Watching the video has me excited. He’s not a launch monitor creation, but rather a nice line drive stroke. I especially liked seeing him hit pitches up in the zone.

He’s a hockey player. He will be good.

Khalil Watson would have been a home run for this farm system. I really hope he falls out of the first (meaning he isn’t signable)

Harold Reynolds calls him a Brewer player without defining what exactly makes a Brewer player and I have no idea why he's covering this.

Well Brewers like their up the middle athletes

Don’t forget, he’s 5’9” but could still grow as well. I knew people that grew until almost 23…sadly I didn’t

If by fair you mean idiotic, then I agree.

I haven't watched a draft in a while. When did they stop having a team's former player announce their pick?

There it is what a joke. Wish our Farm director had a lick of balls. But nope gotta stick to the model that worked so well so far.

Are you really holding out for the possibility that he grows. Wow some people will come up with anything to excuse this pick.

I never like when the first things they bring up about a player are “clubhouse guy”, “scrappy gamer”. Seems like a safe bet to make the major leagues but with a low ceiling. Boring pick. Hopefully not a big whiff while leaving a much higher ceiling Watson on the board.

From FanGraphs

A Massachusetts multi-sport prep standout (he was the Gatorade POY in football as a quarterback, as well as a lauded hockey player), Frelick emerged last spring playing outfield and putting up huge numbers for Boston College. He has several catalytic qualities already and might hit for more in-game power later as his swing and approach evolve. Right now Frelick is a slap-and-slash hitter who'll occasionally show you low-ball power. He has good vertical plate coverage and can catch pitches near the top of the zone. It takes projecting on some elements of Frelick's offense to see him as an impact regular, but so much of his skillset is either new or changing (he's also played some second base) and we're betting on late development here because of the multi-sport, Northeast background and time lost due to a 2019 knee injury/surgery.

Yeah we don't have enough middle of the diamond athletes with no power.

This has two meanings and I wish I knew which one you meant.

Not sure why I have a height bias in outfielders, but when I see his projections as a limited power type, I imagine they drafted Nori Aoki 2.0.

Watson to Miami. Clearly Miami has no issues with his signability

The Marlins have been in on Watson forever. It's very possible they had a deal worked out with him in the unlikely event he made it this far, and that's a luxury the Brewers probably weren't able to match.

Just saw we took Frelick with Watson still on the board. Either he is unsignable or Milwaukee is taking Ls all over tonight SMH. Our farm system is 29th ranked. Maybe it’s time to deviate from the player model we lean so heavily on apparently hmmm.


We've graduated or traded for Narvaez, Hiura, Adames, Urias, Yelich, Woodruff, Burnes, Peralta, Houser, Hader, Williams, Suter & won the 7th most games in MLB over the last four years.

29th ranked farm or not, Ashby, Small, Mitchell & Turang are all due to start coming up over the next couple years & look like potential MLB contributors at this point.

The models are working just fine.

Frelick doesn't strikeout, he's productive, and improving. Another terrific Todd Johnson pick.
