Name: Mike Gipson
School level: JR
In the 31st round the Yankees took another college pitcher and one they are familiar with from Legends, Mike Gipson. They’ve already signed him so those questions are behind us. He’s not the biggest guy and he’s got a fastball, curveball, and a circle-change.
Here is what Baseball America said about him:
Florida Atlantic was competing for a regional bid despite an injury that deprived it of closer Glen Troyanowski, who is out until July after labrum surgery. Despite his loss, the team could have a single-digit pick in righthander Mike Gipson, the Owls’ Friday starter who competes with a fringe-average curveball and average fastball. He commands both pitches well and had his moments in the Cape Cod League last summer, striking out 50 in 39 innings. His changeup needs to develop and his curve needs to be tighter for his pitchability profile to play at higher levels.
