Sneak Peek Into The 2014 MLB First Year Player's Draft
Baseball America has released their Top 50 prospects heading into the 2014 MLB First Year Player's Draft and it can be seen HERE. While we can't, and shouldn't for that matter, put much stock into this seeing as it is the middle of October and the draft is not for another eight months or so but it is still fun to look ahead. The Yankees have the 18th pick overall in the first round as it stand right now but that can obviously change with us losing that pick to sign a guy that has declined a qualifying offer, a Brian McCann for example. We can also move up if a team in front of us not in the top ten, since those are protected picks, signs one of those same free agents thus losing their picks. Also we could gain picks in the first round if we extend qualifying offers to our free agents only for them to decline and sign elsewhere. Either way there are a lot of "if's" and "but's" so again don't put much stock into these rankings at all.
