Gilbert was promoted from Low-A West Virginia to High-A Modesto on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Gilbert, the 14th overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft, earned the promotion after dominating at Low-A, posting a 1.83 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 30:5 K:BB through four starts (19.2 innings) with West Virginia. The soon-to-be 22-year-old will look to keep things rolling as he faces a tougher challenge with Modesto.
Gilbert (illness) is starting for Low-A West Virginia on Thursday, Jason Churchill of Prospect Insider reports.
Gilbert will get the ball on Opening Day for the Power. The 21-year-old was drafted by the Mariners with the 14th pick in the 2018 first-year plater draft, though an illness kept him from making his professional debut until this season.
Gilbert, the 14th overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft, has been shut down for the remainder of the season due to a bout of mononucleosis, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The Mariners' top pick wasn't slated to see much action after putting in a heavy workload for Stetson University, but a mononucleosis diagnosis shortly after arriving in Low-A Everett has ended his campaign before it ever got started. General manager Jerry Dipoto relayed that Gilbert is recovering in Orlando after spending time in the hospital, and that he expects the 21-year-old to be ready to go for the organization's high performance camp in September.
