Via the fantastic ESPN Draft Blog, the Yanks have shown a lot of interest in prep shortstop David Renfroe, most likely for their second pick, number 76 overall. Renfroe, who hit .509 for South Panola HS (Mississippi), is an excellent athlete and a top two-way prospect. MLB.com’s scouting report says he has above average offensive potential and possibly the same on defense, and that his game plays up because of outstanding instincts. His father played professionally for nine years, so he’s also got good bloodlines. Here’s a clip of Renfroe going deep in a showcase game.
