With the 2022 MLB Draft in the rearview, many organizations are currently looking to add more college talent as undrafted free agents.
Undrafted free agents can sign deals up to $125,000, so organizations typically target players who either have graduated or have one year of school remaining. Due to the NCAA-approved redshirt season granted to all players in 2020, many undrafted free agents still have at least one year of eligibility remaining.
A team's undrafted free agents often start their respective careers at the same minor league affiliate as the players who get drafted in the same season. So, theoretically, they compete on a level playing field for roster spots and promotions.
Here's a look at seven New England prospects who have signed as undrafted free agents and five more who should be signed.
