Where each Longhorn landed in the 2022 MLB Draft

·2 min read

The 2022 Major League Baseball Draft came to a conclusion on Tuesday afternoon.

Texas baseball was well represented through the 20 rounds on the draft. Eight Longhorns were selected this year, Gold Spikes Award Winner Ivan Melendez was the first off the board in the second round.

Four members of the Texas 2022 signing class heard their named called over the past three days. Cutter Coffey, Henry Bolte, Brenner Cox and Wyatt Cheney will likely turn pro over suiting up in the Burnt Orange.

Texas’ eight draft picks ranked fourth among college programs behind a few Big 12 and SEC schools.

David Pierce’s roster is going to have a much different look next season. Pitcher Lucas Gordon and outfielder Dylan Campbell return as key contributors from the 2022 team. Texas has already landed a few transfers to replace the slew of players headed out the door.

Here is where all eight Longhorns landed in the 2022 MLB Draft.

1B Ivan Melendez, Round Two (Pick No. 43)

LHP Pete Hansen, Round Three (Pick No. 97)

C Silas Ardion, Round Four (Pick No. 107)

OF Douglas Hodo, Round Six (Pick No. 167)

SS Trey Faltine, Round Seven (Pick No. 213)

UTL Murphy Stehly, Round 10 (Pick No. 291)

RHP Jared Southard, Round 12 (Pick No. 358)
