Drafted in the 16th round (480th overall) by the Kansas City Royals in 2017
The Yankees drafted Hudgins in the 35th round in 2014 out of high school but he went to Cal State Fullerton, where he was a three-year contributor and two-year starter behind the plate. Hudgins has never hit much, including a .221 average with three home runs in the regular season this spring, but has a good track record of handling pitchers well. Hudgins projects to be an average defender with an average arm behind the plate. He has plus raw power but is a poor hitter unable to get to it. College catchers tend to go higher than many think, and Hudgins' polished defense and raw power have some evaluators intrigued despite uninspiring career production.
