Dodgers 2022 Draft signings tracker

August 2nd, 2022

Below is a list of every player drafted by the Dodgers.

Each club has until 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT on Monday, Aug. 1, to come to terms with its Draft selections. If a player has exhausted his collegiate eligibility, he can sign at any time up until one week prior to the next year’s Draft.

Draft-and-follow picks -- high school and junior college players selected after the 10th round who attend a two-year college after the Draft -- can sign with their selecting teams for up to $250,000 up until a week prior to the following year’s Draft.

Total bonus pool: $4,223,800
MLB rank: 30

2 (40): Dalton Rushing, C, Louisville -- $1,959,390 (Pick value: $1,951,900)
After going under slot money with three of their top four picks, the Dodgers were able to secure Rushing, giving him slightly more money than the $1,951,900 value. Despite not having a first-round pick this year, the Dodgers came away thrilled after landing Rushing at No. 40.

3 (105): Alex Freeland, SS, UCF -- $580,200 (Pick value: $582,700)
Freeland was a productive player at UCF, hitting .285 with 18 homers and 75 RBIs in college. He gives the Dodgers another shortstop prospect in the organization.

4 (135): Nick Biddison, OF, Virginia Tech -- $382,500 (Pick value: $435,200)
The Dodgers turned to many productive college players in the Draft, and Biddison was certainly a productive collegiate player. The outfielder had a breakout ‘22 season with the Hokies, setting career highs in average (.351), home runs (14) and RBIs (47).

5 (165): Sean McLain, SS, Arizona State -- $322,900 (Pick value: $325,400)
Two seasons with the Sun Devils was all the Dodgers needed to see out of the Tustin, Calif. native. McLain didn’t hit for much power in ‘22, but he finished with a .333 average, which was helped by a 23-game hitting streak.

6 (195): Logan Wagner, SS, P27 Academy (SC) -- $600,000 (Pick value: $253,400)
The Dodgers went significantly over-slot to convince Wagner to sign professionally instead of going to Louisville. At 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, Wagner has impressed scouts with his power from both sides of the plate.

7 (225): Christopher Campos, SS, St. Mary's College -- $197,500 (Pick value: $199,900)

8 (255): Taylor Young, 2B, Louisiana Tech -- $2,500 (Pick value: $169,700)

9 (285): Brandon Neeck, LHP, Virginia -- $27,500 (Pick value: $156,600)

10 (228): Simon Reid, C, Westmont College -- $2,500 (Pick value: $149,600)

11 (345): Kyle Nevin, OF, Baylor -- $397,500

12 (375): Jacob Meador, RHP, Dallas Baptist

13 (405): Chris Newell, OF, Virginia -- $147,500

14 (435): Jose Izarra, SS, Florida SouthWestern State College

15 (465): Nicolas Perez, SS, B You Academy (P.R.)

16 (495): Jared Karros, RHP, UCLA

17 (525): Payton Martin, RHP, West Forsyth HS (N.C.)

18 (555): Cameron Decker, SS, Evansville North HS (Ind.) -- $187,500

19 (585): Chris Alleyne, OF, Maryland

20 (615): Carter McCulley, SS, Pensacola Catholic HS (Fla.)
Has not agreed to terms

How bonus pools and pick values work

Each choice in the first 10 rounds comes with an assigned value, with the total for a club's selections equaling what it can spend in those rounds without incurring a penalty. If a player taken in the top 10 rounds doesn't sign, his pick's value gets subtracted from his team's pool. Clubs near the top of the Draft often spend less than the assigned value for those choices and use the savings to offer more money to later selections.

Teams that exceed their bonus pool face a penalty. Clubs that outspend their allotment by 0-5 percent pay a 75 percent tax on the overage. At higher thresholds, clubs lose future picks: a first-rounder and a 75 percent tax for surpassing their pool by more than 5 and up to 10 percent; a first- and a second-rounder and a 100 percent tax for more than 10 and up to 15 percent; and two first-rounders and a 100 percent tax for more than 15 percent.
