48 1444 Texas Rangers Cole Frenzel 3B N.D.
First baseman Zac Elgie, who's now at Kansas, surpassed Darin Erstad as North Dakota's highest prep draft pick ever last year, when the Athletics made him a 12th-round pick. Some talent evaluators say Cole Frenzel is a better prospect than Elgie because he hits lefthanded, has more bat speed and a purer swing. Six-foot-2 and 210 pounds, Frenzel offers big power and arm strength. His position is in question, as his below-average speed means he won't be able to play shortstop after high school. If he attends Arizona as expected, he'll probably move to third base, and he could try catching once he turns pro. He also starred in football and basketball and led Dickinson to the last two state Class A baseball championships.
