With the 567th overall pick in the 2022 MLB Draft, the Detroit Tigers selected pitcher Albert Oliva, becoming the last of the 30 MLB teams to take an alumni of the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series over the last five years of the draft.
Oliva was at a regional combine in Puerto Rico back in 2019.
PICK ANALYSIS BY JEREMY BOOTH, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE FUTURE STARS SERIES: Has really matured and grown into his body. Arm strength and feel for what he does has take a big jump through his work and natural progression. Those type of guys show up in the ML at some point, so the Tigers taking a chance makes sense. originally seen by Rafael Santo Domingo and Noel Sevilla.
