Initial 2019 MLB Draft Order is Set


With the conclusion of the 2018 major league baseball season, the initial order of selection for the 2019 First-Year-Player-Draft has been set and as it stands the New York Yankees will have the 30th overall selection when draft day comes.

The last time the Yankees had the 30th overall pick was in 2015 when they selected shortstop Kyle Holder out of San Diego with their second pick of the draft.

The last time they had their first selection at the 30th overall pick is in 2012 when they selected right-handed pitcher Ty Hensley out of Santa Fe High School in Edmond, Oklahoma.

The only other times the Yankees had the 30th overall pick was in 2007 when they selected right-hander Andrew Brackman and in 1966 when they picked left-handed pitcher Gary Timberlake.
