2022 wasn’t fun in the standings for Kansas City fans, but in the long arc of time, 2022 was a good year for the organization. MJ Melendez, Vinnie Pasquantino and Brady Singer all emerged as first-division starters. Melendez even looks like a functional defensive outfielder. Bobby Witt Jr. is also here and good. Needs work on the approach but who doesn’t. Every season brings them closer to the post-Dozier era, which is only addition by subtraction because the team insists he’s an everyday player. New Manager Matt Quataro figures to come in like a kind wind after years with Mike Matheny. Might be some playing-time surprises in our near future.Please, blog, may I have some more?

Omaha, Nebraska. The Promised Land. The pride of college baseball. Just think of the smell of fresh ballpark cuisine, the sound of countless bodies rummaging excitingly through the turnstiles, and thousands of sweaty Nebraskans barraging to their seats, mixed in with fans from all across the globe. Ahh, yes. That’s what it’s all about. The Good Life. That and the approximately 300 college baseball players who have made it to the ultimate destination that the sport has to offer. Here at Razzball, we’ve already ranked 30 college prospects for the 2022 MLB Draft, but there’s a handful of future big-league talent going at it in Omaha as we speak. Some of these individuals may be eliminated from the competition before this piece drops on Thursday, but as it stands today, here are five prospects in Omaha that you should be locked in on as you compose your first-year player draft boards.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ahh!!! Hobbs doesn’t have any arms!!! They must have been chopped off by one of the local youths’ high-powered drones! Wait, wait, wait. Slow down there, partner. Even though only one arm made the top 10 and only two snuck into the top 14, that doesn’t mean I’m completely armless. After all, I did book a finger-modeling gig just yesterday, and I’m writing today’s top-20 college prospects piece with not one, but TWO upper body appendages, so take that! While it is true that only three pitchers cracked the top 15, three of the five spots in the 16-20 range are filled by college hurlers. With that, there are also two right-handed bats after just three cracked the top 15. Long story short: As we trudge deeper into the 2022 college draft class, the prospect talent is beginning to become more multidimensional, which is what front offices and fantasy owners alike love to see. By the end of this post, you’ll be far more educated for your first-year player drafts, and I’ll be found on a nearby sidewalk corner with five juggling arms making $17 an hour as a street performer. Here are the top 20, with the No. 16 spot being one of the players with the highest upside in the entire class.Please, blog, may I have some more?
