The Mariners farm system is starting to look good again after a drop in the last couple of years. The only reason the farm system looked to be struggling was from the amount of impressive graduations that they saw. Today, we take a look back at the not-so-far-away past to look at some of those prospects, jumping back a few years to look at the Mariners crop of talent from their 2021 farm system.

The major prospect to emerge in the bottom half of the top 10 is All-Star Cal Raleigh. The switch-hitting catcher was ranked 8th by MLB Pipeline in the Mariners system at the time, and profiled as a bat first catcher with power from both sides of the plate. Cal has improved defensively in a significant way since Florida State, and now he's a top 5 catcher in Major League Baseball.

Brandon Williamson (#10) and Noelvi Marte (#7) were both packaged in the Luis Castillo deal of course, with Marte recently getting suspended for PED's. Taylor Trammell was ranked #6 on this list, with a scouting profile for high OBP and plus-defense. Unfortunately, his strikeout problems (37% career K rate) will limit his opportunities at the MLB level.
