Yankees Sign Austin Aune

The Yankees signed second round selection Austin Aune for a $1MM bonus, Jim Callis of Baseball America reports (on Twitter). The Yankees selected the high school shortstop/outfielder 89th overall in last week's draft.

MLB recommends a bonus of $548K for the selection, so Aune's bonus will account for a disproportionate chunk of the Yankees' draft budget. Aune had been recruited to play quarterback at TCU, Callis adds.

    Woaw.. Think NY only had like 4m total allotted to them with the new CBA.. This may bite hard on them.

    Haven’t gone over their draftee recap for several days to see how many high upsides they took, even if they drafted many/any college seniors to aide in signing any high upsides.

      They signed a ton of college seniors in the first 10 rounds. They’ll be fine.

         Cheers and Thanks Andrew. Easier to ask than drag out every teams draft..

    For the sake of the All-Name Team, I hope this guy someday makes it to The Show.
