Last night the New York Yankees had three picks in the first round of the Major League Baseball Draft. With the 33rd selection, the Yankees selected left-handed high school pitcher Ian Clarkin.
The folks on the MLB Network panel really liked the pick and described him as a “very projectable pitcher with lots of upside”. That’s basically what you want to hear about your first round pick.
What you are about to hear out of the kid’s mouth is exactly what you DON’T want to hear…after the jump.
Fast forward to the 1:15 mark. What comes out of the kid’s mouth is every Yankee fan’s worst nightmare.
