2022 MLB Draft Results







Round 2




Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: July 17, 2022.


  1. Los Angeles Dodgers: Dalton Rushing, C, Louisville A Grade

    The 6-1 220 lb Dalton Rushing had a .310 batting average, 23 home runs, and 16 doubles after learning under Henry Davis the first overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft. Dalton Rushing has emerged into a top 50 prospect taking everything he's learned under Henry Davis on how to be a 5-tool batter only to apply it this season in 2022.


  2. Boston Red Sox: Cutter Coffey, SS, Liberty HS (CA) F Grade

    Boston reached here. Boston has spent three consecutive first round picks on shortstops in 2020, 2021, and 2022. Now you get another shortstop here in the second round of the 2022 MLB Draft.



  3. Baltimore Orioles: Max Wagner, 3B, Clemson A+ Grade

    Baltimore adds a third baseman for depth in the second round. The 6-0 215 lb Max Wagner took off once he cracked Clemson's starting lineup at third base. Max Wagner had 27 home runs with Clemson in 2022. Max Wagner is a great prospect that Toronto can stash for the future. Matt Chapman is under contract with Toronto at third base until 2024, and Max Wagner is a player that can be called up.


  4. Arizona Diamondbacks: Ivan Melendez, 1B, Texas A Grade

    The 6-3 225 lb Ivan Melendez had a mind boggling 32 home runs as a senior first baseman with the Texas Longhorns in 2022. Ivan Mendelez won the 2022 College Baseball Player Of The Year Award.


    Arizona has Seth Beer at first baseman. Ivan Melendez is a good insurance plan at first base behind Seth Beer.



  5. Pittsburgh Pirates: Hunter Barco, P, Florida B- Grade

    The 6-4 210 lb Hunter Barco went 10-3 with a 4.01 ERA in 2021. With Friday Night Starter Tommy Mace being drafted by Cleveland, this creates an opportunity for Hunter Barco to be Florida's Friday Night Starter in 2022. Hunter Barco earned the Friday Night Starter job as expected, but he went 5-2 with a 2.50 ERA in 2022. The preseason first round prospect now looks like a late second round prospect.


    Pittsburgh gambled on Hunter Barco hoping he'd pay off for the Pittsburgh Pirates. I don't think the Pittsburgh Pirates have ever drafted a pitcher out of Florida, so this would be a first for the Pirates if they pulled this off.



  6. Washington Nationals: Jake Bennett, P, Oklahoma C Grade

    The Washington Nationals get another playoff peforrmer here. The 6-6 234 lb Jake Bennett won four of his five starts during the 2022 College World Series.


  7. Miami Marlins: Jacob Miller, P, Liberty Union HS (OH) A Grade

    The Miami Marlins draft a High School pitcher here to groom for the future. The 6-1 185 lb Jacob Melton went 6-0 with a 0.34 ERA with 94 strikeouts and 6 walks in 40 innings pitched with 1 save as a relief pitcher as well. Jacob Melton had 15 strikeouts in a regional semifinal over Ridgewood High School.



  8. Chicago Cubs: Jackson Ferris, P, IMG Academy (FL) A+ Grade

    The 6-3 185 lb Jackson Ferris had an 8-0 record 86 strikeouts and a 0.55 ERA in 10 starts in 2021 during his junior season at IMG Academy handing Philadelphia Phillies 2021 first round pick Andrew Painter, the thirteenth pick in the 2021 MLB Draft, his only defeat of the season. Jackson Ferris once again went 8-0 in 10 starts as a senior with a 1.03 ERA and 103 strikeouts.


    Jackson Ferris has a 91-mile per hour 4-seam fastball which is his signature pitch. His secondary pitch is a curveball. He's got a similar kicking motion to Tim Lincicum with a similar leg drive to Madison Bumgarner. He looks like a hybrid of Lincicum and Bumgarner on the mound which is why he's a steal for the Chicago Cubs in the second round.


