Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 60 | Control: 40 | Overall: 40

When the White Sox called Frare up last September, he joined Les Rohr (the No. 2 overall pick in 1965) as the only pitchers ever drafted out of a Montana high school to reach the big leagues. Signed for $100,000 by the Yankees as an 11th-rounder in 2012, he blew out his elbow and missed the next two seasons following Tommy John surgery. New York traded him to Chicago for $1.5 million in international bonus pool money last July.

There's nothing subtle about Frare, who goes after hitters with a pair of power pitches. His four-seam fastball sits at 92-96 mph and peaks at 98 with riding life up in the strike zone. His slider/cutter also grades as a plus offering, arriving at 87-91 mph with some tilt.

Left-handers managed just one extra-base hit in 90 at-bats against Frare in 2018, and he's also effective against right-handers. The key for him to finding a niche in the White Sox bullpen will be developing reliable control and command. He averaged 4.6 walks per nine innings in his first five years as a pro and got knocked around in the Majors when he fell behind in the count.
