Baseball America’s draft rankings are compiled in consultation with MLB scouts. This list is an attempt to gauge the industry’s consensus on the draft-eligible high school talent for the 2022 draft class. 

With the 2021 summer showcase season now complete, we’re rolling out our updated rankings for the 2022 draft class.

Unlike a year ago, the summer has largely gone smoothly with events taking place around the country and players and evaluators alike being able to travel without restriction around the country.

Georgia infielder Termarr Johnson takes the top spot in the class, thanks to one of the more impressive hit tools scouts have seen in recent years and excellent performance at seemingly every event he’s attended.

Outfielders Elijah Green and Druw Jones and third baseman Jayson Jones are the other position players who round out the top 10, and each brings exciting upside offensively with potential to play a valuable defensive position.

While the top player in the class is a hitter, scouts are talking about the 2022 class as the year of the high school pitcher. Six pitchers rank among the top 10 players in the class, led by righthanders Dylan Lesko and Brock Porter, but also featuring lefthanders Jackson Ferris, Brandon Barriera, Noah Schultz and Tristan Smith.

Brief reports and bio information are included with every player ranked below.

    Elijah Green

    IMG Academy, Bradenton, Fla. OF
    Notes:

    Ht: 6-3 | Wt: 225 | B-T: R-R
    Commit/Drafted: Miami
    Age At Draft: 18.6

    Green has professional bloodlines—his father Eric played in the NFL for 10 years—and is one of the more physical prep hitters scouts have seen with a muscular, 6-foot-3, 225-pound frame. He has impressive power, speed and defensive tools in center field and a track record of hitting as an underclassman. While Green has a sound approach at the plate, there is some swing and miss in his game—but his upside is significant. Green is committed to Miami.
