Spokane, WASH. - The Texas Rangers announced on Wednesday that 2017 first round pick Chris Seise will be promoted to the Spokane Indians. Seise arrived in Spokane on Wednesday afternoon and is expected to play in this week's series against the Eugene Emeralds.

After being selected by the Rangers in June, Seise hit .336 in 27 games in the Arizona League. The 18-year-old smacked 11 extra base hits, including three home runs. He also drove in 27 runs while scoring 23 runs in the AZL.

The shortstop was selected 29th overall by the Rangers in the 2017 MLB Draft. Seise was seen as a top prospect in the year's draft because of his arm, speed, and defensive consistency. The 6'2" infielder was one of two first round selections for Texas, along with the 26th overall pick and fellow high school prospect Bubba Thompson.

Seise's assignment to Spokane also provides a reunion with his former high school teammate Kole Enright. The two played on the same side of the infield for West Orange High School during the 2016 season when Enright was a senior and Seise was a junior. Along with pitcher Cole Ragans, Seise now gives the Indians two first round picks on their roster.  

You can see Seise make his debut in game one of Spokane's five-game series with the Eugene Emeralds. Click here to get your tickets for Thursday's game.
