C - NYY - MiLB
The Yankees signed first-round pick C Austin Wells.
Wells will receive a $2.5 million signing bonus, which is slightly above slot value for the 28th overall pick. Wells is viewed as an offensive catcher but it remains up in the air whether or not he can stick at the position long term.
The New York Yankees have selected Arizona C Austin Wells with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft.
Wells is definitely a bat-first catcher, and will most likely move off of the position a la Kyle Schwarber. He raked in both college and the Cape Cod league, sporting a slugging percentage north of .500. If he is able to stick at catcher, he could be a top-five fantasy catcher with his power.
