Yankees Sign 8th Round Pick Brandon Thomas

The Yankees 8th round pick in the 2013 MLB First Year Players Draft Brandon Thomas from Georgia Tech has officially signed with the club today. Thomas' slot recommendation was a little over $150,000 and he signed for less than half that when he signed for $75,000. I fully expect that other $75,000 to end up in Ian Clarkin's pocket before this time next week. The Pirates drafted Thomas last year but he decided to go back to GT for his senior year and spent most of the season injured or not at 100% after battling mono. Thomas had little leverage with him being a senior and the Yankees knew that but still got a great steal with the 254th pick overall. As a Yankees fan who has recently moved to Atlanta Georgia and a professed Georgia Tech college baseball, basketball, and football fan I have to say I think I found my latest prospect crush.
