Another Former Turk will get a Spring Training Look

Another former Turk will get a Spring Training look.  2010 Turk, RHP Stephen Kohlscheen (Auburn) has been assigned to the San Diego Padres Spring Training Camp.

The Mariners drafted Stephen out of Auburn (and right off the Turks roster in 2010).   Kohlscheen was the second of four Turks right-handers Seattle has selected since 2009.  Chris Sorce (Free Agent), Kohlscheen, Emilio Pagan and Trey Cochrane-Gill have all impressed Seattle.
Kohlscheen, The 6′ 6″ reliever is a long shot to make the team but the way he has retired right-hand hitters up through the AAA level has earned him a shot.   Last season Stephen had a nearly 6 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio in the Seattle Mariners organization.  The Mariners traded him to the Padres in the off-season and now he can meet the new Padre bosses.  Best of luck to Stephen as he makes his pitch to get to the major leagues.
