Quick Hit: 1990 Draft Signing Period Was The Best

The players that the New York Yankees added in the 1990 MLB First Year Players Draft and International signing period probably made that year the best of all time in the Yankees organization. The Yankees drafted a lanky left hander in Andy Pettitte, a second basemen turned catcher in Jorge Posada, a pair of outfielders in Ricky Ledee and Shane Spencer, and signed a starting pitcher out of Panama named Mariano Rivera.

Between these five men you have a total of 19 World Series rings, Posada did not get one in 1996, and 14 alone are between three of the four members of the Core Four. Posada was a five time All Star and five time Silver Slugger Award winner for catcher. Pettitte is the Yankees all time leader in strikeouts with 2,020 and has the 1999 ALCS MVP Award hanging up in his shelf at home. Rivera was a 13 time All Star, All Time leader in saves in Major League history, and five Rolaids Relief Awards hanging in his house.
