After the Seattle Mariners made him their 22nd-round pick in the MLB draft on June 8, Carter High School pitcher Stephen Landazuri reached an agreement with the organization Thursday night. The right-hander received a $95,000 signing bonus.
Landazuri, a first-team All-Valley selection, was drafted 672nd overall, one selection before Los Osos catcher Jake Hernandez, who opted not to sign with the Detroit Tigers, rather utilize his scholarship to USC. Landazuri posted a 3-7 record and 3.05 ERA his senior season for a Carter team that went 5-18. He struck out 86 batters in 62 innings and held opponents to a .241 batting average. He also batted .403 with three home runs and 18 RBIs.
