The Yankees have signed their second-round pick, Austin Aune, to a $1 million bonus. That's nearly double the assigned $548,400 value for the No. 89 overall selection.
Aune was a two-sport star at Argyle (Texas) HS, quarterbacking his team to the state 3-A football championship game last fall while passing for 3,411 yards and accounting for 42 touchdowns. He had signed a football scholarship and planned to play both sports at Texas Christian.
On the diamond, Aune is a shortstop whom most scouts believe will wind up in center or right field. His raw power and arm strength are plus tools, and he runs well.
