Drafted in the 8th round (252nd overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2008 (signed for $70,000)
Teammate Bobby LaFromboise was drafted in the 14th round last season, returned to school and went backward until Birmingham challenged him to get tougher. LaFromboise responded, pitched well in front of crosscheckers in an April matchup with Utah righty Stephen Fife, and finished the season by beating Fife in front of plenty of scouts at the Mountain West Conference tournament. He's at his best when he works down in the strike zone with his 88 mph fastball, which has good life, and gets groundballs with his slider. He lacks a strikeout pitch but keeps the ball in the ballpark, having yielded just six home runs in 170 innings the last two seasons.
