Major League Baseball’s 2022 Draft drew to a close on Tuesday after three days, 20 rounds and 616 picks. The action all started on Sunday, when the Baltimore Orioles selected Jackson Holliday, Matt’s son and an Oklahoma prep shortstop, with the No. 1 pick.

To send off the 2022 draft the right way, we’ve elected to provide a brief overview of every team’s class.
