Mountlake Terrace High School alumni Aaron Brooks, drafted and signed by the Seattle Mariners’ organization earlier this month, has been assigned to the Mariners’ team of the Arizona Rookie League. The AZL Mariners began play this week.
Shortly after being drafted by the Mariners, Brooks said he was hoping to be a part of this summer’s Everett Aquasox squad.
After three games the AZL Mariners are 1-2. Brooks has yet to see any action in the first three games of the summer season.
The AZL Mariners play their home games at Peoria Sports Complex, the same site as the Seattle Mariners’ spring training each year. The team will play 56 games this season, with games scheduled through Aug. 31.
