Yankees Top Pick Off to a Hot Start

Blake Rutherford, the Yankees top pick of 2016, wasted no time in signing with the club and reporting to the minor leagues.

He was promoted from the Gulf Coast league to the Appalachian League after just 8 games, in which he hit .240 with 1 home run and 3 RBI.

In the 14 games since his promotion, he has batted .429 with 1 HR and 6 RBI, 5 doubles and 4 triples.

Rutherford was the 18th pick, but was projected to be as high as a top 6 pick by MLB.com.
