Larnach attended College Park High School in Pleasant Hill, California, and was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 40th round of the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft.[1] He did not sign with the Padres and attended Oregon State University where he played college baseball for the Beavers.[2]

As a freshman at Oregon State in 2016, Larnach played in 28 games, hitting .157/.271/.176 with three runs batted in (RBI) over 51 at bats.[3] As a sophomore in 2017, he played in 60 games and hit .303/.421/.429 with three home runs and 48 RBI in 198 at bats.[4] After the season, he played in the Cape Cod League.

The Minnesota Twins selected Larnach in the first round, with the 20th overall selection, in the 2018 Major League Baseball draft.
