2022 MLB Draft Prospects: Ranking the Top 30 Prospects in the MLB Draft

Instead of breaking down the first round of the MLB Draft, we're going to list the top 30 players in the draft instead. The players drafted in the first round are all high-level players, however, the best players aren't always selected in order. Teams draft for needs and don't always select the best player on the board. A team will look at positions, dominant hands, and whether or not you're a college or high school talent. College talents will make the majors much quicker than a high school talent would, for example. Anyway, here are the top 30 prospects in the MLB draft.

T&Cs

1. Druw Jones, OF, Wesleyan School (Suwanee, Ga.)

No one is better than Druw Jones, who is the son of Andruw Jones. Every scout talks about how advanced of a hitter and field Jones is and how much of an improvement he's made over the last season. Jones is the clear-cut number one player, but teams would have to wait on him a little bit while he matures in the minors.

2. Brooks Lee, SS, Cal Poly

At Cal Poly, Lee hit .367/.476/.633 line and struck out just 8% of the time for the Mustangs. Many thought he would be in the MLB Draft in 2019, but he elected to play for his dad in Cal Poly. He didn't disappoint. It only helped his draft stock. If a team wants the most ready player in the draft, it's Lee.

3. Cam Collier, 3B, Chipola College

As a 17-year-old, in Junior College, he hit .333/.431/.525 against pitchers that were multiple years older than him. He could be another Kris Bryant or Nolan Arenado type of player.

4. Kevin Parada, C, Georgia Tech

Parada led Division I with 23 homers and walked more than he’s struck out. Offensive first catchers stick around in this league and that's what he's going to be.

5. Elijah Green, OF, IMG Academy

6. Termarr Johnson, SS, Mays High (Atlanta)

7. Jackson Holliday, SS, Stillwater (Okla.) High

They say he's got the same kind of power that his dad, Matt Holliday, had. That's enticing.

8. Gavin Cross, OF, Virginia Tech

9. Jace Jung, 2B, Texas Tech

10. Daniel Susac, C, Arizona

11. Dylan Lesko, RHP, Buford (Ga.) High

12. Brandon Barriera, LHP, American Heritage High (Plantation, Fla.)

13. Jordan Beck, OF, Tennessee

14. Sterlin Thompson, OF, Florida

15. Zach Neto, SS, Campbell

16. Chase DeLauter, OF, James Madison

I think DeLauter is starting to rise on draft boards. He's an above-average hitter and has worked a ton of walks out. He's a fast, big build-outfielder. He's got more upside than I gave him credit for in my last rankings.

17. Brock Porter, RHP, St. Mary’s Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.)

If you're looking for a pitcher who stays healthy, Porter is that guy. He throws hard and hasn't had any setbacks health-wise. That will make you feel good about selecting the right-hander.

18. Connor Prielipp, LHP, Alabama

19. Jackson Ferris, LHP, IMG Academy

20. Gabriel Hughes, RHP, Gonzaga

21. Cole Young, SS, North Allegheny High (Wexford, Pa.)

22. Justin Crawford, OF, Bishop Gorman High (Las Vegas)

Remember Carl Crawford? His son will also likely be drafted in the first round along with the other three MLB sons. He's projected to be a better player than his dad with great speed, solid defense, and a bat that should fare well in the majors.

23. Blake Tidwell, RHP, Tennessee,

24. Dylan Beavers, OF, California

25. Jacob Berry, 3B, LSU

Berry's bat is going to be fine. But he's a below-average fielder, limiting his stock because he might just be a better deisgnated hitter at the end of the day.

26. Adam Mazur, RHP, Iowa

27. Walter Ford, RHP, Pace (Fla.) High

28. Cooper Hjerpe, LHP, Oregon State

29. Drew Gilbert, OF, Tennessee

30. Jud Fabian, OF, Florida
