Mariners land two picks

Both came after the first round, but both got over-slot deals that fit into late-first round or supplemental round type money. The Mariners were able to sign second-round pick Marcus Littlewood and 16th rounder Jordan Shipers on Monday. You can check out Littlewood’s Draft Report here.

Littlewood, a shortstop from the Utah high school ranks, got $900,000 to sign. Shipers, a prep lefty from Missouri, got $800,000. Littlewood had been committed to the University of San Diego. Shipers was set to go to Missouri State. Instead, both are now Mariners.

The Mariners can now turn their attention to signing third-rounder Ryne Stanek, the Kansas high school product with a commitment to Universiy of Arkansas. They also have James Paxton, the fourth-round pick, but because he was not in school last year, they can negotiate with him past the deadline (like the Royals did with Aaron Crow recently).
