Arizona Diamondbacks agree to terms with 9 draft picks from 2022 class
The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to terms with nine of their selections in the 2022 MLB Draft, the team announced on Tuesday.
The signings include four of the D-backs’ highest picks.
That’s No. 2 overall pick Druw Jones and No. 34 overall selection Landon Sims, as well as the 43rd overall pick Ivan Melendez and 82nd overall selection Nate Savino.
Sims, a right-handed pitcher from Mississippi State, agreed to terms on Tuesday. Melendez, a first baseman from the University of Texas, signed like the outfielder Jones did on Saturday. Savino, a left-handed pitcher out of the University of Virginia, agreed to terms on Tuesday too.
Shortstops Andrew Pintar (BYU) and Adrian Rodriguez (Puerto Rico Baseball Academy & High School), outfielder Brett Johnson (Southern Illinois University Edwardsville), catcher David Martin (California Baptist University) and right-handed pitcher Logan Clayton (University of Houston) were the five other draft picks to agree to terms with the D-backs.
That leaves 12 unsigned 2022 draft picks as of the date of the release from the D-backs. The top selection amongst that group is right-handed pitcher Dylan Ray out of the University of Alabama, a pick in the fourth round.
