Reds 2022 Draft signings tracker

July 27th, 2022

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

Each club has until 5 p.m. ET 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.


July 26 -- As of Tuesday, the Reds had signed all of their Draft selections except for their 18th and 19th rounders

Total bonus pool: $10,799,700

MLB rank: 7

1 (18): Cam Collier, 3B, Chipola College $5,000,000 -- (Pick value: $3,659,800)
Collier, who reclassified from 2023, enrolled at Chipola Junior College in Florida to be ready for this year’s Draft. He was the first JUCO hitter drafted in the first round since the White Sox took Tim Anderson 17th overall in 2013.

1C (32): Sal Stewart, 3B, Westminster Christian School (Fla.) -- $2,097,500 (Pick value: $2,373,000)
The Reds liked Stewart’s combination of hitting and power, especially after seeing him against advanced competition on the showcase circuit. Stewart also benefited from having some big league help from fellow South Floridians in his corner. Former Red and recently retired first baseman Yonder Alonso and Padres star Manny Machado are both mentors to him.

2 (55): Logan Tanner, C, Mississippi State -- $1,030,500 (Pick value: $1,374,000)
Tanner, the No. 41 ranked Draft prospect, was the starting catcher for the Bulldogs’ College World Series title in 2021 and batted .285/.387/.425 with seven home runs and 38 RBIs in 55 games during his junior season in ’22. He offers some power with his bat, and the organization likes his advanced defensive skills as well.

CBB (73): Justin Boyd, OF, Oregon State -- $850,000 (Pick value: $901,300)
Boyd, who agreed to terms on July 22, was liked by the Reds, in part because he’s played multiple positions. He was selected as a center fielder, but because he had a teammate in front of him at OSU, he had to play all three outfield spots and some infield. Reds scouts liked his versatility and athleticism.

3 (94): Bryce Hubbart, LHP, Florida State -- $522,500 (Pick value: $649,900)
The Reds agreed to terms with Hubbart on July 22. He is a three-pitch lefty and can get swing-and-miss from hitters despite not having high velocity.

4 (123): Kenya Huggins, RHP, Chipola College -- $407,500 (Pick value: $488,300)
Huggins, who the Reds signed on July 22, was a fourth rounder in 2022 after not being drafted out of high school in 2021. He went to Chipola to get more chances to pitch and was teammates with the Reds' No. 18 overall pick Cam Collier. He has a power arm and a plus-slider, but the organization acknowledged the 19-year-old will likely need more development time.

5 (153): Cade Hunter, C, Virginia Tech -- $364,600 (Pick value: $364,600)

6 (183): Zach Maxwell, RHP, Georgia Tech -- $222,500 (Pick value: $279,700)

7 (213): Trey Faltine, SS, Texas -- $200,000 (Pick value: $219,000)

8 (243): Chris McElvain, RHP, Vanderbilt -- $178,200 (Pick value: $178,200)

9 (273): Rob Hensey, LHP, Monmouth -- $47,500 (Pick value: $160,400)

10 (303): Brody Jessee, RHP, Gonzaga -- $132,500 (Pick value: $151,500)

11 (333): Ben Brutti, RHP, South Kingstown HS (RI)

12 (363): Mason Pelio, RHP, Boston College -- $125,000

13 (393): Johnathan Harmon, RHP, Northwestern State -- $125,000

14 (423): Jared Lyons, RHP, George Mason

15 (453): Adam Serwinowski, LHP, Eastside HS (SC) -- $125,000

16 (483): Trey Braithwaite, RHP, West Virginia -- $100,000

17 (513): Easton Sikorski, RHP, Western Michigan -- $75,000

18 (543): Mason Neville, OF, Basis HS (NV)
Has not agreed to terms

19 (573): Tyler Chadwick, RHP, Iowa Western CC
Has not agreed to terms

20 (603): Joseph Menefee, LHP, Texas A&M -- $125,000

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.
