Q&A with Yankees 48th Round Pick Wes Benjamin

Benjamin has a commitment to Univ. of Kansas

The Yankees selected left-handed pitcher Wes Benjamin in the 48th round out of St. Charles East High School in Illinois. He sat down with us for a Q&A session to talk about being drafted by the Yankees, which big league player he most resembles, if he's looking to sign quickly, and a whole lot more. Tell us what is going through your mind after being selected by a team like the Yankees. Wes Benjamin: Definitely an honor to be selected by such a prestigous team. You know, I didn't know whether or not I was going to get drafted, so it was a relief to get the phone call. It's something I'm proud of, I'm excited, and something that gets my career to get moving forward... Recommended Stories
