In MLBPipeline’s latest Mock Draft, Jim Callis name drops a few players the Braves have talked to leading up to the 2022 MLB Draft.

The Braves get linked to several college pitchers, including Hjerpe, Campbell, Gonzaga right-hander Gabriel Hughes and Campbell righty Thomas Harrington.

We’ve seen the Braves heavily target college talent in the draft, especially pitchers. This strategy has paid dividends recently; Bryce Elder and Spencer Strider have both made quick impacts, Jared Shuster is ascending through the minors, and Ryan Cusick was a big piece of the Matt Olson trade. I had the Braves taking Tennessee arm Blade Tidwell, but one thing’s for sure, they’ve done their homework on college pitching.
