Sal Frelick, 2023 Fantasy Outlook

“Keston Hiura, Tyrone Taylor, Christian Yelich…Each different bat the Brewers have ruined has nothing to do with Sal Frelick…” is what I chant to myself whereas surrounded by candles in a meditation room. Yelich had his personal floor ball points; Tyrone Taylor was by no means imagined to be that good, he solely acquired hyped within the fantasy baseball neighborhood; Keston Hiura sucked, however perhaps he was overrated by scouts and all the time kinda sucked, or perhaps his batting stance acquired out of alignment or perhaps or perhaps or perhaps! None of those guys have something to do with Sal Frelick, and I have to cease attempting to place that rubbish on this man. Let’s see what Itch mentioned, “The fifteenth total select of Boston School possesses double-plus bat management and phone talents that ought to let the remainder of his sport flourish as Sal Frelick climbs the ladder, and somebody push Gray off a ladder.” C’mon, man! Itch additionally mentioned quite a lot of different stuff on Sal Frelick, that was, truthfully, solely a fraction of what was mentioned about Frelick. Prospect Itch and Prospect Hobbs have coated Frelick an ideal deal; they’re each very massive followers. You may get an excellent 1000 phrases on Sal Frelick from Hobbs when Frelick was merely a man within the 2021 MLB draft. It’s definitely worth the learn. So, what can we anticipate from Sal Frelick for 2023 fantasy baseball?

I watched 15 seconds of Sal Frelick and I used to be like, “Oh, he’s Steven Kwan.”

Hey, I like Steven Kwan, so giddy up:

Right here’s the facility, in the event you can name it that:

He’s a .330 hitting, 30+ steal swiping, maybe-10-homer-hitting, limousine driving, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ and dealin’ son of a gun! And that every one performs for me. I truly discovered one spotlight of him placing out. I don’t say that to be like, “Rattling, this man’s contact is a large number.” Oh, no. The other. I believe somebody put Sal Frelick placing out on the interwebs, as a result of it’s such a uncommon factor to witness, they wished others to see what it regarded like. Like a video of Sasquatch, or a Nick Cannon girlfriend not being pregnant. These items are so uncommon it’s important to make discover when you’ll be able to.

Simply the info, ma’am: At age 22, Sal Frelick was promoted three stops this yr, ending the yr at Triple-A, the place he went 4/9 and .365/.435/.508 in 189 ABs. He had a 7.4% strikeout price with a 8.8% stroll price. Ha, that’s goofy. A better stroll price than a strikeout price is mainly the universe saying, “In case you have an OBP league that’s drafting early or it’s deep, it’s important to take a flyer on Sal Frelick.” Sorry, however “need to.” Sure. There’s no maybes or we’ll sees. Brewers’ outfield has Yelich, Renfroe and a wild card. Might Frelick slot proper in out of Spring Coaching? I imagine so, however they’ve Tyrone Taylor, Garrett Mitchell, and Esteury Ruiz. Possibly Renfroe goes to DH, and that opens two spots, and, sure, I’m nonetheless toying with an Esteury Ruiz fantasy rookie publish too. So, does Frelick break camp? Possibly. Is he referred to as up by June? On the newest, I might assume. If Frelick breaks camp, he’s on the Rookie of the 12 months radar with Corbin Carroll, and Jordan Walker, and I might see him simply being worthwhile in shallowest of leagues, and sneaking into the highest 40 outfielders. Due to his insane bat management, he feels safer than most. For 2023, I’ll give Sal Frelick projections of 48/6/38/.287/16 in 309 ABs with an opportunity for extra, relying on when he’s promoted.
