Here’s a nice story on Moises Hernandez by the Jackson Sun’s Josh Lemons.
Lefty Tyler Pike has been promoted out of the pitching hell that is the Cal League to Jackson. OF Julio Morban and RHP David Colvin have been activated from the DL as well.
Pike was 2-4, with a 5.72 ERA (39ER/61.1) and 57 strikeouts for High Desert. Pike was the California League Pitcher of the Week for his performance May 26-June 1 and currently ranks 4th in the Mariners organization in strikeouts. In 2013, Pike was a midseason and postseason Midwest League All-Star while with Low-A Clinton. He was Seattle’s supplemental 3rd round draft pick (126th overall) in the 2012 draft out of Winter Haven HS (FL). Pike was rated in the preseason by SeattleClubhouse.com as the No. 5 overall prospect for the Mariners.
