2022 MLB Draft: Kevin Kilpatrick, 515th Overall, Atlanta Braves

One of the unquestionable successes of the first-ever Pre-Draft Combine for the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series held in 2021, Kevin Kilpatrick heard his name called on the third day of the 2022 MLB Draft, going with the 515th overall pick to the Atlanta Braves.

PICK ANALYSIS BY JEREMY BOOTH, CEO AND PRESIDENT OF THE NEW BALANCE BASEBALL FUTURE STARS SERIES: Always exciting when you get an 80 makeup kid, that’s a steal in the 17th round. I think he’s a good kid who’s got some production and the type of guy who finds his way to the big leagues because of pure will, even without a plus, standout playable tool. But, he hits enough, plays defense enough, runs enough, throws enough. It’s all enough. At-bats are going to get him to the big leagues, and production.
