MLB Pipeline Mock Draft #1

So MLB pipeline had their first mock draft of the year really go up.  This one was done by Jonathan Mayo is hearing from draft people in the industry.  The full list you can see here.

Here is the pick that he has for the Yankees.

  1. New York Yankees
    Chris Betts, C, Wilson HS (Long Beach, Calif.)

While the question might remain about Betts’ ability to stay behind the plate long-term, most feel confident enough to send him out as a catcher. And even fewer doubt the bat, a left-handed stroke that should produce average and power.

You can also read our profile on Betts here.
I would like Betts in the system as he would add a good lefty power bat that can catch.  The only issue I see right now is you have Luis Torrens who would be at the same level as Betts.  He is coming off a missed year and the Yankees plus the industry is very high on Torrens.  The Yankees could do what they did with Montero and Romine thou as have them catch part time and DH the other time.  Either way Betts would be a good get here especially if the  Yankees feel that he will be able to catch.
