2021 MLB Draft Preview: Gunnar Hoglund

Related Topics: Seattle Mariners, Jerry Dipoto

The Seattle Mariners are a few years removed from their Control the Zone™ mantra, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still at the forefront of Jerry Dipoto and his player development staff’s minds.

Should that be the case, Ole Miss righty Gunnar Hoglund will certainly whet the palate. Hoglund is one of the best strike throwers in the entire country having issued just 18 free passes in 91.1 innings pitched. He boasts a solid three-pitch mix in a fastball, slider and changeup, all of which, as you can imagine, are commanded well.
