The Yankees have signed Vanderbilt righthander Caleb Cotham for $675,000. His bonus is $5,000 short of the highest in the fifth round this year (Jeff Malm, Rays) and is more than four times MLB’s $149,400 recommendation for his draft slot (No. 165).
A draft-eligible sophomore, Cotham boosted his stock by not allowing a run in 13 innings this summer with the Cape Cod League’s Brewster Whitecaps. After being bothered by a sore knee during the spring, he pitched at 91-94 mph with his fastball and flashed a plus slider on the Cape.
