Mariners 2022 Draft signings tracker

July 24th, 2022

Below is a list of every player drafted by the Mariners.

Each club has until 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT on Monday, Aug. 1, to come to terms with its Draft selections. If a player has exhausted his collegiate eligibility, he can sign at any time up until one week prior to the next year’s Draft.

Draft-and-follow picks -- high school and junior college players selected after the 10th round who attend a two-year college after the Draft -- can sign with their selecting teams for up to $250,000 up until a week prior to the following year’s Draft.

Total bonus pool: $7,258,200
MLB rank: 21

1 (21): Cole Young, SS, North Allegheny HS (PA) -- $3,300,000 (Pick value: $3,292,900)
Young will officially be in the fold when he puts pen to paper on Tuesday in Seattle, but the club has agreed to terms with the left-handed-hitting prep star on a well-over-slot contract.

2 (58): Tyler Locklear, 3B, VCU -- $1,276,500 (Pick value: $1,276,500)
The slugging corner infielder hit .402/.542/.799 (1.342 OPS) with 20 homers in 62 games this past spring. He's drawn early comparisons to Mets slugger and two-time Home Run Derby champion Pete Alonso.

CB-B (74): Walter Ford, RHP, Pace HS (Fla.) -- $1,250,000 (Pick value: $887,400)
An early fan favorite on social media, Ford opted to sign with Seattle over a commitment to Alabama. As such, the club gave him more than the slot value for his pick. The super competitive righty is 6-foot-3, 198 pounds and already touches 97 mph.

4 (126): Ashton Izzi, RHP, Oswego East HS (IL) -- $1,100,000 million (Pick value: $474,900)
As expected, the Mariners went way over slot value to sign the highly projectable high school arm, who has a commitment to Wichita State. At 6-foot-3 and 165 pounds, he has a fastball that tops out at 97 mph, and he complements it with a low-80s slider and changeup that's shown promise.

5 (156): Reid VanScoter, LHP, Costal Carolina -- $20,000 (Pick value: $353,900)
The Sun Belt Pitcher of the Year this past season as a redshirt senior was one of many Mariners picks that agreed for well under slot value, which allowed them to allocate more money to their high school selections.

6 (186): Josh Hood, SS, NC State -- $250,000 (Pick value: $272,800)

7 (216): Hogan Windish, 2B, UNC Greensboro -- $20,000 (Pick value: $213,900)

8 (246): Tatem Levins, C, Pittsburgh -- $50,000 (Pick value: $175,600)

9 (276): Tyler Gough, RHP, JSerra Catholic HS (Calif.) -- $275,000 (Pick value: $159,400)
Gough was another expected over-slot sign, given that he is also a prep arm with a commitment to Oregon State. He wowed at the MLB Combine last month and had a very productive meeting with Mariners director of amateur scouting Scott Hunter, which in part led to the match.

10 (306): Bill Knight, OF, Mercer -- $50,000 (Pick value: $150,900)

11 (336): Marcelo Perez, RHP, TCU -- $125,000

12 (366): Troy Tayler, RHP, University of California- Irvine -- $125,000

13 (396): Darren Bowen, RHP, UNC Pembroke -- $125,000

14 (426): Tyler Cleveland, RHP, Central Arkansas -- $125,000

15 (456) Blake Rambusch, 3B, Auburn -- $125,000

16 (486): Jacob McNairy, RHP, Alabama
Has not agreed to terms

17 (516): Stefan Raeth, RHP, U Washington -- $50,000

18 (546): Brandon Schaeffer, LHP, North Carolina -- $100,000

19 (576): Curtis Washington Jr., OF, Purdue -- $50,000

20 (60r): Nick Zona, 2B, James Madison U (NY) -- $5,000

How bonus pools and pick values work

Each choice in the first 10 rounds comes with an assigned value, with the total for a club's selections equaling what it can spend in those rounds without incurring a penalty. If a player taken in the top 10 rounds doesn't sign, his pick's value gets subtracted from his team's pool. Clubs near the top of the Draft often spend less than the assigned value for those choices and use the savings to offer more money to later selections.

Teams that exceed their bonus pool face a penalty. Clubs that outspend their allotment by 0-5 percent pay a 75 percent tax on the overage. At higher thresholds, clubs lose future picks: a first-rounder and a 75 percent tax for surpassing their pool by more than 5 and up to 10 percent; a first- and a second-rounder and a 100 percent tax for more than 10 and up to 15 percent; and two first-rounders and a 100 percent tax for more than 15 percent.
