Former Mets top prospect Jarred Kelenic has been sent down to the Seattle Mariners' Triple-A affiliate.

Kelenic is 8-for-83 (.096) with 26 strikeouts in 23 games with the Mariners. He got three hits in his second career game, so in his last 24 games, he is slashing .067/.167/.107, and is hitless in his last 39 at-bats.

Kelenic, along with RHP Justin Dunn, were traded to the Mariners in December 2018 for Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano.

Cano is currently serving a year-long suspension from PEDs, but Diaz has regained his elite status, pitching to a 2.39 ERA and a 14.9 K/9 dating back to last season.

Kelenic is MLB Pipeline's fourth-best prospect in all of baseball.
