2023 MLB DRAFT: Roc Riggio, 2B — Oklahoma State

Once one of the darlings of the travel ball circuit, Roc Riggio has done well to improve his stock at Oklahoma State. A First-Team Freshman All-American last year, the 5-foot-9, 180 pound sparkplug picked up where he left off this year, upping his numbers in every major statistical category, including batting average (.335), home runs (18), RBI (61) and OBP (.461).

FSS Event History: Riggio’s stay at the 2020 National Combine was cut short due to injury, although he impressed staff in attendance by wanting to play through it. Regardless, he earned an invite to the Main Event later that year, where he reached base in each of the three games, including an impressive RBI double off of Anthony Solometo in Game 2 at Fenway Park.

Current Ranking in Joe Doyle’s FSS Plus Top 600: 159

Joe Doyle on Riggio:

Riggio was a popular name in draft circles in 2021, so much so that the Brewers took a chance and selected him in the 11th round. They didn’t end up having the bonus pool necessary to secure his commitment. He’ll be a key cog for Oklahoma State moving forward . He’s a powderkeg package at the plate with a solid feel for hit and unexpected punch if pitchers hang a mistake. He’s a solid defender on the infield, though his versatility may end up best served in the outfield. There’s a little bit of Kaden Polcovich in Riggio, a 4th round pick out of Oklahoma State by the Mariners in 2020.
