2022 MLB First Year Player Draft Picks No. 1-30


The 2022 MLB First Year Player Draft is underway from Los Angeles, the site of this year's All-Star Game festivities. While this year's 20-round affair is the same as last year's, the first two rounds will be on Sunday night, rather than just the first round. While the top picks were heavy on high school talent, including four of the top five selections, the first round itself was balanced between prep and collegiate players. Boston added one to the prep column, selecting Mikey Romero out of Oswego East High School in Illinois. 

Here is who each team selected with the first 30 picks in the draft.
