Yankees seek deal with seventh rounder

Kyle Higashioka, the California high school catcher taken in the seventh round last week, has told the Yankees it will take $500,000 to get him to sign and pass on a scholarship to California.

Higashioka was the first player they took on the second day of the draft, so you have to assume Damon Oppenheimer knew in advance what it would take to sign him.

Scouting reports on Higashioka say he’s a good defensive catcher with a chance to hit for power once he gets some coaching.
