Drafted in the 7th round (218th overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2015 (signed for $25,000)
A fifth-year senior, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Friedrichs has had some success in multiple roles for Long Beach State, pitching in relief for three seasons before becoming the team's workhorse this spring. He peppers the strike zone with an 84-88 mph fastball but challenges hitters with it and locates it. He has a changeup with decent fade and locates his breaking ball, which has has a feel for manipulating, changing its shape and velocity.
