The Seattle Mariners own the 6th overall pick in the upcoming 2020 MLB Draft. They’ll have no shortage of options, with a veritable cornucopia of profiles and players from which to choose. But which direction will the go?
The smart money is probably going to be placed on starting pitching and more specifically, college starting pitching. If last year’s draft is any indication, the Mariners are going to prioritize collegiate arms in the upcoming draft. Now, obviously things change drastically from year to year and if the best player on their board with the 6th pick isn’t a college arm, they should absolutely take that player.
