Yankees 2012 28th round draft pick: D.J. Stewart


With their 28th round pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Demetrius Stewart, a 6-foot, 215-pound outfielder out of The Bolles High School in Florida.

Another sign-ability guy, the 18-year-old is a two-sport player who also plays football. He’s got a running back’s frame which gives him plenty of power. He’s also got a strong, accurate arm and is a decent runner for his size. It sounds like his swing is pretty long, but he’s got quickness so it shouldn’t be anything a professional hitting coach can’t fix.

Breaking his commitment to Florida State might not be easy.
