Former Gonzaga pitcher Tyler Olson will begin his professional career with the Everett AquaSox.
Olson, drafted in the seventh round of the 2013 MLB first-year player draft by the Seattle Mariners, has been assigned to short-season Class A Everett. The University High School graduate will be in Spokane with the AquaSox to open the season against the Indians this Friday-Sunday.
Olson went 9-4 with a 2.38 ERA this year with the Bulldogs and was named West Coast Conference Pitcher of the Year. He held a 19-inning scoreless streak during April.
