Keep track of the Yankees’ 2018 draft class.

New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

The 2018 MLB Draft is over, and now all that’s left to do is wait and see who decides to sign with the Yankees. Obviously looking to strengthen a current weakness in the farm system, the Yankees selected catchers in the first and second round, then picked four more before all was said and done. Don’t worry though, they still drafted plenty of right-handed pitchers. Their favorite.

Like in previous years, I’ve put together a list of the Yankees’ 2018 draft class, including their Twitter handle if they happen to have one. It typically takes a few days before players start making their decisions, but some have already done so. It will take even longer for their team assignments to become available. We’ll continue to update this post and the table as more information trickles out.
