Chase Estep 3B-NY Mets: 2022 MLB Draft, 9th Rd, 269th overall

Estep earned both National Player of the Week and SEC Player of the Week honors in the 2022 campaign. Along with shortstop Ryan Ritter, the pair manned the left side of the infield admirably for the Wildcats over a two-year period. This came after he had seen time as an outfielder for the Wildcats.

Estep’s power element went to another level this past year. He finished with career-highs in both home runs and slugging percentage. The three-time All-State football standout brings a high level of energy to the field.
