2022 MLB Draft: Prep bat Logan Wagner headlines Dodgers’ draftees in Rounds 6-10

Logan Wagner.

The Dodgers went with athleticism in Rounds 6-10 of the draft. They also nabbed their first prep player, who’s likely to be an over-slot signee.

Round 6, No. 195 overall: SS/3B Logan Wagner, P27 Academy (S.C.)

Wagner will end up being the Dodgers’ over-slot signee in the first 10 rounds. The big switch-hitter is a bat-first prospect who probably isn’t a shortstop at the next level. He has a strong enough arm for third base and enough athleticism to handle it. He might be able to get some time at second base, too.

Round 7, No. 225 overall: RHP/SS Christopher Campos, St. Mary’s

Listed as a shortstop, it seems the Dodgers are either going to employ Campos as a 2-way player or, more likely, a pitcher.

Unranked

Round 8, No. 255 overall: 2B Taylor Young, Louisiana Tech

Young, almost 24, is going to be your classic, money-saving, senior sign. He spent five years at La Tech and hit .364/.506/.644 in Conference USA.

Rankings
Baseball America: 399

Round 9, No. 285 overall: LHP Brandon Neeck, University of Virginia

Neeck is a multi-inning relief prospect who has average stuff. He’s most known for striking out 16 players in 5 2/3 innings of relief earlier this season. He has dealt with shoulder injuries in the past.

Rankings
Prospects Live: 447

Round 10, No. 315 overall: C Simon Reid, Westmont College

Not a ton on Reid, as he came from a small school and there isn’t a lot of info out there on him. He should be an easy sign.

Unranked

The draft will conclude on Tuesday with Rounds 11 through 20.