  9. Minnesota Twins: Connor Prielipp, P, Alabama A Grade

    The 6-2 205 lb Connor Prielipp began the 2021 season as Alabama's Friday Night starter in February of 2021 before a season ending injury in his first start which led to Tommy John's Surgery in May of 2021. Connor Prielipp made a full recovery showcasing his fastball, slider, and changeup at the 2022 MLB Combine pitching in front of MLB scouts. The 2019 Gatorade Wisconsin High School pitcher of the Year should end up being one of the nine compensation picks in the late first round after the top 30 picks. Connor Prielipp can be a huge asset for Minnesota if he can stay healthy from this point moving forward. If Minnesota cannot turn Connor Prielipp into an MLB starter, they can always pitch him out of the bullpen which was where Prielipp excelled as a freshman before earning the number one starter role on Alabama as a true sophomore.



  10. Kansas City Royals: Cayden Wallace, 3B, Arkansas A+ Grade

    The 6-1 205 lb Cayden Wallace had 14 home runs as a freshman redshirt in 2021. Cayden Wallace had a .298 batting average, 16 home runs, and 12 stolen bases in 2022. Cayden Wallace rounded out my top 40, he's the only consensus first round prospect who fell to the second round, and Cayden Wallace gives the Royals a quality third baseman for the first time since the team had Mike Moustakas.


  11. Colorado Rockies: Jackson Cox, P, Toutle Lake HS (WA) A- Grade

    The 6-1 185 lb Jackson Cox could go anywhere between the first and third round of the 2022 MLB Draft. I gave Jackson Cox a second round grade.


    Jackson Cox absolutely dominated with Toutle Lake High School as a senior. Jackson Cox struck ut 107 of the 175 batters hs faced as a senior. He also finished the season with a 0.72 ERA. Jackson Cox only gave up 12 runs in 4 years of High School baseball with six of those runs being during Jackson Cox's freshman year.


    Jackson Cox led Toutle Lake High School to the State Championship game in Washington. JR Ritchie is still considered the best High School pitcher in the state of Washington. Both High School pitchers from the state of Washington could sneak into the first round though. Colorado gambles on Jackson Cox at this point in the second round seeing his upside.



  12. Detroit Tigers: Peyton Graham, 3B, Oklahoma A+ Grade

    Detroit got a really good value pick in teh second round with Oklahoma third baseman Peyton Graham, who I had a third round grade on. The 6-4 171 lb Peyton Graham had 11 home runs in 2021 after posting a .358 batting average in limited games prior to Covid-19 in 2020. Peyton Graham had a .335 batting average, 70 RBI's, 20 home runs, 32 stolen bases, and a .947 fielding percentage showing the ability to be a 5-tool batter while also displaying the versatility to play both third base as well as shortstop.


  13. New York Mets: Blade Tidwell, P, Tennessee A Grade

    The 6-4 207 lb Blade Tidwell is great as a reliever, but only average as a starter. New York could use a number five starter and some bullpen upgrades. Blade Tidwell had an ERA of 3.00 this season and pitched 7.2 innings in a win where he started against Alabama State.



  14. San Diego Padres: Adam Mazur, P, Iowa A+ Grade

    The Padres have three starting pitchers in contract years. Grabbing the 2022 Big 10 Pitcher of The Year in Adam Mazur may not be a bad idea for the San Diego Padres.


    The 6-2 180 lb Adam Mazur struggled in his first two seasons at South Dakota State before leaving South Dakota State to go to Iowa in the transfer portal. Adam Mazur pitched 93.2 innings pitched while having a 3.07 ERA as a sophomore redshirt at Iowa in 2022. Adam Mazur went from 88 strikeouts at South Dakota State in 2021 to 98 strikeouts with Iowa in 2022. I mocked Adam Mazur to the Padres at this exact spot which is why I love this pick.


  15. Cleveland Indians: Parker Messick, P, Florida State A+ Grade

    The 6-0 225 lb Parker Messick won ACC Freshman of the Year in 2021 after having an 8-2 record with a 3.10 ERA and 126 strikeouts in 2021. Parker Messick beat out Bryce Hubbart who many had a first round grade on in the preseason for the Friday Night starter role in 2022. Parker Messick had a 3.68 ERA going 7-5, but still managed to record 144 strikeouts in 2022.


    Parker Messick has a great floor with a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball and a 92-mile per hour 2-seam fastball. His 80-mile per hour changeup is his secondary pitch. His slider has turned into his third pitch with his curvebball being soft and needing to develop more power and velocity if he wants to pitch in the MLB.


