SQL stored procedure in .NET Core.

I call SQL stored procedures slightly differently in .NET Core to the way I did in .NET framework as I now pass the connection string through as an argument and I need to remember to add the System.Data.SqlClient NuGet package.

public static List<string> GetBlogSummaries(string connectionString)
	List<string> headers = new List<string>();

	using (SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(connectionString))
		using (SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("sp__get_required_headers"))
			command.CommandType = System.Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure;
			command.Connection = connection;


			SqlDataReader reader = command.ExecuteReader();

			if (reader.HasRows)
				while (reader.Read())


	return headers;

I understand in that case , you would only return a list of string , but is there anyway in “>Net core” to map the result froma SQL reader to any type ?
I mean without mapping the individual column manually , something like :

List< theResultList = (New ClassX()).Convert(sqlReader);
