Mariners’ minor-league report for Wednesday: Carraway trying to make it a “Big Four”

Here is today’s Mariners’ minor-league report.

You can’t help but be impressed with Andrew Carraway, the 25-year-old right-hander who is making his presence felt at Jackson, despite being in the same rotation with Danny Hultzen, James Paxton and Taijuan Walker.

Carraway, who was a teammate with Hultzen for one year at the University of Virginia (and a 12th-round draft pick in June of 2009), allowed just two hits in seven innings in a 5-1 win over Tennessee on Tuesday night. Carraway retired 20 straight batters from the first to the seventh innings and is now 2-0 with a 0.69 in two starts this year (13 innings, four hits, 1 earned run, 10 strikeouts, 1 walk). Those are the kind of numbers that will get you noticed.

I’ll have more details tomorrow. but Jackson played a day game today and ran their reccord to 6-1 with a 2-1 win over Tennessee. Paxton started and went 4 2/3 innings, giving up four hits, one earned run and one walk,with seven strikeouts, before apparently reaching his pitch count. Paxton has a 17 to 1 strikeout-to-walk ratio in two starts over 10 1/3 innings. Not too shabby.

Speaking of the University of Virginia (I think we were), first baseman Steven Proscia, who played with Carraway in 2009 and Hultzen from 2009-11 with the Cavaliers, is off to a .478 (11-for-23) start for High Desert. He was a seventh-round draft pick last June.
