Trenkle drafted by Athletics, seventh OSU player drafted

  • Comments

A new program record has been set for OSU baseball.

OSU sophomore center fielder Caeden Trenkle has been drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the ninth round of the 2022 MLB Draft. Trenkle becomes the seventh OSU player to be drafted, setting a new record for the total number of Cowboys to be taken through the first 10 rounds of the draft. The previous record was five, which was most recently recorded in the 2016 draft.

Trenkle was drafted by the Chicago White Sox out of high school in the 2019 draft, but opted to play college ball instead of signing professionally. He spent the past three seasons at OSU. Known for his savvy defensive play, Trenkle also recorded a career best batting average through a full season of baseball, hitting .302 in 2022 along with a career high, six home runs.
