Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Zack Littell was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 11th round of the 2013 amateur draft. He spent his first four professional seasons in the Mariners' organization, his best year coming in 2016 when he was a combined 13-6, 2.66 between the Clinton LumberKings and the Bakersfield Blaze. On November 18, 2016, he was traded to the New York Yankees in return for P James Pazos.

His 2017 season was absolutely outstanding, as he finished with a record of 19-1, 2.12 while pitching for three different teams. He started off by going 9-1, 1.77 in 13 games for the Tampa Yankees. He then was promoted to the Trenton Thunder of the AA Eastern League, where he went 5-0, 2.05 in 7 games.
