New mock draft lists Cayden Wallace as a first day selection

·1 min read

Although Cayden Wallace’s career at Arkansas was a short one, there is no doubt that he made an impact on the Razorbacks program.

Wallace played a key role in two of Arkansas’ more memorable seasons. He played in 60 games during his freshman season, playing a role in Arkansas’ SEC Championship run. His sophomore campaign lasted 67 games and ended with a trip to the College World Series.

While at Arkansas, Wallace was an asset in every aspect of the game. At the plate, he leaves Arkansas with 30 total home runs and 104 RBI, batting for an average of .289. On the field, he teamed up with fellow Draft participants Jalen Battles and Robert Moore to form one of the best infields in College Baseball. In two seasons, Wallace committed just 11 errors, and fielded at a .956 clip.

It is easy to see why Major League Baseball clubs want Wallace to be the next key piece to their organization.

In a recent mock draft by ESPN, Wallace is projected as a second round pick by the Colorado Rockies, being selected with the 38th overall pick.

Wallace was also recently projected to be the first Razorback taken in this year’s MLB Draft by D1Baseball. Six Razorbacks were listed in D1Baseball’s top 150 college prospects rankings, with Wallace being named first, checking in at No. 19.

The Major League Baseball Draft is set to begin Sunday at 6 p.m. CDT.
