3/17/18- 5-foot-8, 145-pound left-handed hitting catcher. Friedges is still a significant way away physically, but the foundation that he showcases should allow him to make big jumps once he gets stronger. The left-handed hitting catcher has a relaxed rhythm at the plate and a smooth stroke. His load works fluently down and back with a minor leg kick before the barrel works slightly uphill through the zone with a loose, two-handed finish. He demonstrated to hit line drives to all fields. Behind the plate, he featured looser hips and soft hands, and was able to produce pop times as low as 2.0.

Open stance, strides to square, shoulder load, some looseness to hands, shows ability to use gaps, line drive and fly ball hitter, 74 mph exit velocity. Shows footwork, works through plate, slight hitch in arm action, avg. carry to bag with above avg. accuracy, has flexibility behind plate, needs additional strength to hold pitches in zone, 70 mph arm strength with 2.27-2.34 pop times.
