The Yankees have signed first-round pick Slade Heathcott for $2.2 million. He was drafted 27th overall, and the MLB recommendation for his slot was $1,107,000.
A two-way star at Texas High (Texarkana, Texas), Heathcott will be an outfielder in pro ball. He has legitimate five-tool potential and recovered from knee and shoulder injuries to come on strong at the end of his high school season. He had committed to Louisiana State.
We’re also hearing that the Yankees have signed second-rounder J.R. Murphy. We’re working to confirm the terms of the deal.
