Pac-12 Mariners


003 I’ve often wondered how many Pac-12 guys have come through the Emerald City?  Well, I finally sat down and did some research.

Now I’m sure the Mariners have had their fair share of Pac-12 draft picks due to proximity, familiarity, a whim, and of course, overall talent. I haven’t mustered the time or energy just yet to find out how many TOTAL Pac-12 players the Mariners have “selected” in drafts, but I did do some research on how many Pac-12 players have actually played for the team during its history.

Here’s what I have come up with and I hope you enjoy! (Players are listed alphabetically followed by their MLB playing years)
