'Dogs Judge Drafted By Yankees

FRESNO, Calif.

After being drafted in the first round by the Yankees, that could become a reality in a few years.

"I was hoping," the 6-foot-7 outfielder out of Fresno State said. "Everyone wants to be a Yankee, so I was happy to hear my name called."

Judge was on site at MLB Network Studios and went 32nd overall to the Yankees, who had three first-round picks - more than any other team. They also chose Notre Dame third baseman Eric Jagielo at No. 26 and capped the opening round by taking California high school lefty Ian Clarkin at No. 33.

Judge won the 2012 College Home Run contest and the Junior Outfielder led Fresno State in every offensive statistical category in 2013 for the 'Dogs.
