Werman Joins Taylor on Mariners' Minor League Roster

After spending the past two college baseball seasons as Virginia's double-play combination, Chris Taylor and Keith Werman are teammates again in the Seattle Mariners' farm system.

According to the team's website, Werman has been added to the roster of the Everett Aquasox, the Mariners' Class-A team. One of his new teammates with the Aquasox is Taylor, who has been playing with Everett since signing with the Mariners.

Werman, who signed with Seattle after going undrafted last month, had been playing for the Mariners' rookie ball team in Arizona before his promotion. In 14 games, the second baseman hit .297 with two RBI and five runs scored.

Taylor was the Mariners' fifth round pick in last month's draft. Entering Tuesday night, the shortstop was hitting .315 in 31 games with the Aquasox, with a pair of homers and 17 RBI. He also led the team in runs (25), doubles (10), and walks (20).
