3 Yankees Prospects Selected in the LIDOM Draft

Earlier this month the Dominican Professional Baseball League held their annual draft of prospects and three Yankees minor leaguers were selected by three different teams.

Right-handed pitcher Alexander Vizcaino was selected by Gigantes del Cibao. While Right-handed pitcher Jhony Brito was taken by Toros del Este and right-hander Luis Gil went to Tigres del Licey.

Vizcaino, 22, spent the 2019 season with both the Charleston RiverDogs and Tampa Tarpons.   Between both teams, he was 6-6 with a 4.38 ERA over 21 games with 128 strikeouts over 115 innings of work.
