Yankees Draft Update

Via Lohud, here are the players that the Yankees have signed so far from this year’s draft. Remember, August 15 is deadline to sign players:

3B Dante Bichette Jr. (Supplemental first round)
RHP Jordan Cote (3rd round)
INF Matt Duran (4th)
1B Austin Jones (7th)
RHP Philip Wetherell (8th)
RHP Zachary Arneson (9th)
RHP Mark Montgomery (11th)
OF Cody Grice (12th)
OF Justin James (13th)
RHP Branden Pinder (16th)
RHP Hayden Sharp (18th)
RHP Robert Paullus (19th)
INF Zach Wilson (21st)
RHP Corey Maines (23rd)
LHP Matthew Tracy (24th)

Cote signed today, Bichette, Duran, Jones, James, and Sharp are in the GCL, Grice, Pinder, Wilson, and Tracy are all with Staten Island, and Montgomery is in Charleston. It was reported that second rounder Sam Stafford signed a while back, but I guess he hasn’t been placed yet. Greg Bird, Jake Cave, and Daniel Camarena are the guys I’m looking forward to seeing. All are high school guys who are on the fence so we’ll see with them.
