Yankees Sign Undrafted OF Adam Kirsch

The New York Yankees are filling their farm system with a ton of undrafted talent and the latest is Texas Tech's outfielder Adam Kirsch. Kirsch has become the fifth player of that Texas Tech team to be signed and/or drafted this season, a very impressive stat when you think about it. Kirsch led the Red Raiders with a .360 average in eight NCAA tournament games this season and will report to the Tampa Yankees on Monday.

Kirsch, a college senior, only played one season at Tech and put up a .307 average with 37 runs, 21 doubles, three triples, 10 home runs, and 51 RBI. Kirsch also hit 500 (4-8) in the College World Series this season and instantly becomes an intriguing bat to keep your eye on this summer.

Just a quick FYI, the last player the Yankees drafted and signed from Texas Tech was Jeff Karstens in 2003.
