The Chicago White Sox continue to remain pitching-heavy in their approach to the 2022 MLB Draft. With the No. 161 overall pick in the fifth round, the White Sox selected left-hander Tyler Schweitzer from Ball State University.

Schweitzer is a 6-foot, 185 lb hurler from Fishers, Ind. MLB.com ranked him as the No. 210 prospect in this year’s draft class.

In his three seasons at Ball State, Schweitzer has accumulated a 14-2 record, 3.39 ERA, and 176 strikeouts across 135.1 innings. During the 2022 season, he pitched to an 11-2 record and 2.65 ERA with 112 strikeouts and 30 walks in 91.2 innings across 17 games (16 starts). Those figures helped the southpaw earn MAC Pitcher of the Year honors.

Tyler Schweitzer joins Noah Schultz, Peyton Pallette, and Jonathan Cannon as the Chicago White Sox pitcher picks in the early rounds of the 2022 MLB Draft.
