Yankees Sign Jose Mesa

Again... so much for the draft spending stopping the big spending Yankees from getting who they want huh?

Jose Mesa said before the draft that if he did not get drafted in the top 10 rounds that he would not be signing with any team. Well the Yankees drafted him 24th overall and well outside the top 10 rounds. The draft pool signing cap for the rounds outside the top 10 is 100K unless you have money left over from the top 10 rounds, which the Yankees have 400K left. No word on what he signed for but he can sign for as much as 500K now after the Hensley sign. 

This may be the first of many guys that seemed not signable due to the new rules that the Yankees get. The Yankees always get their guy.
