Yankees Sign 2013 Draft 36th Round Pick Nestor Cortes

The Yankees have agreed to terms with their 36th round pick in the 2013 draft today before the deadline to get everybody signed. Cortes slot recommendation was $100,00 and is expected to sign for that or less but no numbers have been released yet. Cortes is an 18 year old left handed pitcher out of Hialeah High School in Miami where he tuned up fast balls in the low 90's with good sinking action. With him only standing 5'11" he is considered to be undersized which is always a concern but he also has one of the best change ups that a high schooler can have so who knows. He does not have the polish to not be considered raw but at the same time I can see him moving through the system in three or four years because of that change up.
