave reviews from the Mariners coaching staff. I am hoping to see a couple of Raleigh home runs in the next couple of weeks as Spring Training really starts to heat up.
