ProspectsLive has the Braves taking an Alabama pitcher in their latest 2022 Mock Draft

Vaughn Grissom call up

ProspectsLive has the Braves taking an Alabama pitcher in their latest 2022 Mock Draft – The MLB Draft is getting closer, and rumors surrounding the Braves are heating up. When you examine Alex Anthopoulos’ strategy in years prior, I wouldn’t be shocked to see the Braves select a college player. Alabama lefty Connor Prielipp fits that mold.

Does the idea work?

I like the idea of Prielipp, but with Cooper Hjerpe going with the next pick, I’d probably prefer the latter. Here’s what Jim Doyle had to say about the selection:

Susac is still on the board here, and that shouldn’t be brushed over. I haven’t heard the Braves attached to the Arizona backstop, but most don’t expect him here at this juncture either. Regardless, it’s mostly college arms with Prielipp, Bennett, Whisenhunt and Hjerpe; all lefties.

Braves taking an Alabama pitcher?

Daniel Susac is also an interesting choice, especially considering how depleted the Braves are at catcher in their system. Susac is a projected top ten pick, so in this scenario, I’d be happy with any of the three guys I mentioned. We’ve seen Anthopoulos and Company crush the draft, so I’m not too concerned with them calling the shots.
