With the 23rd overall pick, the Yankees selected prep catcher Anthony Seigler. The switch-hitter and switch-thrower authored a .421 batting average with 13 home runs and 16 stolen bases for Cartersville High School.
The Yankees had long been connected to high school bats in the draft, so this pick makes perfect sense. The organization is also shallow on catching depth, and Seigler would go a long way to correct that. He had been linked to New York in a recent FanGraphs’ mock draft.
