2012 MLB Mock Draft: Mariners Select SS Carlos Correa In First Round

The 2012 MLB Draft begins with its first round on Monday and the Seattle Mariners are the proud holders of the No. 3 overall pick. The Mariners have a remarkable surplus of young pitching in their system, so it is likely that they will attempt to focus on offense with a first round pick of a position player.

In the latest mock draft at Minor League Ball, John Sickels believes that Seattle will target a high school shortstop with their first pick. Here's his take:

3) Seattle Mariners: Carlos Correa, SS, Puerto Rico HS: He's been utterly spectacular in recent workouts, and I don't think we'll see another Hultzenish surprise choice.

We will have to stand by and see whether this prediction comes true. Can the Mariners lock down a potential franchise shortstop and key component of their future offense on Monday? Only time will tell.
