Team Italy's John Andreoli on the fast track to MLB

May 02, 2018 300

After signing a minor league contract with the Seattle Mariners in January and playing in 19 Cactus League games during 2018 Spring Training in Arizona, Team Italy outfielder John Andreoli was assigned to Triple-A affiliate Tacoma Rainiers. Starting the season as the team's leadoff hitter, John Andreoli has since flourished by leading the squad in RBI (14), slugging percentage (.596), stolen bases (2), and triples (1) as well as ranking second in batting average (.346), hits (18), doubles (5), homers (2), runs (13) and total bases (31).

Proud Italian American John Andreoli was on an express train to MLB before a dislocated finger brought his an eight-game hitting streak--during which time he went 14-for-35 with 15 RBI--to a screeching halt that derailed him onto the 7-day disabled list effective April 22, 2018.
