MOD #2: New York Yankees

New York Yankees Draft Preliminary Discussion

Pinstripe Alley Mock Draft Discussion

Following the first round of talks, we've established a few things.

First, most people who have sounded off prefer drafting the best available player, rather than drafting based on positional need (a no-brainer).

Second, it looks like many prefer a prep hitter or college pitcher, although believe the club may be best served going the college hitter route with consideration to the new CBA rules.

In their first mock draft, Baseball America has the Yankees selecting Stryker Trahan, a Louisiana prep catcher.

Let's start tossing a few more names around and create a list to work from here, and see if we can't focus in on a few players we'd like to target at Pick #30.

Here are a few resources with some of the top draft prospects that should be available when the Yankees pick:

I've made it no secret I'm a big fan of Florida State 2B/OF James Ramsey, but also like prep pitcher Zach Eflin and Shane Watson. What does everyone else have in mind?
