Saint Mary's College of California

Talamante spent his college ball days at Saint Mary's College of California, which is located in Moraga, CA. The 23-year-old outfielder spent five seasons with the Gaels, from 2017 to 2021. Talamante played sporadically in his first three seasons, but cracked the starting lineup in 2020 and stayed there in 2021. In 15 games in the COVID-shortened 2020 season, Talamante hit .269 with a .356 OBP, racking up 14 hits in 52 at-bats. However, Talamante's 2021 campaign was his finest. In 2021, he slashed .299/.414/.401 with 47 hits in 157 at-bats. He also slugged 12 doubles, two home runs and 14 RBI. His fine 2021 season was enough to earn him a contract with the Gary SouthShore RailCats, where he plays today.
