Keep track of the Yankees’ 2019 draft class!

MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

The 2019 MLB Draft wrapped up yesterday. Obviously looking to fill a need in the farm system, the Yankees selected quite a few infielders early. Don’t worry though, they drafted plenty of college pitchers before all was said and done. All that is left to do is wait to see who signs. Spoiler alert: Jack Leiter will almost certainly go to college.

Per usual, I’ve put together a list of the Yankees’ 2019 draft class. I included the Twitter handles for the players who I could locate. Holler in the comments if you find one I missed. There won’t be much info about signings for a few days at least, and it will take even longer before players get assigned to teams. Check back often as we will update this post when information becomes available.
