Former Vol Jordan Beck recorded his first professional home run Saturday in the Arizona Complex League.

Beck was selected by Colorado (No. 38 overall) in the 2022 Major League Baseball draft.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound former Vol hit a home run in the first inning Saturday against the ACL Angels at Tempe Diablo Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.

Beck recorded 18 home runs, 61 RBIs, 70 runs, 75 hits, 15 doubles, three triples, 37 walks and six stolen bases in 66 games during the 2022 season at Tennessee.

Before arriving at Tennessee, Beck was selected in the 14th round of the 2019 MLB draft by the Boston Red Sox.

Beck played 16 games as a freshman in 2020, making 10 starts for the Vols. The 2020 season ended prematurely due to the coronavirus pandemic after 17 games.

He played in 67 games, while making 66 starts as a sophomore in 2021. The Vols finished 50-18, winning the Southeastern Conference East division, and advancing to the College World Series.
