Player Outlook
The Mariners snagged three seven-figure prep hitters in the first 30 picks of the 2023 MLB Draft, and Colt Emerson got the biggest bonus ($3.8 million) and was first off the board at No. 22 overall. A lefty-hitting shortstop, Emerson has already gained good weight since the end of his high school season, up to 6-foot-2 and around 200 pounds. He slashed .374/.496/.550 with two home runs, 10 doubles and eight steals on eight attempts in 24 games across the Arizona Complex League and the Cal League. Emerson has been billed as hit-over-power, and indeed, he had a 17.5 K% and a 14.9 BB% in his pro debut, so the hit tool easily projects as plus. Defensively, he can play shortstop but may move to third base as needed. He isn't a plus runner, but has excellent instincts and gets the most out of his physical tools. Emerson could reach the majors sometime in 2025.

  • Mariners' Colt Emerson: Dealing with foot fracture

    Emerson was diagnosed with a small fracture in his foot Tuesday and will wear a protective boot for two weeks, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Emerson will likely be sidelined for about a month, as he'll require some time to get back up to speed after the boot is removed. The 18-year-old is one of Seattle's top prospects and has an .855 OPS in 93 plate appearances at Single-A Modesto this year.

  • Mariners' Colt Emerson: Walk machine for Modesto

    Emerson has a .295/.457/.443 slash line with two home runs, one stolen base, 12 strikeouts and 16 walks in 16 games for Single-A Modesto. Emerson has at least two walks in five straight games while striking out twice over that stretch. He is in complete control at the plate and is hitting the ball hard for his age (31.3 Hard%), but his 57.1 percent groundball rate is capping his power output early this season.
