Mariners select Kentucky's Evan White in of MLB draft

Blue Jays use trio of home runs to knock off Mariners 4-2

The Mariners had the 17th pick, using it on the Gahanna, OH., native, who bats right and throws left.

While White is listed as a first baseman, he is as far from the archetype as one can possibly be. He's a semifinalist for the USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award and was a second-team All-SEC selection.

White's progression through the minor leagues will likely be dictated by whether he stays at first base, but either way, he may move a bit slower than a typical college first baseman because he still needs to add strength. He posted a flawless 1.000 fielding percentage. He hit a team-high.373, making him the first player since Josh Loggins in 1997-98 to lead the Wildcats in hitting in back-to-back seasons. Seattle director of amateur scouting Scott Hunter said the organization will keep White at first base, although he could someday play the outfield if needed.

The Seattle Mariners selected 18-year-old right-hander Sam Carlson out of Burnsville (Minn.) High School with their second-round pick (No. 55 overall) on Monday evening.

White earned All-American honors for his play during his junior year.

White is the first Kentucky player drafted in the first round since Alex Meyer was taken 23rd overall by the Washington Nationals in 2011.

During the summer of 2016, he was selected to play for USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team, starting 15 of 19 games in the club's tour around the globe as both a first baseman and outfielder.

The Mariners have not drafted an All-Star player in the first round since 2003 when they selected outfielder Adam Jones, now with the Baltimore Orioles.

During his senior season at Burnsville, Carlson had a 0.53 ERA - two earned runs in 34 innings - with 16 walks and 53 strikeouts.

Noteworthy: Named the Minnesota Gatorate Player of the Year.
