Now that the regular season is over for all teams, we know with certainty that the Yankees’ first round pick next season will be #31 overall. They finished with the third best record in baseball, but there are some compensation picks early in the draft that push them back a few spots. Depending on how active the free agent market is for Type-A’s, the Yanks second rounder is likely to fall the 80’s somewhere. Of course, they’re very likely to surrender their first rounder to sign one such free agent, so don’t get too attached to that 31st overall pick.
