The Yankees drafted New Jersey left-hander Evan DeLuca (Immaculata High in Somerville) in the 44th round. The MLB-suggested bonus for a pick that low is pretty much a bus ticket and a bag lunch.

The Yankees gave him $500,000 to sign according to Baseball America. The commissioner’s office will be real pleased with that. DeLuca has been planning to attend San Diego State before the windfall.

Based on BA’s list, the Yankees invested well over $6 million in draft picks this season.
