Yankees 2012 15th round draft pick: Dayton Dawe


With their 15th pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Dayton Dawe, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound, Canadian right handed pitcher from A.B. Lucas secondary school.

The 18-year-old with a 93 mph fastball said learned to pitch thanks to former Yankee Paul Quantrill.¬†As a result he’s already has pretty solid mechanics. He uses both a four seam and two seam fastball as well as a curveball and a developing changeup. He is committed to the University of Maine, but sounds eager to sign with the Yankees.

He is currently pitching for the Canadian junior team.
