The Yankees just passed along a press release announcing that their top
pick in this year’s draft has been named MVP of the GCL…

The Gulf Coast League today announced that Dante Bichette Jr., who hit .342 and led the league with 47 RBIs, 67 hits and 17 doubles has been named its Most Valuable Player. Bichette, who also excelled in the field for the Yankees by leading all third baseman with a .945 fielding percentage, headlines the 11-man Gulf Coast League All-Star Team.

Shortstop Jose Rosario and catcher Isaias Tejeda join Bichette from the league champion Yankees on the all-star team. Carlos Mendoza, who skippered them to the GCL title, is the Manager of the Year.
