Sources told Pinstriped Prospects on Thursday evening that former Yankees first-round pick Dante Bichette Jr. has inked a minor league deal with the Colorado Rockies organization. Bichette’s father represented the Rockies as an all-star four times in the 1990’s.
The Yankees drafted Bichette with high promise in 2011, but the infielder failed to fulfill the lofty expectations having never reached Triple-A in his six year minor league career with the Bombers. From 2011-2017, Bichette Jr. slashed .249/.330/.362 with 44 HR and 352 RBI in 715 career games.
