David Freese
Name: David Richard Freese
Born: Apr 28, 1983 in Corpus Christi, Texas USA
High School: Lafayette HS, Wildwood, Mo.
College: South Alabama
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 213 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 9th round (273rd overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2006 (signed for $6,000)
Freese, 23, could have been a prime candidate to sign following the season as a fifth-year senior, but South Alabama earned a spot in the NCAA regional play, meaning he would likely wind up back in the draft. He was named Sun Belt Conference player of the year after batting .415-11-70 with a .509 on-base percentage. He has big-time raw power and mashes balls to all fields when he gets his arms extended. Freese's approach is good; his defense at third base is not. He'll probably have to play first base, though some scouts suggest he could catch. There, however, his arm strength and throwing motion could be problematic.
