News and Notes: Prospect Edition

Some info on Yankee prospects/draftees:
  • 17 year old Kevin DeLeon, the head of last year's international free agent class, made his debut last night for the DSL Yankees2. (That stands for Dominican Summer League, in which the Yankees have two teams). He went 1-3 with a walk and two steals, while batting cleanup.
  • 7th round pick, high school catcher Kyle Higashioka, says it will take $500,000 to sign. He is a good defensive catcher with some power projection, and most likely will be signed.
  • 2B David Adams, a 3rd rounder out of UVA, and SS Addison Maruszack, have both signed. They will probably go to Staten Island, and Maruszack may be converted to catcher.
