Yankees 2012 MLB draft results: prospect profiles on every player

It took most of three full days, but I have finally written up something on each of the Yankees 41 draft picks. It’s not always a lot of information. I try to find what I can on each player and pass something along. Try not to formulate opinions based entirely on these write ups as there is a lot of context missing and sometimes what I’ve written is based on just a paragraph or two. It does give you an idea of who the Yankees drafted though so I think they are good reads.

It’s way too early to grade the draft, but I’ll give my thoughts on it and highlight a few players again tomorrow. I will say it’s a solid draft and depending on who signs and who doesn’t there could be a few nice gems. Also check back for updates on who has and who hasn’t signed yet.
