    Re: TJ Friedl: Ceiling, ETA, Fit

    I just love this guy.

    He's already got a Walk a Hit, 2 Runs Scored, 2 Stolen Bases, and it's only the 3rd inning.

    People pointing out the lack of offense in that league are correct. Friedl's numbers look pedestrian, and he had a horrid start, but his wRC+ is 121 (better than both Trammell and Siri) coming into today. Seeing how the other parts of his game - defense, baserunning - are pretty well developed, he seems the one guy who may have earned a mid-year promotion to AAA. The Reds have a ton of journeyman having career years in the AAA OF, but Refsnyder, OGrady and even Ervin, shouldn't standing in Friedl's way. Until the big league roster is sorted out when the Reds start selling, those guys should be pushed aside and the AAA outfield should primarily be the guys still young enough to possibly become something. For me that's Longhi in LF, Friedl in CF an Aquino in RF. Ervin can be the 4th OF and O'grady and Refsnyder can stick to 1B. Perhaps Refsnyder can get another look in the IF. Blake Trahan isn't a must play. We know he's the IF glove in case of emergency - Paul Janish for a new generation. Christain Colon has cooled way off and Sherman Johnson can be moved to make room. O'Grady at 1B, Blandino at 2B, Colon, Trahan et al at SS and Refsnyder at 3B. Refsnyder can play 2B on occasion with Blandino moving around.

    He finally got stopped today (Lookouts lost 1-0). Boy, that was some streak he was on. See if he can start a new one.

    Well, they gave him the day off the next game. Maybe it inspired Trammel, as Taylor earned his first MiPOD Award.

    Back to work, Friedl is ready to stay hot. A Walk, Stolen Base, and then a 2-run HR to give the Lookouts a lead in the 5th. One more Plate Appearance to go tonight.

    Even though Chatanooga only scored one run tonight, Friedl bettered his Avg, OBP, and OPS.

    He is a 24 year old, injured, regressing minor leaguer who isnt even a top 350 MLB prospect. He will never sniff the majors

    When you're definitely a new poster and not someone who has posted on Redszone before.

    Don't totally disagree with the overall assessment, though I think he can make it to The Show as a role player.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Hard to assess his season. Seemingly put it together before the injury derailed him. He was .260/.361/.442 after he spent April in the toilet. That's the same territory that Stu Fairchild is in (same basic age as Friedl). I'm a little concerned about the BA, because T.J. needs that to be part of his game. He needs to hit .280+ to be all he can be. Yet he'll probably have the chance to start in AAA next season and make his case.

    TJ has enough bat to ball skill and athletic ability to make it to MLB and I think he will. How long he stays is another question. Not sure why people pop up to troll on a guy when he is down.

    Rankings are subjective snapshots of what is a very fluid development. In addition, for any ranking system #400 is closer to #50 in terms of talent/skill/ceiling/etc, than #50 is to #1.

    That said, it's too soon to tell what will become of Friedl's career, but there are reasons for optimism.

    I’m guessing Aquino and VanMeter were in that range at the beginning of this season. You’d be surprised how many “non elite” prospects make it to the majors.

    Yup.

    If you're within two years of the average age for the league and a starter in AA, chances are pretty good that you'll end up with at least a cup of coffee in the majors.
