Update, 8:10pm: The Yankees drafted Arizona second baseman Trevor Hauver. Not unlike Wells, he’s a left handed hitter with power but also an uncertain defensive future.
Update, 9:50pm: Beck Way rounds things out for the Yanks at 129. He’s a six-foot-four junior college righty who’ll need to be signed away from LSU.
One pick down, two to go. Tonight, the Yankees will add two more names to the organization when the draft resumes at 5pm eastern. MLB Network and ESPN2 will have live coverage.
The Bombers have the 99th and 129th picks in the third and fourth rounds, respectively. I’ll update this post with more information once those picks are announced. Who will they be? Couldn’t tell ya. Especially now that a number of players I had brief write-ups on in our draft preview are off the board:
- Carson Tucker: Cleveland, 23rd
- Jared Shuster: Atlanta, 25th
- Bobby Miller: Los Angeles Dodgers, 29th
- Nick Loftin: Kansas City, 32nd
- Slade Cecconi: Arizona, 33rd
- Tanner Burns: Cleveland, 36th
J.T. Ginn is the only player remaining from my prospect capsules that hasn’t been drafted, but there’s just about no chance he makes it to the Yankees. In the off chance he does, I’m not so sure the Yankees would be able to fit him and Wells in their draft pool, though I’m certainly no expert.
More to come.
