2022 Shore Sports Network MLB Draft Central
The Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft Continues Monday with rounds three through 10 and concludes on Tuesday with the final 10 rounds. While no Shore Conference players -- or New Jersey players, for that matter -- were selected during Day 1 on Sunday night, several familiar names are expected to here their names called over the next two days, including several today.
You can read about nine of the Shore's potential draft picks in our 2022 MLB Draft Preview, with individual profiles on each of the nine prospects. In the MLB Draft, there is always potential for some surprises as well, so in addition to someone being taken early, there could also be an off-the-radar name or two to be selected before the end of the 20th round as well, not to mention the possibility of free agent agreements after the Draft concludes.
Follow along over the next two days as we track the Draft and update the list of Shore Conference alumni selected by Major League clubs.

Fourth Round, 133rd Overall: The Houston Astros select Trey Dombroski out of Monmouth University. Dombroski is a 6-foot-5 left-hander who was a two-time Shore Sports Network Pitcher of the Year while at Wall High School and went on to win the MAAC Pitcher of the Year this past spring. Dombroski also was recognized as the top pitcher in the Cape Code League in the summer of 2021, adding to a decorated resume. With a fastball that sits between 88 and 92 miles-per-hour, Dombroski does not offer exceptional velocity, but his control might be the best of any pitcher in this draft and he has three quality secondary offerings on top of his two fastballs.

Fifth Round, 159th Overall: The Boston Red Sox select Noah Dean out of Old Dominion University. Dean is a 6-foot-2 left-handed reliever who was previously a four-year starter at Pinelands High School. Dean is believed to be the first ever Pinelands graduate to be selected in the MLB Draft. Since leaving Pinelands, Dean has increased his velocity, showing the capacity to hit 100 miles-per-hour on the radar gun and sitting in the 93-to-97 range during the last season. Read More
Fifth Round, 166th Overall: The San Francisco Giants select Liam Simon out of the University of Notre Dame. Simon is a 6-foot-3 right-hander who both started and pitched out of the bullpen for the Irish and spent his high-school years at Freehold Township. Simon flashed his considerable upside with back-to-back dominant outings that spanned the ACC Tournament and the NCAA Regionals, with Simon striking out 16 in eight scoreless innings. Simon has been clocked up to 101 miles-per-hour with his fastball and has a slider and a changeup in his arsenal -- a Major-League repertoire if he can improve his control. Read More
Seventh Round, 217th Overall: The St. Louis Cardinals select Alex Iadisernia out of Elon University. Iadisernia is a 5-foot-10 outfielder who has been a standout hitter for the Phoenix after previously putting up big hitting stats at Jackson Memorial High School. After posting his best collegiate season in 2021, he excelled in the Northwoods Summer League, leading the league in home runs and slugging percentage. Despite the summer power, Iadisernia is expected to most lean on his hit tool during his professional career more so than his power. Read More
