Yanks second pick, #94 overall


With the last pick of the 2nd round, the Yanks popped Austin Romine, C, El Toro High (Ca.)

Scouting Report: Huge power potential and he doesn’t struggle to make contact. He’s got an accurate, cannon arm behind the plate. Not much of a runner, but he’s improving defensively. He’s a strong competitor and grew up around the game – his pops Kevin was a big leaguer, and his brother Andrew is also draft eligible this year out of Arizona State.

My Take: Sweet. Let’s just hope he signs and doesn’t head off to college like his brother.Â

Outlook: He’s headed for the GCL Yanks once he signs. Frankie Cervelli‘s had a great year, but Romine’s a better prospect behind the dish.

    I would’ve prefered Harvey, McGeary, or Peavy, but this will have to do I suppose.

    I wonder how far Harvey, McGeary and Peavy will fall…if they are around with the Yanks next pick id like to see them grab one of them or Will Middlebrooks

    So much for Harvey, he was just picked by the Angels.

    I want Will Middlebrooks or Greg Peavey in round 4
