    Just for the record, the Yankees passed on Nolan Arenado, Jason Kipnis, DJ LeMahieu, Billy Hamilton, Steven Matz, Garrett Richards and Kyle Seager in 2009 to draft this guy.

      Just for the record, prospects fail because they keep getting hurt and can’t stay on the field. This isn’t a scouting or drafting failure when it happens.

      Picked ahead of Slade Heathcott:
      Donovan Tate, 3rd pick, by the Padres
      Matt Hobgood, 5th pick, by the Orioles
      Grant Grenn, 13th pick, by the Athletics
      Alex White, 15th pick, by the Indians
      Bobby Borchering, 16th pick, by the Diamondbacks
      Chad James, 18th pick, by the Marlins
      Giovanni Mier, 21st pick, by the Astros
      Jared Mitchell, 23rd pick, by the White Sox
      Eric Arnett, 26th pick, by the Brewers

      7 of whom have never played a big league, of which several are now no longer in organized baseball, though they may be playing in an independent league somewhere.

      Somebody might pick up Heathcott, if not, I think the Yanks might re-sign him. It’s a tactic they’ve used a couple of times before.
