Day 2 of the 2022 MLB Draft is moments away, and the Baltimore Orioles find themselves back on the clock again. 

The Orioles made a big splash on Day 1, selecting shortstop Jackson Holliday first overall. He is the son of seven-time All-Star outfielder Matt Holliday.

Baltimore didn’t stop there Sunday night. The team also selected outfielder Dylan Beavers (33rd overall), third baseman Max Wagner (42nd overall) and outfielder Jud Fabian (via Miami Marlins).

The Chicago Cubs were another Day 1, selecting two pitchers, Cade Horton (7th overall) and Jackson Ferris (47th overall) that are expected to help replenish a franchise that has hit the reset at the start of the decade. 

 

The Cubs’ Windy City neighbors, the Chicago White Sox, also made a splash grabbing two pitchers Noah Shultz (26th overall) and Peyton Pallette (62nd overall).

The Philadelphia Phillies landed outfielder Justin Crawford (17th overall), who is the son of former four-time All-Star outfielder Carl Crawford

The Boston Red Sox added  shortstop Mikey Romero (24th overall), shortstop Cutter Coffey (compensation pick) and outfielder Roman Anthony (compensation pick).

 

Action for Monday’s coverage will feature rounds 3-10 with a lot of hot talent left to select from.

Here’s everything you need to know about the highly-anticipated event in Los Angeles:

Which team did the best on day one of the MLB Draft?

The Orioles did the best in Round 1 of the MLB Draft.

The team acquired No. 2 Draft prospect Jackson Holliday, a shortstop from Stillwater High (Stillwater, Okla.)

The 18-year-old possesses incredible speed and power, making him a valuable selection for Baltimore.

The Diamondbacks landed No. 1 Druw Jones, an outfielder from Wesleyan High (Norcross, Ga.)

While Jones was expected to be the top pick, there are components of his game that aren’t as polished as Holliday’s.

Jones thrives with his explosivity and has some of the best power and speed in the high-school class. He will also bring phenomenal defense to Arizona.

When is day three of the MLB Draft?

Day three of the 2022 MLB Draft is on Tuesday, July 19 at 2 p.m. ET.

It will feature rounds 11-20.

What are the MLB Draft slot values in 2022?
