Mariners come to terms with Hultzen

The Seattle Mariners came to terms with handed pitcher Danny Hultzen, the second overall pick in this year's draft.

The 21-year-old lefty went 12-3 with a 1.37 ERA in 18 starts during his junior season for the University of Virginia. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder limited opponents to a .184 average, while fanning 165 batters and walking only 23 in 118 innings.

"Danny is a hard-throwing left-hand pitcher with tremendous athletic ability," Mariners director of amateur scouting Tom McNamara said. "We are excited to welcome him to the Mariners organization and watch him work his way towards being part of our Major League rotation in the near future."

Hultzen was 32-5 with a 2.08 ERA in 51 games -- 50 starts -- in his collegiate career.
