Quick Hit: Yankees Sign David Metzgar


Another day and another non-drafted free agent signed by the New York Yankees. This time around it is Cal State Bakersfield’s David Metzgar out of Bakersfield, California. Metzgar is listed as an infielder and outfielder on the school’s website so a bit of versatility may be headed to the Yankees system after Metzgar passed a physical this week.

In four seasons at CSUB the second baseman posted a .336/.393/.427/.820 slash line with two home runs and 136 RBI. The Baseball Cube has their own set of unique rankings systems much like scouts use with their 20-80 rankings which may help explain what kind of player Metzgar is. The rankings are similar to scout’s rankings and the full explanation can be seen on the Baseball Cube’s website.

Speed: 72
Power: 44
Contact: 84
XBH: 42
RBI: 69
Hitting: 86
Durability: 95


Metzgar is a second baseman and will be the 21st player in CSUB history to sign a professional contract so congratulations to him and congratulations to the school. Welcome to the family David!
