Nate Freiman, Wellesley’s best bet for a major league baseball player in years, has moved up the ranks again in the San Diego Padres minor league system and is off to a blistering start this season.
Freiman, a star player in Wellesley Little League, Wellesley High School and Duke University, has progressed from the Padres’ Class A teams in Lake Elsinore, Fort Wayne and Eugene to the Double A San Antonio Missions, where the 6-foot-7-inch first baseman was hitting .324 with a Texas League leading 13 homers through the first 35 games. The Padres have 13 homers as a TEAM so far this season, so it looks like they could definitely use a slugger or two on the roster, and no one on their AAA team appears to be in the same class of slugger as the 25-year-old Freiman or his teammate Cody Decker, who also plays first base.
