Player Profile: Jabari Blash

I have two cards of Jabari Blash. This one is from 2012 Bowman Platinum Prospects.

Playing career: Outfielder Jabari Blash was the Mariners’ eighth round draft pick in 2010, and has quickly moved through their system, showing impressive power. In five seasons he is hitting .255 with 76 HR and 257 RBI.

Where he is now: He is having an excellent first AAA season power-wise at Tacoma, including a three home run game against El Paso on June 3. In 44 games he is hitting .212 but with 12 HR and 37 RBI.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Jabari B, between Jabari Bird, who plays basketball at the University of California, and Jabari Bars, a dessert made by NBA prospect Jabari Parker. There do not appear to be any other prominent Jabari Blashes.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Chadd Blasko.
