Yankees Draft: 15th Round - Tyler Molinaro RF

B/T: L/R

Tyler Molinaro is out of Pittsburgh Community College.  He played in the junior college ranks for two seasons.  He was recruited to play at University of North Carolina Wilmington.  Hopefully he plays in the Yankees system instead.

The intro post for UNCW had this to say about him:
Tyler Molinaro (Charlottesville, Va./Pitt CC) started for National Junior College World Series participant and Region X champion Pitt Community College as a freshman and responded with an impressive season in which he hit .360 with eight doubles, nine home runs and compile a .667 slugging percentage.  Molinaro played at Albemarle High School in Charlottesville, Va., where he hit .447 with 10 homers and drove in 33 runs. "Tyler has gained experience at the junior college level while playing for coach Tommy Eason at Pitt. He's used his time at Pitt to develop into a strong collegiate hitter and has become a good defensive outfielder."

In the 2010 season he had a very solid season.  He hit .344 with 9 HR, 38 RBIs, and 47 runs in 46 games.  I'm not sure where the above post got their stats aka the .360 average but I found the ones above off the Pittsburgh CC baseball webpage.

Then he had his coming out party in 2011.  He lead the team in average, HR, RBI, and runs scored.  His line looked like .396 average, 15 HR, 53 RBIs, and 60 runs in 49 games played.  That means he averaged more than a RBI and run per game.
