Name: Casey Stevenson
School level: SR
With their 25th pick in the draft the Yankees selected a big, at least for a second baseman, college student out of UC Irvine named Casey Stevenson. He was originally drafted by the Brewers in the 38th round of the 2009 amateur draft, but failed to sign.
Baseball America didn’t have anything on him, but MLB.com had this:
The 6-foot-3 senior batted .324 with four home runs and 41 RBIs for an Anteaters team that advanced to the NCAA Regionals.
UC Irvine had this about him in their press release after the draft:
Casey Stevenson (Saugus/College of the Canyons) was a 25th-round pick by the New York Yankees. Stevenson, who led UCI in runs scored with 63, was an all-conference honorable mention after hitting .324 and sitting second on the team with 77 hits and third with 41 RBI. The second baseman was solid in the postseason for the third straight year, hitting .389 with seven hits and three RBI to earn a spot on the all-regional team.
He’s already signed and expects to start in Staten Island.
