2013 MLB Draft: Day Three Open Thread

Mike Ehrmann

Rounds 11-40 of the 2013 MLB Draft will begin today at 1:00 pm EDT streaming live on At this stage of things, the picks move fast and the players become less and less known commodities to people who haven't spent months researching. Those in the top 100 prospects who are left are likely there because teams know they have little to no shot of pulling them away from school. That means teams are looking for value in unsuspecting places, high upside, and signability at this stage.

The Yankees have yet to take a catcher in this year's draft, which makes a little sense when you see the depth that already exists in the organization at that position. Still, I'd be surprised if one wasn't taken by them in one of their first few picks today. First base is also pretty barren throughout the system, but it seems like that position is usually a player who couldn't hack it elsewhere moved to first base, rather than someone drafted specifically for the job.


What positions do you think the Yankees need to focus on today?

Are you happy with the players they have drafted so far?

Of the players already drafted by the Yankees, who do you predict will make the majors first?

If the draft at this stage is of no interest to you, feel free to use this as an open thread for the day if you're stuck inside until game time later. The East Coast, at least where I am, is still dealing with additional rain after already dealing with monsoon season caused by Tropical Storm Andrea. I think I've forgotten what the sun looks like. Hopefully it's nicer where you are.
