RHP Nick Frasso drafted by Toronto Blue Jays in fourth round of 2020 MLB Draft

Former Peninsula pitcher Nick Frasso was selected in the fourth round of the 2020 MLB Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays.

Frasso started some games as both a freshman and sophomore at Loyola Marymount, but his primary role was as a closer. As a sophomore in 2019, he finished with a 2.22 ERA and 73 strikeouts in 56.2 innings. He also totaled 10 saves, and held opposing hitters to a .154 BA.

What they’re saying:

“Nick Frasso features a powerful mid-90s fastball, topping out at 98, with great life. MLB.com rates the pitch as a 60 on the 20-80 scale. It has played especially well up in the strike zone. He also mixes in a sweeping curveball that sits in the mid-70s and tunnels well with his four-seamer. Its slower velocity allows Frasso to keep hitters on their toes, often unprepared for the mid-90s heater that complements it so well.” –Evan Walsh of LastWordOnBaseball.
