After selecting a catcher who plays first base, the Seattle Mariners picked a catcher who now pitches with their third selection in the amateur draft: Carter Capps.
Capps was a catcher in high school, but went to the mound in college and now throws a live fastball that tops out at 96 mph with movement. As a starting pitcher for Mt. Olive College this season, Capps went 14-1 with a 1.75 ERA with two saves in five relief appearances.
A 6-foot-5 right-hander, Capps' arm is not in question, but he's a raw talent without secondary pitches he can throw for strikes.
