Yankees signed first-round pick OF Blake Rutherford.
Rutherford, a high school outfielder, was selected No. 18 overall in this month's draft. Jim Callis of MLB.com hears that he signed for $3,282,000, which is well above the slot value of $2,441,600 for the pick. The 19-year-old was among the best bats in this year's class and could prove to be a steal for New York. He's slated to report to the team's GCL affiliate to begin his pro career.
