2012 MLB Draft Results: New York Yankees Select High Schooler Nathan Mikolas In Round 3

The New York Yankees selected outfielder Nathan Mikolas (Bradford High School, WI) with the 124th pick in the third round of the 2012 MLB Draft on Tuesday.

Mikolas, a 6-foot, 200-pound outfielder, bats and throws with his left hand. A full scouting report of Mikolas follows, courtesy of PerfectGame.org.

Nathan Mikolas is a 2012 OF/1B with a 6-2 200 lb. frame from Kenosha, WI who attends Bradford HS. Medium frame, strong build, long levers. Bat stands out, quality left handed hitter. Tall stance, simple swing, quick hands, aggressive swing, ball jumps off his bat. Good bat speed, some length in back, starts with hands low and back, loads with hips, good extension through the baseball, showed good present power. Patient hitter, almost picky at times, has a plan in the box. Pullside approach, looks to do damage when he swings. Can make a few tweaks to improve swing but polished for a Wisconsin high school prospect, high level bat. Good student. Signed with Louisville.

2012 MLB Draft: New York Yankees Select Austin Aune, Peter O'Brien In Round 2

The New York Yankees selected centerfielder Austin Aune and catcher Peter O'Brien, respectively, with the 89th and 94th picks in the second round of the 2012 MLB Draft on Tuesday.

Aune played for Argyle High School in Texas last season. O'Brien caught for the University of Miami.

Their scouting reports follow, courtesy of MLB.com's Draft Tracker:

Austin Aune, 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, CF, L/R

A two-sport star in high school, Aune has the ability to make it in either football or baseball. A potential five-tool player, Aune bats lefty and has potential plus power. He has good range at shortstop and a great arm, but some scouts think that a move to the outfield could be in his near future. Aune could potentially play center field at the next level, especially because of his great speed and arm. Although a bit raw, Aune's upside and great makeup should allow the toolsy outfielder to be picked in the early going of the Draft.

Peter O'Brien, 6-4, 225 pounds, C, R/R

This is a bit of a do-over for O'Brien, who entered the 2011 season as a strong catching prospect at Bethune-Cookman, but he decided not to sign after being drafted in the third round by the Rockies, instead transferring to Miami for his senior season. He's been more consistent with the Hurricanes, showing the kind of offensive ability most thought they'd see when 2011 began. He drives the ball to all fields and has above-average to plus raw power. He's not a bad runner for the position. His arm has always been a plus and he's shown some improvement behind the plate as well with decent hands and agility for someone his size. College catchers, especially with this kind of offensive potential, often do well on Draft day and it seems that O'Brien's decision to spend one more year in college may work to his advantage.
