German pitcher signs with Mariners

Daniel Thieben, an 18-year-old German right-hander, has become the latest international prospect to sign with the Mariners, the club confirmed Thursday.

Thieben is working out at a baseball academy in Regesburg, Germany, and is expected to report to the Mariners Minor League camp in Peoria, Ariz., in March.

Thieben has pitched for the German National Team and World Cup team. Here’s some additional background on baseball-reference.com.

Chalk this up as another signing for Bob Engle, the Mariners vice president of international operation. Engle, who helped Seattle land Felix Hernandez and Michael Pineda, was one of three men selected as Major League Scouts of the Year this week.
