With the last pick of the 2nd round, the Yanks popped Austin Romine, C, El Toro High (Ca.)
Scouting Report: Huge power potential and he doesn’t struggle to make contact. He’s got an accurate, cannon arm behind the plate. Not much of a runner, but he’sÂ improving defensively. He’s a strong competitor and grew up around the game – his pops Kevin was a big leaguer, and his brother Andrew is also draft eligible this year out of Arizona State.
My Take: Sweet. Let’s just hope he signs and doesn’t head off to college like his brother.Â
Outlook: He’s headed for the GCL Yanks once he signs. Frankie Cervelli’s had a great year, but Romine’s a better prospect behind the dish.
