The final day of the 2022 MLB Draft saw rounds 11 through 20 and a pair of college players from Colorado heard their names called, making that five from the State. 

First it was former Northridge HS and current Grand Canyon University outfielder, Tayler Aguilar, going to the New York Yankees in the 15th round. Six picks later to finish out the 15th round, the San Francisco Giants selected former Cherry Creek HS and current Arizona outfielder Tanner O'Tremba. 

OF Tayler Aguilar (Evans, CO) - Yankees, Round 15 (460)

Aguilar attended a pair of Preseason All-State events in 2018 and 2019 as a member of Northridge HS and he continuously impressed with loud tools across the board. He ran a 6.89, had an exit velocity of 98mph and was up to 92mph from the outfield.

At GCU, Aguilar has posted back-to-back strong seasons at the dish, batting .331 last year with a .411 OBP and six home runs. Although the batting average and OBP took a small dip this spring, his home run numbers sprung as he blasted 23 bombs along with a .326 average and .397 OBP.

 

OF Tanner O'Tremba (Parker, CO) - SF Giants, Round 15 (466)

O'Tremba was Colorado's top-ranked high school prospect back in 2018 and represented the State at the Super 60. It was the loud right-handed bat that jumped out with a top exit velocity of 100mph, along with a 6.87 60-yard dash and 85mph outfield velocity.

O'Tremba originally attended Texas Tech and played in 32 games as a freshman, blasting a pair of home runs. In his second year he played in just nine games for the Red Raiders and would ultimately transfer to Arizona. In his first year with the Wildcats, 2021, O'Tremba played in just half the games and batted .269 a pair of home runs and six extra-base hits. He broke out this past spring in the PAC12 as he batted .351 with 11 home runs, 21 doubles and 4 triples.
