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.
