Mariners open Day 3 by taking HS pitcher Littell

In the 11th round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft on Saturday, the Mariners selected Zack Littell, a right-handed pitcher from Eastern Alamance High School in North Carolina.

The 6-foot-3 hurler has a good fastball, which sits in the mid 80s and can top out in the low 90s. He complements it with a curveball and a changeup.

Littell has an aggressive demeanor on the mound and will go right after hitters. He led his high school team to its league baseball championship, often pitching complete games in addition to batting. The talented prep star also competed in the PowerAde State Games of North Carolina.
