2022 MLB Draft: Detroit selects Jace Jung No. 12 overall

Welcome to the Detroit Tigers organization, Jace Jung.

General Manager Al Avila made the 21-year-old infielder from Texas Tech the No. 12 overall pick in the 2022 MLB Draft.

The main appeal with Jung is his bat. The lefty’s career slash line of .328/.468/.647 in the Big 12 is scintillating, and he drew more walks than strikeouts in all three of his seasons with the Red Raiders. He won the 2021 Big 12 Conference Player of the Year after slugging 21 home runs and 67 RBIs.

FanGraphs lists him as a 45 FV player and their 20th prospect in the class.
