Yankees Sign Dante Bichette Jr.

The Yankees have signed top draft pick Dante Bichette Jr., reports Marc Carig of The Star-Ledger (on Twitter). He received a $750K signing bonus, above MLB's slot recommendation of approximately $695K.

Bichette, a third baseman/outfielder from a Florida high school, was selected with the compensation pick the Yankees received for the loss of Javier Vazquez (51st overall). Baseball America (subs. req'd) says Bichette's "profile will wind up being that of a power-hitting left fielder." His father, Dante Sr., hit .299/.336/.499 with 274 homers in a big league career that spanned five teams and parts of 14 seasons.
