Rhymes has been drafted twice in the past, each time improving his position. In 201 the Pirates made him their 40th-round selection after his first season at LSU. Last year the Yankees drafted him in the 30th round.
Prior to joining LSU, Rhymes was named the 2010 Division II National Junior College Player of the Year after leading LSU-Eunice to a Division II JUCO national championship.
