June 7, 2018 — Orange County Riptide (California Collegiate League)
Thin, lanky kid; tons of projectability through frame with room to add considerable weight and strength — and, in turn, velocity — as he grows into his body. Long-term project for the University of Oregon, and I’ll be surprised if Tyler Frazier has a big role with the Ducks in his upcoming freshman year, but the foundation is there for him to turn into a valuable arm down the road with lots of hard work and development … Fastball 81-85 in this early June look, paired up nicely with a 73-75 changeup, a 66-69 curveball, and a 71-74 slider. Timed him 1.24 – 1.34 to the plate with runner on first base. Good athlete off the mound; fields his position, moves around well, holds runners decently well with quick, consistent move to the plate and OK pickoff look, etc. … Loose, whippy arm action with great arm speed through release and extension out front. That arm action combined with the lean frame suggests to me Tyler Frazier ought to be throwing quite a bit harder in a few years; wouldn’t surprise me if his final form sees low-90s fastball work with a couple sharp breaking balls by the time his amateur career ends … Good arm-side life on fastball right now with a free and easy release to the plate; extension out front with encouraging feel going side to side at the corners with OK command profile. Throws strikes with entire off-speed repertoire, including good, competitive looks from two different, distinct breaking balls; trusts spin on slower curveball that shows some depth, and then backs it up with a more horizontal sweeping slider that shows a bit more velo; finishes both pitches. Changeup tunnels well with fastball, shows decent tumble with fade to arm-side thanks to arm angle; with all off-speed, consistent arm action helps sell them out of the hand with some deception … Current velo may scare some folks off, or surprise some that the University of Oregon is taking a guy with a low/mid-80s fastball, but Tyler Frazier has the arm action and free, easy release that bode well for considerable future growth in velocity and pitch life. He’s a long-term play, and he’ll remain a project for a while — a lot of hard work in the weight room and a long-toss regimen is ahead — but I like the foundation flashed here, and I think it’ll be worth following up on him in a few years’ time. Depending on what happens with the University of Oregon this coming year, Tyler Frazier may prove to be a shrewd JuCo bounce-back pickup a year from now. Beyond that — or if he sticks with Oregon — it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s a legit MLB Draft candidate in/around 2022.