    Cleveland already has one of the MLB's best starting rotations as well as one of the deepest farm systems for pitchers. They can take as much time as they need developing Parker Messick. Also, if you find the Cleveland Indians and Florida State Seminoles logos to be equally offensive tough shit. This is Draft Utopia not Woke Utopia.



  16. Cincinnati Reds: Logan Tanner, C, Mississippi State B Grade

    The 6-0 215 lb Logan Tanner had a career high .287 batting average and 15 home runs in 2021 when Mississippi State won the 2021 College World Series. Logan Tanner only had 7 home runs in his draft year while also seeing his batting average dip slightly to .285 in 2022.


    Cincinnati already has Tyler Stephenson their 2015 first round pick at catcher. Cincinnati also drafted Matheu Nelson at 35 in the compensation portion of the first round. Cincinnati got good value with this pick, but I feel the selection could have been used elsewhere.


  17. Oakland Athletics: Henry Bolte, CF, Palo Alto HS (CA) A+ Grade

    The 6-3 200 lb Henry Bolte had a .441 batting average, 13 home runs, 48 stolen bases, a .921 slugging percentage, 42 RBI's, and a .973 fielding pcerntage in 33 gmaes as a senior center fielder in 2022. Henry Bolte has a baseball scholarship to Texas if he doesn't want to sign with the team that drafts him as well.


    This is a fantastic pick by Oakland. Oakland may have just secured their future starting center fielder here.



  18. Atlanta Braves: Cole Phillips, P, Boerne HS (TX) B Grade

    The Braves drafted one more High School arm to groom for the future. The 6-3 200 lb Cole Phillips is one of the top High School pitchers in this draft that Atlanta can try to gamble on in the late second round.


    Cole Phillips has a 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 92-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 85-mile per hour curveball, and a 82-mile per hour changeup. His variety of pitches makes him a good choice for a starting pitcher and he'll probably get picked in the compensation part of the second round despite having Tommy John's Surgery in April.


  19. Seattle Mariners: Tyler Locklear, 3B, Virginia Commonwealth B Grade

    The 6-3 210 lb Tyler Locklear had a .402 batting average and 20 home runs with Virginia Commonwealth in 2022. This is a good selection by the Mariners to add a power hitter to compliment a contact batter like Cole Young who Seattle spent their 2022 first round pick on.



  20. St. Louis Cardinals: Brycen Mautz, P, San Diego B Grade

    The 6-3 190 lb Brycen Mautz went 10-2 with a 3.87 ERA and 129 strikeouts in 2022. Brycen Mautz was the Saturday Night starting pitcher and the number two starting pitcher on the San Diego Toreros this past season as a sophomore redshirt in 2022. St. Louis now has Cooper Hjera and Brycen Mautz as pitchers to compliment Adam Wainwright down the road, and these guys may end up succeeding Wainwright if he retires before either arm arrives in the MLB.


  21. Toronto Blue Jays: Josh Kasevich, SS, Oregon A Grade

    The 6-2 200 lb Josh Kasevich can line up anywhere in the infield at shorstop, third base, second base, or first base. Josh Kasevich had a .324 batting average and 4 home runs in 2021. Josh Kasevich had a .310 batting average and 7 home runs in 2022.


    Toronto needed another infielder prospect for their farm system. This was a fantastic value pick by the Toronto Blue Jays in the second round.



  22. New York Yankees: Drew Thorpe, P, Cal Poly A Grade

    New York drafts a College pitcher in the second round. The 6-4 195 lb Drew Thorpe won the Sunday starter job and instantly became Cal Poly's number three starting pitcher as a true freshman in 2020. Drew Thorpe became the Friday Night Starter for Cal Poly as a true sophomore where he went 6-6 with a 3.78 ERA posting 104 strikeouts in 90 1/3 innings in 2021. Drew Thorpe went 10-1 in 15 starts, pitching a minimum of 97 total pitches in each start, with a 2.32 ERA, and 149 strikeouts in those 15 starts averaging nearly 10 strikeouts per game in 2022.


    Drew Thorpe has a 93-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 91-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, and a changeup that some consider the best among every NCAA pitcher in the 2022 MLB Draft Class. Everyone talks about Brooks Lee as the face of Cal Poly, but Drew Thorpe was the face and ace of the Cal Poly Mustangs pitching rotation.


