LONG BEACH, Calif. – Long Beach State’s All-American pitcher Josh Frye signed with the Los Angeles Angels organization earlier this week, becoming the fourth Dirtbag to sign a pro contract this summer. Frye became the Dirtbags’ Saturday starter in March and thrived as the lone senior in the rotation.
Collegiate Baseball named Frye a Second Team All-American after his stellar senior campaign. The Long Beach native went 8-1 on the season with a 1.94 ERA. His only loss came in the NCAA Regionals against the College of Charleston as he strung together an unbeaten regular season.
With Frye signing a contract to play pro ball, all three starters in the Dirtbags’ weekend rotation have now been drafted and/or signed. Friday night starter Andrew Rohrbach was the ninth round pick of the Colorado Rockies, has signed with the club and was assigned to the single-A short season affiliate, the Tri-City DustDevils. Sunday starter Nick Sabo was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the 28th round but has not yet signed with the club.
Right fielder Richard Prigatano was also a Colorado Rockies draft pick in the 11th round of the draft. He has also signed with the club and remained teammates with Rohrbach on the Tri-City DustDevils.
