Aumont on the way up...

Phillippe Aumont has been included in MLB.com's Top 50 minor-league prospects.

The big right-hander from Gatineau, who's entering his second season in the Seattle Mariners organization, is listed at No. 33.
"A sore elbow slowed him down in the second half, but it's not a big cause for concern. He throws his fastball, which has hard sink and is tough to pick up, up to 95 mph, with room for more. The breaking ball (curve) has a chance to be plus pitch, but his changeup is his third pitch and needs to be improved. He has pretty good command, especially for his age, and uses his size well for mound presence."
