Drafted in the 2nd round (51st overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2022 (signed for $1,800,000)
Listed at 6-foot-4, 171-pounds, Graham is a lanky righthanded hitter who has done nothing but hit since he stepped foot on campus. With Graham’s steady offensive improvement that has taken place every year, his draft eligible campaign falls nothing short of excellent. Through 59 games prior to super regionals, Graham slashed .339/.420/.661 with 19 home runs, 14 doubles and 32 stolen bases. He is a bit of a free swinger, and will expand the zone at times with a strikeout rate around 20% for his career. With more of an upright stance, Graham relies on a leg kick as a timing mechanism before settling into his power position. With a loose, quick set of hands, the barrel fires through the zone with bat speed and leverage producing exit velocities up to 108 mph. Though most of his action is to the pull side, Graham has demonstrated straight away loft power as well. Contributing on the left side of the dirt in his time with the Sooners, Graham made the transition from third base to shortstop this spring. Evaluators like his athleticism and range accompanied by above average arm strength. He does have a quick first step and the instincts off the barrel needed to stick at the position, and there’s no glaring reason why he couldn’t stick at the position long term, with plenty of defensive versatility if he needs to move. Graham is an above-average runner who’s been an efficient base stealer this spring. The biggest question in his profile revolves around his body, as he’s ultra lean now and has been throughout his time at Oklahoma.
