Cody Freeman
Name: Cody Nicholas Freeman
Born: Jan 5, 2001 in Rancho Cucamonga, CA
High School: Etiwanda HS, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.
Ht.: 5'10" / Wt.: 165 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 4th round (115th overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2019 (signed for $900,000)
Freeman teamed with his older brother Tyler to lead Etiwanda (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.) High to the first CIF championship in program history in 2017. Tyler Freeman was a supplemental second-round pick of the Indians that year, and now Cody is following his brother’s footsteps. Like his older brother, Freeman stands out for his premium instincts. At the plate, he tracks pitches well, separates balls from strikes and stays up the middle with an advanced approach. He’s more of a contact hitter than a home run threat, but he hits the ball hard to all fields and has a chance to develop more power as he matures. Freeman is an above-average runner who is aggressive but smart on the basepaths, and his advanced instincts enhance his ability to steal bases. He is a capable shortstop with reliable hands and an average, accurate arm, although he projects better as a potential plus defender at second base. Freeman has no standout tool, but his game is well-rounded and his instincts allow everything to play up. He is committed to Baylor.
