The New York Yankees prioritized arms and infielders over the first two days of the MLB Draft. What did they do on Day 3?

The New York Yankees have stocked up on young pitching and infielders in the 2021 MLB Draft, with lots of focus on upside. This makes sense for the analytics-minded Bronx Bombers, so here’s hoping the picks pan out down on the farm.

But the third day of the draft saw the Yankees make several more picks to restock their minor league system. Did general manager Brian Cashman keep with the high-upside approach? How did New York fare in rounds 11-20?

Round 12, Pick 363: Dartmouth C Ben Rice


Round 13, Pick 393: Virginia RHP Zach Messinger


Round 14, Pick 423: Durant HS (FL) RHIP Sean Hermann


Round 15, Pick 453: VCU RHP Danny Watson
