Red Sox Select 2B Nick Yorke With No. 17 Pick In 2020 MLB Draft


June 10, 2020

The Red Sox had the No. 17 pick in the 2020 MLB Draft, and they used it on an infielder.

Boston used its pick to select 18-year-old Nick Yorke, a second baseman out of Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, Calif. The right-handed Yorke spent all four years on his school’s varsity team, racking up a .457 batting average including 134 hits, 100 runs and 77 RBIs in 94 games.

Yorke, who comes in at 6-foot, 195 lbs., saw his senior year cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though he did manage to garner eight hits, nine runs and six RBIs on a .533 batting average in just five games. He committed to Arizona prior to the draft.

We can’t wait to see what this kid has up his sleeve.
