With their third round pick in the 2014 Draft, the Yankees selected high school right-hander Austin Decarr. Decarr was rated as BA’s 68th best prospect, so on the surface it is tough to not like this pick.
As they said on the MLB.com broadcast, he could’ve gone yesterday in the first two rounds. He is the Yankees' highest selection of a high school pitcher since taking Ian Calrkin in the first round of last year's draft. He has a 92-94 fastball and a good curve. The development of his change, and his overall command will dictate his future role.
MLB.com described the Northeast pitcher as a guy "more advanced than many, with more consistent pitchability. He'll pitch at 92-93 mph, but can reach back for 95 mph when he needs it. His curveball shows flashes of being a plus offering, and his changeup gives him the chance to have a very effective three-pitch mix. He can throw all three pitches for strikes."
I will give a more detailed report on him later tonight.
