The Yankees made some moves in the draft, and it was for a pair of catchers.  Interesting and cool. I was hoping for some early pitching, but it makes sense... they did what they did. Plus, one of these guys does some pitching as well...

Empire Sports Media has the story:

"The Yankees drafted a pair of catchers in Monday’s Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft in a move to add depth to the organization at the catcher position, which is thin beyond the Triple A level.

Anthony Seigler, 5’11, 200 lb, from Cartersville High School in Georgia, was the Yankees 23rd pick in the first round was one of the more unusual players featured in the draft—-he is a switch hitter and a switch pitcher, as well as a catcher....

Josh Breaux, 6’2, 200 lb, out of McLennan Community College in Texas, was selected 61st by the Yankees in the second round of the draft. Rick Keeler of Pinstriped Prospects, describes Breaux as below-average defensively, but he hits well and runs well in spite of being a catcher. "

Nice Start... let's see what happens next.
