SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners signed three of their draft picks Thursday, including first-round selection Emerson Hancock.
Along with Hancock, the Mariners signed second-round pick Zach DeLoach and fifth-rounder Taylor Dollard.
Hancock, who was taken with the No. 6 overall pick, was one of the top collegiate pitchers in the country at Georgia. He was 8-3 with a 1.99 ERA during his sophomore season with the Bulldogs and made four starts during his abbreviated junior season.
DeLoach, an outfielder from Texas A&M, led the Cape Cod League in hitting last summer with a .353 batting average.
Dollard, a right-handed pitcher from Cal Poly, was 1-0 in four starts this season. As a sophomore last year, Dollard was 5-0 with a 2.89 ERA. Dollard never suffered a loss in 42 career appearance at Cal Poly.
