Complete List of Yankees and Mets Day 1 Draft Picks
Last night was the start of the 2019 Major League Baseball draft. The Baltimore Orioles had the number one overall pick and they selected catcher Adley Rutschman from Oregon State. The New York Yankees made three selections while the New York Mets made two. Here are the scouting reports from some of those selections from espn.com
New York Mets 12th overall- Brett Baty, 3B, Lake Travis HS (Austin, Texas)
Who is Baty? As a power-hitting prep prospect, he will need his bat to carry him to the majors, as his defense at third base is very much a work in progress. He also is one of the oldest high school players in this draft at 19½ -- a pretty big red flag.
New York Yankees 30th overall- Anthony Volpe, SS, Delbarton HS (Morristown, New Jersey)
Who is Volpe? A high school teammate of the more heralded Jack Leiter (a potential first-rounder himself, but likely headed to Vanderbilt), Volpe ranks just 90th on Keith Law's board. His hit tool projects as his most likely tool to be above-average, and Law likes his feel and instincts but believes Volpe will move to second or third in the pros.
The other day one picks included
Mets:Josh Wolf, RHP, St. Thomas HS (Bellaire, Texas)
Yankees: T.J. Sikkema, LHP, Missouri Josh Smith, 2B, LSU
