Yankees Sign First Round Draft Pick Ty Hensley

New York Yankees first round draft pick, pitcher Ty Hensley, has signed with the team according to reports. Few details have been revealed, but the deal reportedly includes a $1.2 million signing bonus.

Hensley was drafted out of high school from Oklahoma with the 30th overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft in June. Keith Law of ESPN praised Hensley for his curveball and his fastball, but said he still needs to develop his changeup and his overall command. Baseball Nation's John Sickels echoed Law, but also said that Hensley's upside is very high and that the right-hander could have gone 10-15 spots further up in the draft.

Hensley accepted a scholarship with the Mississippi Bulldogs prior to the draft and signing a contract with the Yankees.
