Rounding out the group is Wells, a punching catcher who has actually blasted 36 crowning achievement over his 2 professional seasons because he was prepared by the Yankees in the preliminary of the 2020 draft. Wells, a left-handed player, invested the majority of 2022 at the Double-A level, however at 23 years of ages, he might wind up seeing major league action this season if the Yankees sustain any injuries at catcher.
