Hey kid, wanna get into minor league baseball? I’ve got absolutely exceptional news, the 2021 Everett AquaSox are here. Kate previewed the newly Low-A Modesto Nuts yesterday, and today I’m thrilled to bring you the High-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. The AquaSox have, without exaggeration, what may well be the most talented minor league team in all of minor league baseball this year, and one of the strongest concentrations of talent of any Mariners affiliate. Ever.
Everett AquaSox and High-A West: What’s Changed
Like Modesto, Everett remained with the same affiliate club (the M’s), but switched levels, and they are now a full season league instead of a short season club mostly used for recent draftees and the first big test for international signees.
