Yurchak was a high school teammate of 2016 Braves first rounder Ian Anderson before enrolling at Wake Forest for the 2015 season. Following a freshman year in which he batted .313 and slugged .456 for the Demon Deacons, Yurchak transferred to Binghamton. He sat out a year and then played in the Cape Cod League in 2016, where he was an all-star and batted .295. Yurchak's profile is built entirely on his pure hitting ability. Yurchak shows elite bat-to-ball ability and was one of the toughest players to strike out in D-I baseball this spring. Scouts note his below-average athleticism and don't see him playing third base at the pro level. He also shows below-average power. The teams that like Yurchak see him as an elite pure hitter and will work with him to try to develop more power in pro ball.
