Yankees 2010 20th Round Draft Pick: Mike Ferraro


Name: Mike Ferraro
POS: LF
Ht: 6′2″
Wt: 200
B/T: L/L
DOB: 5-31-88
School level: JR

In the 20th round the Yankees took a left handed outfielder from the University of San Diego named Mike Ferraro. I like this pick a lot because he’s coming off what has easily been the best year of his college career after dealing with nagging injuries the first couple of years. So in a way he’s a late bloomer and it kept him from going in higher rounds. Hopefully this is an easy sign because I would love to get a good look at him in Staten Island.

Here is a brief writeup from Baseball America:

Six-foot-2, 200-pound Ferraro is a lefty-hitting outfielder with an ideal frame, excellent speed and a strong arm. His bat (.342/.409/.467) came to life this year after nagging physical problems the past three seasons, including his time at Orange Coast JC.
