David Colvin was one of the top Division III pitchers in the country when he competed for Pomona-Pitzer, graduating in 2011. Now he’s trying to chart a path at the professional level.
Colvin, 24, was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the 27th round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft.
Now he’s coming out of the bullpen for the High Desert Mavericks. He has thrown 28 and two-third innings and given up 31 hits, seven walks and 10 earned runs with 30 strikeouts. He has a 2-0 record and an ERA of 3.14. Those are legitimate stats for playing in such a hitter-friendly venue.
He went two innings and got the win in a 7-6 11-inning win over \Lake Elsinore on Monday.
Colvin spent the 2012 season with the Mariners Low-A team in Clinton (Iowa) of the Midwest League where he went 5-3, with a 3.15 ERA in 32 appearances.
