Former Siena product Dan Paolini is moving up the ranks thanks mostly to the power he flashed while playing for the Saints.

The 10th round draft pick of the Seattle Mariners, Paolini, has been promoted to double AA ball, with Jackson.

Paolini, in just 3 years with Siena, set the record for home runs for a MAAC player, this despite playing only 3 years with the school. Paolini slammed 56 long flies while with the Saints and that record still holds in the MAAC. He also hit .380 in his college career. Now Paolini is showing his power in the minor leagues.

Paolini leads the entire Mariners minor league players in home runs this season with 18. he also leads in runs batted in with 69. he is 3rd in the mariners farm system in runs scored and walks. This for a ball club, that being Seattle that is desperate for more run production as are many teams in the big leagues right now.

Paolini was named an Honorable Mention  All American by college baseball after he had a huge season as a junior, and was also a Louisville Slugger Freshman All American in 2009.
