If you haven’t noticed yet I have been running posts on each of the players the Yankees drafted this week. There are 50 of them and I’m going to try to do as many as I can. I might start doing them out of order at some point too. So far we have the first eight draft picks up and I have at least four more on deck for today.

The common thing about these players are that they are young. The Yankees drafted 20 high schoolers in total which is a lot for a draft.

They are also athletic players and it seems like a lot of them are Yankee fans which may help the Yankees when it comes to signing these kids. Look at the first pick Cito Culver , he’s a lifelong Yankees fan and Derek Jeter , the guy he may one day replace, is his boyhood hero.

Here is a list of the first 8 draft picks we’ve covered already:

1. Cito Culver SS
2. Angelo Gumbs CF/SS
3. Rob Segedin 3B
4. Mason Williams OF
5. Thomas Kahnle RHP
6. Gabe Encinas RHP
7. Taylor Anderson OF
8. Kyle Roller 1B
