Some Debut Updates

-Los Angeles Angels’ 4th round pick, second baseman Wes Hatton from Norco HS (CA), high school teammate of Matt Hobgood, recently signed a contract and debuted last night in the AZL, going 1-4 with a single, walk, 2 strikeouts, and a pair of runs scored.

-Seattle Mariners’ 3rd rounder, UNC second baseman Kyle Seager, recently signed as well, and he’s been assigned to the AZL Mariners. His debut is expected shortly.

-The Mariners’ 33rd overall pick, Steve Baron, who I mentioned signed a few days ago, debuted last night with Pulaski in the Appy League, going 0-for-3 with a walk and strikeout, driving in a run and scoring twice.

-Twins’ supplemental first rounder Matt Bashore of Indiana, signed recently, and he’s set to debut with Elizabethton in the Appy League. It will be interesting to see which of the Indiana arms, Eric Arnett or Bashore, has a better pro debut.

-Nationals’ 9th rounder Paul Applebee of UC Riverside signed since I did their writeup, and he debuted Wednesday night in the GCL. He allowed 4 runs on 7 hits in just 1.2 innings, walking and striking out none. Not too encouraging.

-Marlins’ 6th rounder Dustin Dickerson of Baylor finally signed and debuted last night. He went 2-4 with a pair of singles, an RBI, and a run scored with Jamestown in the NYPL.

-The Orioles also had someone sign and debut since my writeup, as Jake Cowan, their 10th round pick, pitched an inning for Aberdeen in the NYPL, allowing an unearned run, walking 2 and striking out 3.

-Keeping with the NYPL theme, the Yankees’ 7th round pick, Seton Hall’s Sean Black, debuted on Wednesday night, throwing 5 shutout innings, allowing 3 hits and a walk, striking out one.

-Heading to the Northwest League, the Rockies’ 3rd round pick, first baseman Ben Paulsen of Clemson, debuted Wednesday, and he’s 2-7 with a double and 4 strikeouts in 2 games with Tri-City.

-Just to fill in a gap, the Mariners signed their 9th round pick, Missouri catcher Trevor Coleman, since I wrote their review, and he’s 0-for-10 so far with Everett in the Northwest League.

-The Angels have signed one of their supplemental round picks, Oklahoma’s Garrett Richards, and he’s been assigned to Orem in the Pioneer League. His debut will come shortly.

-Same goes for the Angels’ 8th rounder, catcher Carlos Ramirez from Arizona State. He should make his Orem debut shortly.

-This isn’t a debut, but the Dodgers’ 4th round pick, outfielder Angelo Songco from Loyola Marymount, hit his way out of the Pioneer League in just 73 at-bats, and he’s moved up to the Midwest League, where he’s 1-for-9 with Great Lakes.

-He’s now four games in, but the Rockies’ 2nd round pick, Nolan Arenado from El Toro HS (CA), is 3-for-15 with Casper in the Pioneer League.

-The Mariners have been really aggressive in placing their 6th round pick, Baylor’s Shaven Hansen, in the Midwest League to start his pro career. He debuted last night, going 1-for-3 with a double and a pair of strikeouts.
