Everett AquaSox slugger Zach DeLoach has been promoted to the Double-A Arkansas Travelers, according to a tweet Monday from the Seattle Mariners’ player development Twitter account.
DeLoach, a 2020 second-round MLB draft pick out of Texas A&M University, batted .313 with nine home runs, two triples and 23 doubles in 58 games with the AquaSox this season.
The 22-year-old left-handed-hitting outfielder ranks second in the High-A West in batting average and fourth in slugging percentage (.530). He’s also tied for second in the league in extra-base hits (34).
DeLoach, the High-A West player of the month for June, is riding an eight-game hitting streak and has recorded at least one hit in 30 of his last 33 games. Since the start of June, he is batting .357 with five homers, one triple and 18 doubles in 35 games.
DeLoach is ranked by MLB.com as the No. 11 prospect in the Mariners’ organization.
DeLoach is the third AquaSox player in the last week to be promoted to Double-A. Third baseman Austin Shenton and pitcher Matt Brash also got called up from Everett to Arkansas.
