Yanks’ fifth pick, #140 overallBy
With their 4th round pick, the Yanks’ choose Corban Joseph, SS, Franklin HS (Tn.)
Scouting Report: Hits for power and average to all fields, but he’s an offense first shortstop and will likely have to change positions. He’s got a big wiry frame, so there’s plenty of room to add strength. Fast, but not a burner. Here’s his scouting video.
My Take: I’m intrigued. If the kid can hit then the kid can hit. Like I said for the Adams’ pick, the Yanks need middle infielders.
Outlook: Not sure how his signability looks, but if they lock him up he’ll head to the Rookie level GCL.
