Yankee Draft Profiles Rounds 1-21

We here are Bronx Baseball Daily are running through the draft picks, all 50 players that the Yankees drafted will be profiled. So far we have covered draft picks from rounds 1-21.

SS Cito Culver is a 17-year-old hit and play defense and could one day take over shortstop after Derek Jeter. CF Angelo Gumbs is an amazing athlete and possible starter in center field one day. 3B Rob Segedin could be the best bat in the group, but comes with signability issues. CF Kevin Jordan is the son of former major leaguer Brian Jordan and another signability case. LHP Evan Rutckyj is a big Canadian lefty who throws in the mid-90’s. RHP Kevin Jacob is a Scott Boras client and throws in the mid to upper-90’s.
