BALTIMORE -- Willie Randolph and Andy Cannizaro will serve as the Yankees' representatives for the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, which begins on June 6.

Randolph spent the majority of his 18-year big league playing career with the Yankees, appearing in pinstripes for 13 seasons as a sure-handed second baseman from 1976-88.

A six-time World Series champion as a player and also as a Yankees coach under manager Joe Torre, Randolph moved into the manager's chair across town with the Mets from 2005-08.

Cannizaro was a seventh-round Draft selection of the Yankees in 2001. The infielder played for seven seasons in New York's farm system, receiving a callup to "The Show" in 2006 and appearing in 13 games.
