Baseball America released their second mock draft of the year yesterday (subscription req’d), and now have the Yanks taking Texas prep outfielder Slade Heathcott. In their previous mock draft they projected the Yanks to take Cal center fielder Brett Jackson. As you can see from his scouting report, Heathcott is a true five tool player that hits from the left side, and he’s also a good prospect on the mound. Lane Meyer at NoMaas interviewed him earlier this year, and Heathcott said the Yanks have been in contact with him.
