Scouts considered Fletcher one of the top defensive outfielders in the 2016 prep class, but his lack of profile tools and commitment to Arkansas left him undrafted. A three-year starter in center for the Razorbacks, he was their best hitter at the 2018 College World Series, where they lost to Oregon State in the finals. As with his older brother David, an infielder with the Angels, his skills still stand out more than his pure physical ability. The D-backs took Fletcher with the last of their seven picks on Day 1 of the 2019 Draft and assigned him straight to Class A Kane County for his pro debut.
Fletcher's best attribute is his play in center field. Though he's a fringy runner out of the batter's box, he's quicker once he gets going and has tremendous instincts that allow him to track down balls from gap to gap. He has displayed plus arm strength in the past, though it has played closer to average in 2019.
Fletcher has a power-based approach at the plate, and his strength and aggressive, pull-conscious mentality could produce 15-20 homers per season. He doesn't have the smoothest left-handed swing and he's a streaky hitter, but he makes consistent contact and should hit for a decent average. He has shown improved discipline at the plate this spring, though his offensive package may fit better for a fourth outfielder than an everyday player.
