Pinstripe Alley Podcast Episode 51: Draft class and prospect highlights

Refsnyder won a College World Series just a couple years ago; can he help the Yankees win the real thing two years later? - Harry How

Following last weekend's MLB Draft, we brought back Tanya Bondurant for another prospect discussion. You might detect an affinity for Rob Refsnyder.

The long-awaited MLB Draft went forth last week, so Tanya joined us on the podcast to discuss it, as well as the recent developments with the rest of the system, most notably Rob Refsnyder and Aaron Judge.
