Bama pitcher Connor Prielipp selected 48th overall to Minnesota Twins

By WVUA 23 Sports Reporter Drew Pavan

University of Alabama Alabama pitcher Connor Prielipp was selected No. 48 overall by the Minnesota Twins on Sunday night of the 2022 MLB draft.

Many MLB experts had Prielipp slated for the mid to late first round, but he slid out of the first and was taken in the second.

The leftie pitcher was recognized as one of the best pitchers in college. After an impressive freshman campaign with the Tide, he pitched 21 innings allowing just five hits and striking out 35 batters.

However, Prielipp appeared in three games for Alabama in his sophomore season before undergoing Tommy John surgery and decided to not pitch for the Tide this past year.
