Here are the details for the 2022 MLB Draft Combine

June 1st, 2022

Baseball scouts, executives and even fans will soon get a closer look at some of the best players the 2022 First-Year Player Draft has to offer.

Major League Baseball, in coordination with USA Baseball, announced key details announced that this year’s MLB Draft Combine will be held from June 14-20 at San Diego’s Petco Park. As chosen by USA Baseball and Major League organizations, 300 of the top 2022 Draft prospects will receive invites, along with 50 additional invitees.

The schedule, as announced Wednesday, will work as follows:

June 15-16: Games for high school Combine participants
June 16-17: Strength and performance assessments
June 17-18: Pro-style showcase workouts

There is also a medical evaluation process that players can opt into at the Combine. As laid out in the new collective bargaining agreement, any of the Top 300 prospects who submit to a pre-Draft physical must be offered at least 75 percent of the slot value at their pick. More details, including further activities and the official roster of participants, are coming next week.

Invited players who choose to participate in this year’s Combine won’t just get to show off their skills in front of Draft decision-makers from all 30 clubs. They’ll also get to interact with a Hall of Famer in Trevor Hoffman; several multi-time All-Stars like Torii Hunter, Eric Davis, Mike Cameron, Dante Bichette and Charles Nagy and former managers/execs in Jerry Manuel, Bo Porter, Mike Scioscia and Omar Minaya.

This year’s edition of the Combine also comes with a new wrinkle for fans. The June 17 session is open to the public from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. local time and is free to those with a ticket. Fans can claim up to four tickets at a time. More information can be found at

For those who can't visit Petco for the showcase, there will be complete coverage and analysis of the event on both MLB Network and

Last year’s first-ever Combine, which took place in North Carolina, featured future No. 1 overall pick Henry Davis alongside fellow Top 100 prospect Ricky Tiedemann and other high picks like Benny Montgomery (eighth overall), Sam Bachman (ninth overall) and Colson Montgomery (22nd overall) among the 167 participants.

The Draft itself is scheduled to take place almost exactly one month after this year’s Combine and will also be in Southern California from July 17-19 in Los Angeles.

The 2022 first round is expected to be especially bat-heavy with hitters making up 13 of MLB Pipeline’s top 200 Draft prospects. Prep sluggers Druw Jones, Elijah Green, Jackson Holliday and Termarr Johnson continue to be some of the biggest names to follow as we turn toward the summer. In his latest mock draft, Jim Callis had 12 straight hitters at the top of the first round, and that would represent a first in the Draft’s history dating back to 1965. Perhaps a solid (and healthy performance) at the Combine could allow a pitcher to break that narrative by July.
