Yankees 2012 27th round draft pick: Danny Oh

With their 27th round pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Daniel Oh, a 6-foot, 190-pound outfielder out of UC Berkeley.

Oh, a 22-year-old college senior, had a nice bounce back season this year after a rough junior campaign. Last season his average dropped to .209 over 32 games, but in 2012 he improved to hit .344/.432/.416 with one home run and five stolen bases in 43 games.

His best tool is his hit tool, but he’s said to have a good arm and plays solid defense. He’s not exceptionally fast and doesn’t hit for a ton of power, but he will show flashes of pop. His coach called his swing, “effortless” because of how smooth it is.
