Yankees Sign Five Undrafted College Pitchers

In a year when it becomes more and more questionable as to whether we will get to see Major League Baseball, the most exciting action occurred last week when the Draft was held. Much like the 2020 season, this draft was also drastically shortened, as MLB switched to a shorter draft.

Now, as we wait to see what happens with the season, the Yankees are continuing to build their farm system. Over the last few days, the Yankees have signed five undrafted college pitchers. They are all righties, and I believe they each received the $20,000 maximum signing bonus. Here is a quick look at these newest signings.


Carson Coleman University of Kentucky A top reliever for Kentucky, Coleman has particularly shined in the Cape Cod League. He had a 5-5 record with a 4.19 ERA. In 53.2 innings pitched, hie struck out 81 and walked just 31. Coleman was drafted by Tampa Bay in the 33rd Round of the 2019 Draft, but returned to Kentucky.

Jarod Lessar Brigham Young University It wasn’t a hard decision for Lessar, when his favorite team came calling. The Alex Rodriguez fan made 24 starts for BYU with a 4.43 ERA, 59 strikeouts and 22 walks in 65 innings.


Ocean Gabonia Everett CC (Wash.) The Hawaii native played for Everett CC in Washington, going 0-2 with a 2.40 ERA. He threw 15 innings and struck out 23 and walked seven.

Trevor Holloway University of Central Floria Over the 2019-2020 seasons, Holloway went 5-1 with a 1.64 ERA. Over 49.1 innings pitched, he held opposing batters to a .166 batting average, picking up 66 Ks.


Connor Pellerin Tulane In 55 collegiate appearances, the Baton Rouge pitcher went 4-4 with a 5.67 ERA. He picked up 94 Ks in 74.2 innings, allowing 75 walks.

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
