With their 31st round pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Kevin Johnson, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound right handed pitcher from the University of Illinois. The 21-year-old Johnson was the ace of Illinois staff this season. He had a 3.97 ERA with 43 strikeouts and 27 walks in 88.1 innings. It sounds like Johnson ...
With their 18th round pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Brady Lail, a 6-foot-2, 170-pound right handed pitcher out of Bingham High School in Utah. Lail is young, just 18-years-old, and is quite projectable. His fastball sits in the upper 80's, topping out at 91 mph now, but once he fills ...
With their 30th round pick in the 2012 First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Raphael Rhymes, a 6-foot, 190-pound outfielder out of LSU. This 22-year-old, SEC Player of the Year, led the nation in hitting with a .452/.510/.557 line to go with four home runs. He initially didn't make the LSU team as a freshman, he ...
With their 29th round pick of the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Jose Diaz, a 6-foot-1, 178-pound left handed pitcher out of the Advantage Learning Institute High School. Diaz is a projectable 17-year-old out of Puerto Rico with a commitment to Central Arizona Community College. The youngest player the Yankees have taken in ...
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 ...
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 ...
With their 26th round draft pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Charles Haslup, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound right handed pitcher out of the University of Maryland College Park. The 20-year-old Haslup is extremely skinny (200-pounds is by far the heaviest he's listed anywhere), but has a build where he has potential to ...
With their 25th round pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Ty Moore, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound outfielder out of Mater Dei High School in California. The third sign-ability case in a row. The 18-year-old Moore is all about hitting. His swing sounds a bit long with too much movement in his stance, but ...
With their 24th round pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Jose Mesa Jr., a 6-foot-4, 215-pound right handed pitcher out of Charles Flanagan High School in Florida. This 18-year-old is the son of former Major Leaguer Jose Mesa and is another sign-ability case. From what it sounds like, Mesa expected to ...
With their 23rd round pick in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player draft, the Yankees selected Vincent Jackson, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound center fielder out of Luella High School in Georgia. Potentially the first real sign-ability case, the 18-year-old Jackson profiles as a middle-of-the-order bat. He's a lefty with a strong arm that some teams considered as a ...
