Yanks third pick, #124 overall

Yanks second pick, #94 overall
Yanks 4th pick, #154 overall

With the final pick of the 3rd round, the Yanks picked Ryan Pope, RHP, Savannah College of Art & Design

I asked Keith Law about him and got this response: “good grief, i didn’t even know SCAD had a team”

This is all I’ve been able to dig up on the kid:

After today’s complete game two-hitter against conference rival Northwood, here’s his info for the year so far:

9 starts
9 complete games
4 shutouts
ERA 1.25
65.0 IP
74 K’s
6 walks
Opponents hitting a robust .149 off him

He’s got a no-hitter, two one-hitters, a three-hitter and now a two-hitter

Go here and scroll all the way to the bottom to see his scouting video.

    Possibly an easy sign pick to save money since both the first and second round picks are gonna take a bunch of money to sign? I dont got any other reasoning. I would have much rather had Will Middlebrooks, Greg Peavey, or even Kyle Russel

  • Matt L

    I know nothing about him, but he doesn’t seem to throw all that hard, in the video he seemed to top out at 88MPH.

    Another guy I would like is Casey Crosby…there are plenty of very good players still on the board please draft one of them at 154
