8th Round Pick

Nate Freiman, 1B at Duke University

A 6'8" first baseman, Nate has monster power. This year, his senior year, he had 19 homers and just 24 strikeouts. As you can imagine, he makes a nice target over at 1B.

Are the Padres joining the NBA? Six-eight first baseman and a load of six-five pitchers.

Freiman's caught a bit. Interesting.

Richie Sexson redoux?

Sexson struck out a lot though. So do most of the really tall hitters in MLB. Will be interesting to follow him in the farm system.

Nice project. Won't be expensive to sign and can't go back to college.

Doesn't need to go back to college - All ACC Academic selection every year, and I've heard Rhodes Scholar talk.
