Since Brian O’Connor arrived in Charlottesville in 2004, Virginia Cavaliers being selected in the Major League Baseball Draft has been a regular occurrence and 2022 was no different. For the 14th time in O’Connor’s tenure, at least four Cavaliers were selected by Major League clubs.
Nate Savino got the draft started for Virginia when he was selected in Round 3, 82nd overall by the Arizona Diamondbacks. The third year lefty compiled a 6-6 record with a 3.69 in 15 starts in 2022. For his career, Savino had a 10-9 record with a 3.71 serving in Virginia’s weekend rotation.