  23. Chicago White Sox: Peyton Pallette, P, Arkansas A Grade

    The 6-1 175 lb Arkansas pitcher was used as a starter on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday showing the skill set to be a number one, number two, or number three starter in an MLB rotation. That flexibility to plug him into a different role if you don't believe he can be a number one starter is why Pallette enters this season as a first round prospect. Peyton Pallette missed the 2022 season after having Tommy John's Surgery. His ceiling for a player comparison is Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler who had a good career at Vanderbilt.



  24. Milwaukee Brewers: Jacob Misiorowski, P, Crowder JC (MO) C Grade

    The 6-7 190 lb Jacob Misiorowski has a good fastball and slider, but doesn't bring much else to the table. He lacks the pitch variety to be an MLB starting pitcher despite having 139 strikeouts in 2022, he lacks the arm to be a middle reliever, and he lacks the stamina to be a set-up pitcher. All of this limits Jacob Misiorowski to a closer role until he develops a third and fourth pitch.


  25. Houston Astros: Jacob Melton, 1B, Oregon State A+ Grade

    The 6-3 208 lb Jacob Melton had a .360 batting average, 17 home runs, and 21 stolen bases as Oregon State in 2022. Jacob Melton also had a .984 fielding percentage in 2022.


    Jacob Melton has experience at center fielder, right fielder, and first baseman. Houston probably drafts him as a future first baseman even though he mainly played center fielder at Oregon State in 2022.


    I had Jacob Melton in my top 40. This is a fantastic pick for the Houston Astros here.



  26. Tampa Bay Rays: Brock Jones, CF, Stanford A+ Grade

    Tampa Bay got one of my top fifteen players this late in the second round. What a steal.


    The 6-0 197 lb Brock Jones had a .311 batting average, 18 home runs, 14 stolen bases, and 13 doubles in 2021. Brock Jones had a .324 batting average, 21 home runs, 16 stolen bases, 13 doubles, and a .990 fielding percentage in 2022. Brock Jones has the tools to be a 5-tool batter like a ton of the top ranked batters in the 2022 MLB Draft.


  27. San Francisco Giants: Carson Whisenhunt, P, East Carolina A Grade

    The 6-3 209 lb Carson Whisenhunt got suspended for the entire 2022 season for accientally taking an illegal substance. San Francisco is gambling on a top 40 player that fell to the end of the second round.



  28. Baltimore Orioles: Jud Fabian, CF, Florida A+ Grade

    The 6-1 195 lb Jud Fabian was the Boston Red Sox 2021 second round pick, but he went unsigned. Jud Fabian became the first player in Florida Gators College Baseball player since Brad Wilkerson in 1997-1998 to have back-to-back seasons with 20 home runs. Jud Fabian can blast the ball, but he cannot keep his batting average around .250 as Fabian's batting average was .239 in 2022.


    Baltimore gets an A+ grade since the Orioles got an awesome value pick. They also stole a quality player from an AL East rival which was the biggest factor and reason for me bumping their grade up from an A grade to an A+ grade.


  29. Minnesota Twins: Tanner Schobel D Grade

    The 5-10 170 lb Tanner Schobel is versatile enough to play shortstop or second baseman with hsi versatility. He got overdrafted and Minnesota has a surplus of shortstops. The versatility to move to second base is what spared the Twins from getting the third F grade in this draft.



  30. Oakland Athletics: Clark Elliott, RF, Michigan A+ Grade

    Oakland grabs a right fielder prospect for the future. The 6-0 185 lb Clark Elliott had a .334 batting average and 5 home runs in 2021. Clark Elliott had a .337 batting average, 16 home runs, 19 stolen bases, and a .972 fielding percentage in 2022. Clark Elliott has potential to be a 5-tool batter while also displaying the versatility to play anywhere in the outifeld whether its right fielder his main position, center fielder his second position, or left fielder his third position in the outfield. Clark Elliott is one of the better plug-in-play outfielders that you can find in the second round.


