In the first round of the 2017 draft, Tyler Freeman was chosen by the Cleveland Guardians. He attended Etiwanda High School in Rancho Cucamonga, California. He has now demonstrated his bat-to-ball skills while steadily moving up the team’s minor-league system.
However, Freeman was constantly considered as having some of the best pure hitting skills on every team for which he has played, despite the fact that there isn’t anything particularly memorable or exciting to note on paper.
And that has undoubtedly come to pass during his stint in the minors. Freeman played with Mahoning Valley in his second professional season, making 72 appearances, hitting.352/.405/.511 with 29 doubles in 270 at-bats.
In 2019, Freeman played for both Low-A Lake County and High-A Lynchburg, demonstrating his continued ability to command the strike zone and put the bat on the ball.
With a combined batting average over.300 and an on-base percentage just below.370, Freeman once again put up some impressive numbers.
Tyler Freeman could reach his major league debut this summer with the Cleveland Guardians if all goes as planned and he continues to deliver.
Freeman might be the next to enter Cleveland’s starting lineup for years to come as the Guardians hope for their most recent generation of young players to stand up and perform.
