Forty Pac-12 student-athletes were selected in the 2022 MLB Draft this week, with at least one chosen in 18 of 20 rounds.

Nine of the Pac-12's 11 baseball programs produced at least one pick, while eight produced two or more.

Oregon State led all Pac-12 schools with eight draft picks, the most the program has ever produced in the first 20 rounds of the draft. Among them was left-hander Cooper Hjerpe, who was selected in the first round (22nd overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals.

Arizona State, California and Stanford tied for the second-most picks in the Pac-12, producing six apiece.

Arizona catcher Daniel Susac was the Pac-12's other first-round pick, going 19th overall to the Oakland Athletics, the highest a Wildcat has been selected since Kevin Newman was chosen 19th overall in the 2015 MLB Draft.
