Austin Wells signs deal with Yankees

The Yankees signed first-round pick C Austin Wells.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Austin Wells selected No. 28 by New York Yankees

The New York Yankees have selected Arizona C Austin Wells with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft.

Fantasy Impact

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.
