Prospect watch

Andrew Kittredge

Relief pitcher, Class A High Desert

Signed as a non-drafted free agent in 2011 out of the University of Washington.

It’s not easy to pitch in the hitter-friendly Cal League, but the Spokane native and Ferris High grad has had success. He is 6-1 with a bloated 4.52 ERA, but Kittredge is averaging 12.92 strikeouts per nine innings. In 34 relief appearances, he has struck out 100 in 762/3 innings pitched. It ranks him third among all Mariners minor-league pitchers in strikeouts. The Mariners drafted him in 2008 out of high school in the 45th round, but he chose not to sign and went to Washington. He pitched for the Huskies for two seasons and was expected to be the team’s ace in 2011. But he was ruled academically ineligible before his junior season, so he signed with the Mariners.

Ex-Mariner of the week

R.A. Dickey

Pitcher, Toronto Blue Jays

People sometimes forget Dickey was a Mariner for a season. He was a Rule 5 selection during the 2008 baseball winter meetings and made 32 appearances, including 14 starts for a hapless Mariners team that lost 101 games. Dickey posted a 5-8 record that season with a 5.21 ERA. He left as a free agent. Four years later, he won the NL Cy Young for the New York Mets, going 20-6 with a 2.73 ERA. He signed a 5-year $37.5 million after that season. In his second year with the Blue Jays, he is 9-11 with a 3.99 ERA. He will pitch on Wednesday at Safeco Field.
