    Frechette transferred from San Diego’s Cathedral Catholic High to Orange (Calif.) Lutheran High as a senior and had a chance at increased exposure, but injuries hampered him from the start. He hurt his hamstring in the fall, suffered a hamate injury shortly after and then was struck by mononucleosis. Frechette looks the part at 6-foot-3 with a good-looking lefthanded swing and above-average to plus raw power. He mostly does his damage in batting practice, however, and struggles to repeat his swing in games. He had just three extra-base hits in 24 games this spring, furthering longstanding concerns about his ability to hit live pitching. Frechette is a decent athlete who is an average runner underway, but he’s a first baseman long-term and will have to get to his power to profile. Frechette’s body and swing have some teams interested on the draft’s second day. Others are content to let him honor his San Diego State commitment.
