Yankees select Blake Rutherford with the 18th pick


The Yankees select outfielder Blake Rutherford from Chaminade High School. The 19-year-old left-hand hitter has some power which would play nice at Yankees Stadium.

New York took a high-ceiling type player. Rutherford is a solid defender with plus speed, however, his arm is his biggest weakness.

Rutherford batted .577 with 45 hits, including 13 doubles and four home runs in 27 games this season for his prep school. Last fall, he played on the USA 18-under team and hit a decisive home run to win a game on the team’s march to a gold medal in Japan. He was also named MVP of the tournament.

There are a lot of people that are very high on Rutherford.
