By signing CC Sabathia, the Yankees will lose their first-round pick in the draft to the Brewers.

However … the compensation picks they received for not signing Gerrit Cole (first round) and Scott Bittle (second round) are protected picks. So no matter what happens, the Yankees will have a pick in each of the first two rounds in June.

Meanwhile, we’re meeting with Brian Cashman in a few minutes. Check back later.
