Every Significant Brian Cashman Draft Pick Signing

The state of the farm system begins and ends in the draft so the fact that the New York Yankees finally have a farm system to speak of may be the workings of Brian Cashman. Sure, trades for Gleyber Torres, Clint Frazier, Justus Sheffield, Dillon Tate, Albert Abreu and others never hurt but quietly and surprisingly to some the Yankees have done well in the draft of late as well. The system is stocked with talent from top to bottom and is deep as it has ever been so do we finally praise Cashman for this? Or do we, the fan base, still think Cashman couldn’t draft his way out of a wet paper bag and hit water if he fell out of a boat? Here are his significant draft picks since he took over as the Yankees GM, in my opinion so if I missed one leave it below in the comments section, for better or worse.
