#26 Aaron Fletcher: left-handed reliever the Mariners acquired from the Washington Nationals for Hunter Strickland. Fletcher was drafted in the 14th round in 2018 by the Nationals. He might have been picked higher if he hadn’t had Tommy John surgery during his sophomore year of college in 2016.
Fletcher started the year in low-level A and finished double-A in 2019. The Mariners assigned him to double-A Arkansas when they acquired him. He has a chance to make the bullpen out of spring training.
In a good sign for him, the Mariners don’t have many lefty candidates.
