Top 150 college baseball prospects in the 2022 MLB Draft

Peyton Graham joined elite company — with Barry Bonds! — after huge MCWS game

We’ve had several changes since our mid-season ranking in April for the top 150 college baseball prospects in the 2022 MLB Draft, but there is consistency at the top with Brooks Lee, Daniel Susac and Kevin Parada. Virginia Tech’s Gavin Cross moves up one to No. 4, while Jacob Berry falls two to No. 6.

Oklahoma right-handed pitcher Cade Horton made the biggest jump of anyone since the midseason rankings. The Sooner right-hander lands at No. 12 overall, as he was just getting it going after Tommy John surgery in February of 2021 and was unranked at midseason. For the full scoop on Horton, please see last week’s top rising CWS prospects.

Other big-time risers include another Sooner, shortstop Peyton Graham who jumps from No. 41 to No. 14, Louisville catcher Dalton Rushing (No. 63 to No. 29), Vanderbilt outfielder Spencer Jones (No. 90 to No. 32) and Auburn closer Blake Burkhalter who jumps from unranked to No. 45. Burkhalter was another postseason riser, showing a fastball up to 97 mph with an obscene cutter and plus change.
