Yanks 4th pick, #154 overall


The Yanks took Brad Suttle, 3B, Texas with the final pick of round numbero four.

Scouting Report: A decent contact hitter with below average power and speed. He’s okay defensively at the hot corner. He was miserable in the Cape Cod League last summer, which is where the best of the best college guys go to strut their stuff.

My Take: Eh, he was ranked kinda high on draft boards despite the uninspiring scouting report. Color me unimpressed.

Outlook: He’s a draft eligible sophomore, so he’s got some major leverage during negotiations. I wouldn’t at all be surprised if they didn’t sign him.

Update: They shoulda taken RHP Jake Arrieta out of TCU instead. The O’s just took him with the 5th pick of the 5th round.

    would have rather had middlebrooks

    or McGeary

  3. Matt L says:

    The scouting report basically says that he is a below average defensive player, with below average power and speed. I don’t get this pick at all. All in all I am somewhat disapointed with the draft this year. While I like Brackman, the others don’t really excite me.

  4. KAnst says:

    I like some of the picks but at each pick there is someone else I would have preferred.

  5. Matt L says:

    KAnst, there goes Middlebrooks to Boston.

  6. Matt L says:

    According to EJ, over at Potential Pinstripes, Suttle was ranked the best pure hitter in the draft by Baseball America.

  7. KAnst says:

    Who on earth is Olbrychowski, this draft has bummed me out we better use our financial power tomorrow. I wanna see two of Jack Mcgeary, Greg Peavey, Evan Danieli drafted

  8. Matt L says:

    Is that it for today? Are we in for 45 rounds tommorow?
