Austin Wells is in the fold: ‘Officially a Yankee!’

June 26, 2020 04:26AM
First-round draft pick Austin Wells has signed on the dotted line.

“Officially a Yankee!’’ Wells, the 28th-overall pick in the first round of the 2020 MLB Draft, posted to his Twitter account on Thursday night with a photo of him wearing a Yankees cap and pinstripe jersey.

The 20-year-old catcher — who originally was drafted by the Yankees in the 35th round in 2018 before deciding to play at Arizona — agreed to a $2.5 million bonus, according to YES Network. That just about matches the $2,493,900 recommended slot value of his selection.
