Thursday night, the Bombers closed out its class by picking right-hander Beck Way out of Northwest Florida State Junior College. The 20-year-old hurler popped up on the radar of big-league scouts during the Cape Cod League this past summer. 

Earlier in the evening, the Yankees selected Arizona State's Trevor Hauver with the organization's third-round pick (99th overall). Hauver, listed at second base, played the majority of his college career in the outfield.

Here's what you need to know about Hauver right now:

Hauver joins catcher Austin Wells from the University of Arizona in New York's 2020 MLB Draft class thus far. New York's first-round pick Wells is a familiar face – picked by New York in the 2018 MLB Draft out of high school – and boasts a potent left-handed bat.

Here's more on Wells and the Yankees' first-round selection:

In a shortened format, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Yankees only made three picks across five rounds. When New York signed ace Gerrit Cole, the organization forfeited its second- and fifth-round picks.
