Burnett hoping to impress Seattle
“They’re going to follow me and see what I do this summer and then make an offer from there,” Burnett told The Ruston Daily Leader this past weekend, less than 24 hours after being selected in the draft. “They want to see how I perform after the arm injury and see how I perform.”
Burnett will start hurling this week for Kilgore in the Texas-Louisiana Collegiate League. The Mariners will be maintaining a close watch on the hard-throwing east Texas native (Carthage) who went winless in four decisions and had an 8.41 earned run average this spring for the Bulldogs.
