The Yankees are inviting their first-round pick from the 2019 MLB Draft to major league spring training.

Anthony Volpe was taken with the 30th overall pick out of Delbarton High School, and is making the trip to Lakeland, Fla. to face the Detroit Tigers. Other notables making the trip for Sunday's game include Brett Gardner, Gary Sanchez, and Tyler Wade.

Baseball America ranks the 18-year old infielder as the Yankees' sixth-best prospect, while MLB Pipeline lists him as the organization's ninth-best.
