The Yankees have signed Jordan Cote for $725,000, the highest third-round bonus so far in 2011. The commissioner's office guideline for his No. 118 draft slot was $252,000.
A product of Winnisquam HS (Northfield, N.H.), Cote is a projectable 6-foot-5 righthander with an 88-92 mph fastball and a clean arm action. The Coastal Carolina recruit has drawn some comparisons to fellow New Hampshire native Chris Carpenter.
