10th Round, 314th Overall: Tyler Webb, LHP, South Carolina, 6-foot-6, 225-pounds, Pick Value: $135,300
Extremely brief Baseball America report: Webb emerged as a key lefty out of the pen last year, appearing in 39 games and showing poise in pressure situations. His fastball and curveball are quality pitches.
MY TAKE: Here’s another college senior. A lefty reliever, Webb is coming off Tommy John Surgery and had a 1.36 ERA with 60 strikeouts and 12 walks in 39.2 innings this season. Despite all of the K’s, he is a soft tosser. The Yankees have done a good job drafting and producing relievers in recent years so if they are going to draft college seniors with picks 6-10 it can’t hurt to grab a few relievers that could end up helping out.
