SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma Baptist University baseball player Daniel Howell has signed with the Seattle Mariners.
The school in Shawnee announced the signing Thursday and says Howell was assigned to the rookie league Arizona League Mariners.
Howell is the son of former major leaguer Roy Howell. He was injured most of the 2013 season -- but hit .316 with five home runs and 33 RBI in 37 games for the Bison in 2012.
Daniel Howell is a 6-4, 235-pound first baseman from San Luis Obispo, Calif.
