by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com (2/27/2012) Seattle third base prospect Vinnie Catricala impressed during an instrasquad game on Monday, reports MLB.com. With the Mariners expected to take a long look at the prospect, Catricala slugged a home run and a double in his two at-bats. "Sure, it's an intrasquad game and there's not that many people out there," the 6-foot-3, 220-pounder from the University of Hawaii said on Monday. "But you're still out there playing, and it's still a game atmosphere at full speed and everything."
