Day 2 Of 2022 MLB Draft: Alex Freeland, Nick Biddison & Complete List Of Dodgers Selections For Rounds 3-10

The Los Angeles Dodgers only had one pick in the first 100 selections of the 2022 MLB Draft, and selected University of Louisville catcher Dalton Rushing at No. 40 overall.

The Dodgers only had one selection within the first two rounds of the Draft as a result of their first pick dropping 10 spots and forfeiting their second- and fifth-highest selections because the club exceeded the luxury tax threshold during the 2021 season.

Furthermore, the Dodgers’ bonus pool of $4.2 million ranks last among all 30 teams. Bonus pools are calculated by adding the slot values of every pick through the first 10 rounds.

The 2022 MLB Draft continued on Monday with the Dodgers selecting eight more players during rounds Nos. 3 through 10.

Dodgers MLB Draft summary

Round 3: Alex Freeland, 105th pick

With their first pick to open Day Two of the draft, the Dodgers selected shortstop Alex Freeland out of the University of Central Florida. The switch-hitter batted .282/.419/.570 this past season with 11 home runs. Across his collegiate career, he’s hit .285/.409/.485 with 18 homers.

Round 4: Nick Biddison, 135th pick

With their next pick, the Dodgers added an outfielder from Virginia Tech University in Nick Biddison. The right-handed hitter batted .351/.434/.598 with 14 home runs and 21 stolen bases last season and he is a career .310/.422/.529 hitter. Biddison has played every position on the field except shortstop and pitcher.

Round 5: Sean McLain, 165th pick

The Dodgers continued their run on bats by selecting Sean McLain out of Arizona State University. The right-handed hitting shortstop batted .333/.430/.458 last season and has a career .328/.410/.487 line. As a redshirt freshman in 2021, McLain recorded a 23-game hitting streak that tied him for the third-longest at ASU since 1998 with Andre Ethier’s 23-game hitting streak in 2003.

McLain’s brother Matt was selected by the Cincinnati Reds 17th overall in 2021.

Round 6: Logan Wagner, 195th pick

Logan Wagner, a shortstop out of P27 Academy, was the Dodgers’ only non-collegiate selection in within the first 10 rounds of the Draft. However, the switch-hitter may be tough to sign as he has already committed to playing for Louisville.

Wagner is unlikely to stick at shortstop long term, but projects to be a quality hitter.

Round 7: Christopher Campos, 225th pick

The Dodgers finally added a two-way player in round seven with Christopher Campos out of St. Mary’s College of California, the same school that produced Tony Gonsolin. Campos bats and throws right-handed and hit .299/.361/.373 last season while primarily playing on the left side of the infield.

On the mound, he pitched 16.2 innings with a 2.16 ERA and 23 strikeouts. The Hacienda Heights, Calif. native is also a Dodgers fan.

Round 8: Taylor Young, 255th pick

The Dodgers’ eighth-round pick was another infielder, but this time it was a primary second baseman in Taylor Young of Louisiana Tech University. The right-handed hitter batted .364/.506/.644 last season and owns a career .329/.467/.503 line.

In 2022, he set the new LA Tech games played record with 249 and broke the all-time university record with 297 hits. Young also broke his own single-season runs record with 89 and ranked first in the nation in runs scored for the second consecutive year.

Round 9: Brandon Neeck, 285th pick

L.A. finally selected a pure pitcher in round nine with Brandon Neeck out of the University of Virginia. Primarily a reliever, the southpaw threw 42.1 and struck out 57 hitters to just 19 walks with an ERA of 4.04 en route to becoming the team’s closer.

Round 10: Simon Reid, 315th pick

With their final pick of the day, the Dodgers added another left-handed hitting catcher to their system with Westmont College’s Simon Reid. He batted .378/.434/.654 with 12 home runs last season and had back-to-back seasons with an on-base plus slugging over 1.000.

Reid is also a Dodgers fan and listed 2020 World Series MVP Corey Seager as his favorite player. Reid is the brother of Chicago Cubs pitching prospect Bailey Reid.
