Just two picks after Wade Meckler, another Oregon State Beaver came off the board, with Catcher Gavin Logan being picked by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the ninth round, with the 258th overall pick.

Logan was a sure hand for the Beavers both at the plate and behind it. He finished the 2022 season with a .281 batting average and a .801 OPS. He wasn’t Oreogn State’s most prominent slugger, but still finished the year with 12 doubles, 2 triples and 3 home runs. Defensively, he finished the season with only 1 error, for a .998 fielding percentage. He finished the season with 406 putouts, and caught six runners stealing. After the season he was named All Pac-12 First Team and All Pac-12 Tournament Team.

With Logan likely headed to Phoenix, Oregon State’s catcher duties will probably fall to Tanner Smith or TJ Wheeler, who each saw a bit of action last season. It should be an interesting camp battle to watch next Spring.

Stay tuned for more updates as the 2022 MLB Draft continues through the later rounds.
