View Draft ReportFriedman bounced around a lot in his college career. He pitched his freshman year at George Washington, his sophomore year at Ventura (Calif.) JC, his junior year at San Diego and his senior year at NAIA Hope International. He started the year strong before tailing off in the middle of the season, and he eventually missed a month with arm soreness. He returned to make two appearances at the end of the season. At his best, Friedman brings a fastball that sits 90-93 mph with sink and life. His breaking ball is a swing and miss pitch when he locates it, but his control of it is inconsistent. Friedman started in college but projects as a sinker-slider reliever in pro ball. He projects to go on the draft’s third day.
