Former Diamondbacks’ 1st-round pick Braden Shipley reveals why he re-signed with the Mariners on the MiLB deal…


Braden Shipley, a former 1st round pick of the Arizona Diamondbacks, has re-signed with the Seattle Mariners on a minor league contract.

Shipley was selected 15th overall out of the University of Nevada, Reno.

After spending his first couple of seasons in the minors, Shipley made his major league debut in 2016. During his rookie season, he started 11 games, recording a 5.27 ERA and ending with a 4-5 record.

Then, Shipley struggled to secure playing time in the majors, with his last appearance occurring in 2018.

Following a few years in triple-A with the Reno Aces, Shipley was acquired by the Cincinnati Reds in 2021. However, his challenges persisted, as he posted a 1-5 record with a 7.07 ERA in triple-A.

The upcoming season will mark Shipley’s second year as part of the Mariners’ minor league system.
