The amateur draft starts today, and the Yankees get their first shot at 32nd overall, last in the first round. They don’t get any supplemental picks ,and will pick again at the end of the 2nd and 3rd rounds, 82nd and 112th overall.

In honor of the draft, I thought it would be a good idea to look at the Yankees roster and see where each player was selected.

1st Round

Alex Rodriguez (1st overall), Mark Teixeira (5th), Derek Jeter (6th), Nick Swisher (16th), CC Sabathia (20th), Greg Golson (21st), Phil Hughes (23rd), Joba Chamberlain (41st)

3rd Round

Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson, Nick Johnson

5th Round

Javier Vazquez

7th Round

Chad Moeller, Sergio Mitre

8th Round

AJ Burnett

9th Round

Mark Melancon

17th Round

David Robertson

20th Round

Kevin Russo, Boone Logan

22nd Round

Andy Pettitte

24th Round

Jorge Posada

30th Round

Marcus Thames

34th Round

Chad Gaudin

International Free Agents

Robinson Cano, Francisco Cervelli, Juan Miranda, Ramiro Pena, Damaso Marte, Chan Ho Park, Ivan Nova, Alfredo Aceves, Mariano Rivera, Romulo Sanchez

So it looks like most of the talent is going to come in three rounds. After that ,the Yankees are as likely to sign a future major leaguer internationally as they are to get one after the 3rd round of the draft.
