Follow the Prospects: Will Frizzell, 1B
« Topic Start: August 10, 2022, 09:36:44 AM »
Position: First Baseman
Bats: Left  •  Throws: Right
6-5, 225lb
Team: Fredericksburg Nationals
Born: February 21, 1999 (Age: 23)
Drafted by the Washington Nationals - 8th round of the 2021 MLB Draft (Texas A&M)

4 year college player so he was a below spot late draft pick in 2021. Very similar college career to 2022 draft pick Trey Lipscomb, role player his first three years before being a major part of the 2021 Texas A&M season. .343/.451/.686 with 19 HR 13 2B with 39 BB and 43 SO.

2021 with the FCL he only played in 9 games, .313/.353/.500 with 1 HR
Started the 2022 season injured before being activated for 11 games in the FCL .438/.538/.563 slash line across those 11 games, clearly too good for that level.
Promoted to Fburg in July, through 11 games - .347/.396/.673 with 4 HR and 4 2B. He has struck out 17 times in 49 AB, but the power is there. Also almost exclusively in the lineup as a DH which is a bit concerning.

Hit 2 more since I created this thread. In 27 G at Fburg he has an OPS of 1.026 and .366/.422/.604 with 6 HR and 8 2B. Safe to say he needs to be challenged at a higher level.

3-5 with 3 HR and 7 RBI tonight. .337/.376/.684 in 22G in Fredericksburg. 1.101 OPS with 9 HR in 95 AB.

With two weeks left, I would love to just send him straight to AA to see if he can hit there. He's 23 now and should be mashing in low A, but this is ridiculous.

A guy who can mash in the minor leagues when he’s 2 years older than the average competition who meets his match at higher levels. That’s the floor.. but hey, the ceiling is Jim Thome!

That one last night was hammered, too.  Roof of the scoreboard thing in RCF.

Just crushed another HR. Just overpowering Low A. Probably should be up.

This is a guy to watch.  I know it’s low a but I’m excited to follow him as he moves up.
