5 Mariners in ESPN’s MLB top 100 — how do they compare to Astros?
The Mariners on the list are:
• No. 7, CF Julio Rodríguez
• No. 37, SP Luis Castillo
• No. 91, SP George Kirby
• No. 98, SP Logan Gilbert
• No. 99, RF Teoscar Hernández
So what can be taken away from the list? First, the No. 7 ranking for Rodríguez is significant for a couple of reasons. First, it’s a full eight positions before the first player from the defending champion Houston Astros, Yordan Álvarez, shows up. And second, in a “Season Prediction” for Rodríguez, ESPN senior writer David Schoenfield not only predicts that he will finish in the top three of the American League MVP but that he will lead Seattle in a surprise AL West title run.
