Yankees 2012 36th round draft pick: Dalton Smith 7


With their 36th round pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Dalton Smith, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound catcher out of University City High School in Califorinia.

Still 17-years-old for a little while, Smith is the second youngest player drafted by the Yankees so far. He not only caught in high school, but he also played third base and pitched. His biggest assets are his power bat and projectability.
