2013 MLB Draft Results: Yankees 26-40 round selections - Josh Pettitte


In the 26th round the Yankees picked Cal Quantrill, the son of former Yankee Paul Quantrill, with the 794th pick of the draft. The right-handed pitcher has an advanced understanding of the game as the son of a big leaguer and relies on a sinker ball in the upper-80s. He also throws a changeup, curveball and slider, with his change having the potential to be a plus offering. Right now Quantrill is 6' 2 and 176 pounds, but he's expected to add velocity as he grows. He was taken out of Trinity College School in Canada and is committed to Stanford.

The Yankees drafted RHP Dillon McNamara, a senior from Adelphi University in New York in the 27th round, making him 824th overall. The 6' 5", 220 pound stater throws a fastball, slider, and cutter. He was the ace of the staff when he was diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrom, the same condition Chris Carpenter is currently dealing with, and had surgery last year to repair the damage. He was placed in the bullpen so he could start back slow, but he ended up thriving in the role, topping off at 95 mph and setting the Adelphi single season saves record (10). Although he's been in the bullpen, he could still be a starter.

In the 28th round the Yankees finally took a catcher in Fresno State's Trent Garrison, the 854th overall pick in the draft. The fifth year senior and teammate of fellow Yankee draftee, Aaron Judge, bats left-handed and hit .280/.330/.347 in 193 at-bats for the 2013 season. He was named 2012 second-team All-Western Athletic Conference, 2012 All-Tournament Team, and 2012 Academic All-WAC team, 2013 Mountain West First-Team honorees. Garison was drafted by the Angels in the 50th round of the 2011 draft, the last year the draft went that long, and ended up playing in one game before suffering a season ending injury. He is the brother of Taylor Garrison, who the Yankees took in the seventh round of the 2012 draft.

The Yankees drafted OF Charles White, a junior from the University of Maryland, College Park, in the 29th round to become the 884th overall selection. The 5' 9" 175 pound left-handed batter hit .350/.449/.411 in 214 at-bats this season. As a high schooler he was named to the Rawlings All-American and All-Region Central Region Team in 2010 and appeared on Perfect Game's top 1000 prospects list.

In the 30th round the Yankees selected OF Cody Thomas 914th overall. The left-handed hitter from Cody Heritage High School in Texas profiles to be a physical outfielder and could become a solid baseball player. Thomas is committed the University of Oklahoma where he will play baseball and football. As a quarterback, the Sooners expect him to play football, but if he decides on baseball, the 6' 5, 215 pounder offers a lot of power potential. His swing is long and needs work, but he's athletic enough to make the necessary adjustments. He was on the 2013 Rawlings All-American and All-Region Texas - All Region 1st Team.

The Yankees drafted SS Kevin Cornelius out of Grayson County College in Texas in the 31st round as the 944th overall pick. The 6'1" 178 pound right-handed hitter was previously drafted by the Yankees in the 42nd round of the 2011 draft before he opted to go to TCU. He hit .398/.441/.718 in 181 at-bats, leading the team in home runs (12) and RBI (56) for Grayson this season. He was described as having an overly aggressive swing with an uppercut.

Chauncey 'Kale' Sumner was drafted by the Yankees as a senior from Hawaii Pacific University. He was chosen in the 32nd round of the draft and was picked 974th overall. Sumner was drafted as a third baseman, but he has played all around the infield and scouts say that his best chance to make it is as a catcher. The right-handed hitter earned PacWest First Team All-League in 2012 and PacWest Freshman of the Year honors in 2010.

The Yankees selected RHP Shane McCarley from Manvel High School in Texas as the 1004th overall pick in the 33rd round. The 6'1", 205 pounder is a highly regarded quarterback in the Southern Houston area and played outfield for Manvel, as well as pitched.

The Yankees selected 2B Hector Crespo, a senior at Appalachian State University, in the 34th round at 1034th overall. The 5' 10" 175 pound right-handed hitter is the teammate of 24th round Yankee draftee Sam Agnew-Wieland. In his senior year he earned Southern Conference's First Team All-League Team, hit .336, stole 21 bases to become the ASU all-time leader (100).

The Yankees took RHP Nick Green with their 35th round pick to make him 1064th overall. The 6' 1" 165 pound righty comes from Fountain-Ft Carson High School in Colorado. He is also an outfielder and he was named to the Rawlings All-American and All-Region West Region Team in 2013.

The Yankees selected LHP Tyler Stubblefield from Lufkin High School in Texas as the 1093rd overall pick in the 36th round. The 6' 5" 215 pounder sits around 86-88 mph, but hits as high as 91 mph and he throws a slider and a changeup as well. He plays football as well and is committed to Texas A&M. As a junior in high school he was ranked 475th in the nation and the #6 lefty in the state of Texas by Perfect Game.

The Yankees took Josh Pettitte, the son of Andy Pettitte with their 37th round pick to make him 1124th overall. The right-hander, out of Deer Park High School in Texas, has a strong commitment to Baylor and will likely pass on the Yankees' offer. He has modeled himself on his father and has a good easy delivery, but hits only as high as 88 mph. He has great control and good secondary pitches (changeup, curveball, slider). His father said the plan is still for him to go to college, which he needs to do in order to refine his abilities and iron out his weaknesses. Despite throwing two no-hitters this season, he needs to up his velocity or he's not going to make it.

The Yankees took OF Andrew Schmidt as the 1154th overall pick in the 38th round. The 6'0" 180 pound left-handed hitter comes from Regis Jesuit High School in Colorado and was named to the 2013 Rawlings All-American and All-Region West Region Team.

The Yankees took SS Ty Afenir with their 39th round pick to make him the 1184 overall pick. The 6' 1" 185 pound right-handed hitter comes from Washington State University, where he earned Academic All-PAC-12 Honorable Mention, after transferring from Palomar, where he was named to the First-Team All-Pacific Coast Athletic Conference as a freshman. He is the nephew of former major leaguer Troy Afenir, who played for three different teams throughout the '80s and '90s.

With their final pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, the Yankees drafted OF Kyle Buchanan in the 40th round as the 1214th overall pick. The 5' 10" 185 pound right-handed hitter is a junior from Florida Gulf Coast University and previously attended Santa Fe College.
