The pitchers and catchers of the Cape League can breathe a sigh of relief.
Last Wednesday, the Seattle Mariners signed Aaron Dracut, a speedy center fielder with a knack for stealing bases, to a professional contract. He arrived in Pulaski, Va., on Monday to join the Pulaski Mariners of the Appalachian League.
“I knew it was a possibility because my coach had been talking to me about it,” Barbosa said. “But definitely, the offer was surprising. I called a bunch of people and asked their opinions and tried to make my own decision. It was tough, but I made the right decision.”
Last year, he started all 57 games in right field for Northeastern University and stole 26 bases.
