Nate Freiman was Rule V'd to the Astros after being Padres property. The A's scooped him up off waivers with about 2 weeks to go in spring training.
He's 2 for 2 with and RBI single in his first 2 ML at bats.
Why do I care?
He played 6 years for my organization and I've seen him grow up from a gangly 11 year old kid to a big leaguer.
What a journey and I will always root for him, even though he's on the wrong side of an Oakland 1B platoon.
That's awesome I was just watching the A's game. He is still tall and gangly looking.
