Here’s the 2022 Draft order

It marks the second time in four years the Orioles have the top pick after they selected Adley Rutschman, currently the No. 1 prospect in baseball, in 2019. Baltimore also had the top pick back in 1989, taking Ben McDonald.

The D-backs (No. 2), Rangers (No. 3), Pirates (No. 4) and Nationals (No. 5) round out the top five. The Nats haven’t had a top 10 pick since 2011, when they took Anthony Rendon at No. 6, a year after nabbing Bryce Harper No. 1 overall in 2010 and Stephen Strasburg with the top overall selection in 2009. The Cubs, picking at No. 7, are in the top 10 for the first time since taking Ian Happ at No. 9 in 2015, the last of four straight top-10 picks.

The Mets will pick twice in the top 15, getting the No. 11 pick as compensation for not signing 2021 first-rounder Kumar Rocker, the No. 10 overall pick, as well as their regular pick, now at No. 14. The Astros will be back in the first round for the first time in three years after forfeiting their first-round pick in 2020 and 2021 as punishment for sign stealing.

Don't worry, Arizona, it's unlikely Orioles will pick BPA at 1:1. Very likely to leverage pick amongst a group of 5 or so to go overslot throughout draft. Elias has gone college position player heavy, so Elijah Green is likely to be available at #2.

They did with Rutschman, and signed him for a record bonus.

The Mets do have two picks in the top-15. Hopefully, the New GM can get more out of them.

The Orioles are shaping to be scary good by the mid 2020s, what with their farm system being ranked #1 PRIOR to adding the 1st pick in the 2022 draft.

Plus, they have next to no money on the books for 2022, so they can easily bring in 3 or 4 mid-tier FAs on 1 or 2 year deals to help the youngsters which will be coming up to Balto.

(Yeah, it's the Angelos' family, so they'll probably not spend any more on FAs this off-season).

Unless they sign a guy who turned down a QO. In which case they couldn't even suck the right way in the last two weeks.
