One question that has been floating around the Yankee blogosphere over the last 12 hours is the following, voiced by MJ over at Was Watching:
Why would you draft a player that you’re taking a flier on, let him pitch in the Cape Cod league and watch him dominate and then not sign him? [...]
Sorry for my recent absence. Things have been hectic over the last week or so, and will likely remain so until Friday. However, today’s signing deadline news is pretty important, so here is what has happened so far.
Slade Heathcott, the Yankees’ first round pick, signed for 2.2 million, almost double the slot recommendation for [...]
Draft week is always my favorite week of the year. I picked this week to go camping before realizing what I was interfering with. After a week of monitoring the draft on my tiny little cell phone, I’ve got a lot to get out.
Slade Healthcott was a pick from confidence. They could very easily [...]
Black has one of the best arms among college starters this year, but his track [...]
The Yankees selected UNC RHP Adam Warren with their fourth rounder. Here is what I could dig up on him:
UNC senior Adam Warren’s postseason success has been hard for scouts to overlook — six earned runs in 22 1/3 innings, with 23 strikeouts against just two walks. But the evidence is not just [...]
The first two rounds (plus the sandwich round) were very interesting to follow, as this was thought to be a very difficult draft to predict, due to the multitude of players demanding overslot bonuses. As Aaron Crow, Grant Green, Kyle Gibson, and Matt Purke all went off the board before the Yankees were going to [...]
Tune in at 11:30 for a reaction piece from our very own Eric Schultz. Until then, here is a roundup of the reactions to the Yankee selections last night. From Baseball Prospectus:
Kevin Goldstein (5:36:43 PM PT): Yankfan21 (Work – still…): So, Heathcott? With Scheppers and Rex Brothers on the board, I am completely [...]
John Murphy, a catcher from Pendleton High School in Florida. This spring, Murphy hit a ridiculous .627 with 11 home runs and 66 RBI’s for a nationally ranked team against strong Florida competition. While playing on the Florida Bombers in the summer, he broke records held in the past by Eric Hosmer, Jemile Weeks, and [...]
Astérix et la surprise de César move Martin and Lewis buy Slade Heathcott, a 2-way player from Texas High school in Texarkana who will probably be an outfielder in the Yankee system. Heathcott is 6’1″ 196 with an athletic build, who was also a standout [...]
From Keith Law:
Price tags on players in this draft continue to rise, with over 90 player saying they will only sign for first-round money.
Essentially, what this means is that some of the top prospects may drop much further than expected, as teams will attempt to identify the most signable of those 90 [...]
