The 2022 Major League Baseball first-year player draft is taking place July 17–19 in Los Angeles, California.

The draft is 20 rounds and is televised by MLB Network.

Tennessee junior right fielder Jordan Beck was selected by Colorado in the second round (No. 38 overall).

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Beck recorded 18 home runs, 61 RBIs, 70 runs, 75 hits, 15 doubles, three triples, 37 walks and six stolen bases in 66 games during the 2022 season at Tennessee.

Beck played 16 games as a freshman in 2020, making 10 starts for the Vols. The 2020 season ended prematurely due to the coronavirus pandemic after 17 games.

He played in 67 games, while making 66 starts as a sophomore in 2021. The Vols finished 50-18, winning the Southeastern Conference East division, and advancing to the College World Series.
