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

  • Matt L

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

    I want Will Middlebrooks or Greg Peavey in round 4