  31. Tampa Bay Rays: Chandler Simpson, SS, Georgia Tech C Grade

    The 6-2 170 lb Chandler Simpson is great at stealing bases. He still needs to perfect his ability to bat consistently, but his base stealing and defensive play makes him a second to third round pick making this a solid selection.



  32. Tampa Bay Rays: Ryan Cermak, 3B, Illinois State A Grade

    The 6-1 205 lb Ryan Cermak had a .284 battng average and 11 home runs as a freshman redshirt in 2021. Ryan Cermak had a .340 batting average, 19 home runs, and 12 RBI's in 2022. He's a nice third base prospect that the Rays can develop for the future.


  33. Milwaukee Brewers: Robert Moore, 2B, Arkansas A+ Grade

    The 5-9 170 lb Robert Moore is versatile enough to play anywhere in the infield at third base, shortstop, second base, or first base. His ideal position is second base though. Robert Moore also hit 16 home runs for Arkansas in 2021 despite his batting average declining from .317 as a freshman to .283 as a sophomore. Robert Moore's batting average dipped to .232. Moore only had 8 home runs in 2022 after his breakout season in 2021.


    Milwaukee got good value here. Robert Moore was once considered a first round prospect before his 2022 campaign.



  34. Cincinnati Reds: Justin Boyd, RF, Oregon State A Grade

    The 6-0 201 lb Justin Boyd had had a PAC 12 best .373 batting average while also getting 24 stolen bases. This was a fantastic pick by the Cincinnati Reds.


  35. Seattle Mariners: Walter Ford, P, Pace HS (FL) A Grade

    The 6-3 195 lb Walter Ford went 10-2 in 13 starts with an ERA of 1.00 while pitching 70.1 innings and recording 126 total strikeouts. Walter Ford reclassified as a 2022 graduate so he could enter the 2022 MLB Draft. He has his GED and wlll either end up signing with an MLB team or playing College baseball at Alabama if he chooses to explore the NCAA route.



  36. New York Mets: Nick Morabito, SS, Gonzaga College HS (DC) D Grade

    The New York Mets have drafted Kevin Parada and Jett Williams in the first round. New York also has Francisco Lindor at shortstop, so I really don't understand this pick.


  37. Atlanta Braves: Blake Burkhalter, P, Auburn A Grade

    The 6-0 204 lb Blake Burkhalter went 4-2 with a 3.69 ERA and had 16 saves with Auburn in 2022. He's gonna bolster the Atlanta Braves bullpen down the road.



  38. Toronto Blue Jays: Tucker Toman, 3B, Hammond HS (SC) A Grade

    The 6-1 190 lb Tucker Toman had a .487 batting average, 7 home runs, 27 RBI's, and an .887 slugging percentage in 2022. He was walked to first base in nearly twenty five percent of his at bats being walked 25 times in 103 at bats.


  39. Toronto Blue Jays: Caleb Doughty, 2B, LSU A+ Grade

    The 6-1 195 lb Caleb Doughty is versatile enough to play second base, shortstop, and first base. Caleb Doughty had a .308 batting average and 13 home runs in 2021. Caleb Doughty had a .298 batting average and 15 home runs in 2022.


    I had Caleb Doughty going in the late first round. This pick is a steal for the Toronto Blue Jays.



  40. Boston Red Sox: Roman Anthony, CF, Stoneman Douglas HS (FL) A Grade

    The 6-3 200 lb Roman Anthony made a big impression at the 2021 High School Baseball game in Denver, Colorado last year. Roman Anthony led Stoneman Douglas High School to back-to-back State Championships in 2021 and 2022.


    Roman Anthony is versatile enough to play left fielder, center fielder, or right fielder. Roman Anthony dominated as a senior with a .520 batting average, 10 he runs, 40 RBI's and 20 stolen bases in 2022. Roman Anthony also won the Gatorade Player Of the Year in the state of Florida.


  41. Houston Astros: Andrew Taylor, P, Central Michigan C Grade

    The 6-5 190 lb Andrew Taylor was granted a redshirt year in 2020 due to Covid-19. Andrew Taylor went 11-4 in 15 starts with a 1.81 ERRA as a freshman redshirt in 2021. Andrew Taylor didn't do as well going 8-4 in 15 starts with 3 no decisions ad a 3.21 ERA in 2022. Houston got a solid player here to wrap up the second round.
