Inspired by Tanya's draft pick tracker from last year and the similarly superb draft pick tracker designed over at Amazin' Avenue by Eric Simon on Sunday, the Yankees draft pick tracker is back. Below, you'll find a handy list of all 39 players selected by the Yankees over the weekend during the 2014 MLB Draft. If you click on each player, it will take you the appropriate write-up for each player (or write-up group, in the case of all draft picks past the 10th round) diligently composed over the weekend by Tanya or Jason. I've also worked to find as many of the draftees on Twitter so that you can follow them at your leisure.
Signing bonuses will be listed under "Status" if they are made available, as well their assignments (with sourced links). As Tanya noted last year, all picks after the 10th round have the same expected slot money of $100,000, though players can sign for more or less than that. The Yankees have $3,202,300 of slot money to use. We will update this post as the draftees and the Yankees make their decisions.

6/10: Patrick Ebert of Perfect Game reports that Montgomery has signed and will play at Staten Island.
6/10: The New England Baseball Journal reports that DeCarr will sign for twice the standard 3rd round slot value of $575,000. Not a bad chunk of change for the prep righty, who might be the real prize of this Yankees draft class.
6/10: Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that Harvey will sign for $60,000.
6/11: Josh Norris of Baseball America reports that McFarland, Borens, Thompson, Harvey, Slaybaugh, Gordon, Wotherspoon, Lindemuth, and Del Bosque have signed.
6/12: Cotillo reports that Foley has signed for slot value at $317,500.
6/13: The Staten Island Yankees released their roster today, and among the names there are Wotherspoon, Slaybaugh, McFarland, Thompson, and Bolasky.
6/14: Chad Jennings of LoHud reports that Lindgren, DeCarr, Foley, Holder, Callahan, Holmes, and Casas have all signed. George King of the New York Post added that Lindgren's bonus will be the slot amount of ~$1.1 million.
6/17: Jim Callis at MLB.com reports that Montgomery has signed for slot value, $424,000.
6/18: MLB.com's first 10 rounds signing tracker reported the actual signing figures of Lindgren ($1,018,700), Holder ($170,000), and McFarland ($10,000).
6/19: The University of Alabama's Athletics program is reporting that Kamplain has signed with the Yankees and will report to Staten Island.
6/19: The Yankees' transaction tracker has both Jose and Gittens signed (in addition to others).
6/21: The GCL rosters were posted and among the players there are DeCarr, Carley, Harvey, Foley, Holder, Jose, Gittens, Callahan, Borens, Casas, Holmes, Lindemuth, and Del Bosque. Lindgren is also there for now, but since management has already established that Charleston is where he'll start, it's safe to assume that he's just warming up on the GCL roster. (Same goes for Borens & Montgomery and Staten Island.)
6/24: Per Cotillo, the Yankees have signed Payton for $45,000, a good $133.3K under slot. That might help with signing some of those prep kids. Additionally, Callis reports that the Yankees signed Gittens for $125K, so $25K of the $133.3K saved on Payton goes against the pool. Callis also noted that Spencer signed for slot value ($157K).
6/30: Jordan Ramsey has opted to return to UNCW for his Senior year and will not sign with the Yankees.
7/14: Made some updates to the tracker based on roster spot assignment adjustments, but the biggest move was signing Vandy shortstop Vince Conde to slot value. July 18th is the cut-off date for draft signings, so we'll just have to wait and see if any of the other names sign. At this point, the likes of Chin, Cave, Toffey, Rivera, and Warren seem unlikely since there have been murmurs on Twitter that they're already doing summer travel leagues, prepping for collegiate baseball, etc.
7/18: The Yankees' 15th round pick Andrew Chin signed.
