Go behind the scenes of the Seattle Mariners’ selection of Evan White

@Mariners

The Seattle Mariners selected Kentucky first baseman Evan White with the 17th-overall pick in the first round of the 2017 MLB Draft on Monday.

White was a player the Mariners had their eye on all season.

“We got a player in mind that we’re hoping to get, Evan White, first baseman University of Kentucky,” southeast regional scout supervisor Jesse Kapellusch said.

It’s awesome to see White go to a team that really wanted him. I know Big Blue Nation will be keeping a close eye on White throughout his professional career.
