According to Baseball America’s draft database*, the Yanks signed 27 out of the 49 players they selected. Because bonus terms were not disclosed for all 27 of these draftees, it’s hard to know how much more the Yanks shelled out beyond the $6,185,000 they gave to 11 of their newest bonus babies.
BA also broke down the total bonus figures for each team’s top 10 draftees. That information can be found here.
As I’ve been complaining all week, my personal feeling is that there’s no reason why the #1 revenue team in baseball should be coming in behind other MLB teams in this particular area of player procurement.
