All of the last minute mock drafts are rolling in this morning, and Baseball America’s latest effort has the Yankees taking California first baseman/outfielder Christian Yelich (no sub. req’d!). They’ve been linked to him all throughout the spring, and late last night we learned that the Yanks were targeting (one of two) high school bats with the 32nd overall pick, so Yelich fits. He can definitely hit and defend, but he’s got a terrible throwing arm that limits him to first and left. That could improve with some mechanic tweaks and a throwing program, which could help turn Yelich into an impact centerfielder.
