The Yankees signed their top 2011 draft pick on Saturday, landing supplemental first-rounder Dante Bichette Jr. with a $750,000 bonus. MLB's recommendation for Bichette's No. 51 overall draft slot is $694,800, making his the biggest above-slot deal to date.
Bichette's father Dante made four All-Star Game appearances during a 14-year big league career. Dante Jr. played third base at Orangewood Christian HS (Orlando) but profiles more like his dad as a power-hitting left fielder. He generates plenty of bat speed and also has a strong arm.
