White Sox select RHRP Tristan Stivors in 16th round (No. 491 overall)

Coming off of a stellar relief year for Texas State in which he led the nation in saves, this closer might move quickly in the system

Texas State University

With pick No. 491 in the 2022 MLB draft, the White Sox added right-handed closer Tristan Stivors from Texas State University.

Stivors is a 6´4´´, 220-pound closer, crushing the Sun Belt Conference competition with 18 saves in 32 games and a 2.21 ERA/1.082 WHIP, with 86 Ks in 61 innings. Those 18 saves led the nation in 2022. He features a classic closer mix of big heat and killer breaking ball.

Turning 24 in September, the White Sox might be eyeing Stivors as a pitcher who can move quickly through the system and perhaps make a contributions in its upper levels or on the South Side soon.

Oh, and a closer, who led the nation in saves, starting a game this season? That stands out. Here are some details:

Stivors is a monster. This is a tasty pick.
