Scott Frazier, RHP, Pepperdine University
Class: Junior; Height: 6-7; Weight: 230; Position: RHP
Despite the rather vanilla 4.06 ERA, the lanky, 6-foot-7 right-hander from Pepperdine has turned in a fairly impressive season in 2013. In 13 starts for the Waves, Frazier missed an above-average amount of bats (8.42 K/9) while posting a solid 3.60 FIP. The problem, however, is his lagging control/command. In 88.7 innings, he’s walked 40, or 4.06 BB/9.
Projection: Frazier’s a decent prospect, potentially one that could go within the first three rounds of the draft. He has size, ability to miss bats, and his control during his sophomore season was far better (2.71 BB/9) than this year (4.06 BB/9). His peak is probably somewhere around a fourth or fifth starter, but there’s some potential big league value here.
Ceiling: 1.0- to 1.5-win player
