    Frisch ranked No. 155 in the 2021 draft class a year ago as a draft-eligible sophomore and pitched in several roles for Oregon State to great success. Frisch was expected to move into the starting rotation full-time this spring for the Beavers, but a partially torn UCL and subsequent Tommy John surgery ended his 2022 season before it began—like many pitchers in this injury-ridden class. Frisch entered the year with second-to-fourth round potential, thanks to a solid three-pitch mix including a fastball, slider and changeup. In 2021 as a split starter/reliever, Frisch averaged 94 mph and ran the pitch up to 98, while his upper-80s changeup earned plus grades and generated a 40% whiff rate and his mid-80s slider checked in at average. With a solid or better three-pitch mix and control that took a big step forward from 2020 to 2021, Frisch looked the part of a solid starting pitching prospect with a filled-out 6-foot, 222-pound frame. His injury and lost 2022 season make him more of a question mark.
