Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 45 | Run: 65 | Arm: 40 | Field: 60 | Overall: 50

After three productive years at LSU, where he looked very much like a future center fielder and leadoff type hitter, Fraley was a Competitive Balance Round B pick of the Rays in 2016. As good as he was in college, he was tough to see as a pro, missing nearly all of the 2017 season and half of 2018 with injuries, though he did make up for some lost time with a dominant turn in the Australian Baseball League after the '17 season. The Mariners, who loved his speed and defense in LSU, loved what they did see when he was on the field and were sure to get him as part of the deal that sent Mike Zunino to Tampa Bay this past offseason.

One question facing Fraley when he entered pro ball was whether he would be physical enough at the plate. While he only got 225 at-bats in 2018, he showed the ability to drive the ball with extra-base authority, especially to his pull side. His legs and his glove are still his carrying tools and he has more than enough ability to stick in center field long term, albeit with a below-average arm. He has basestealing ability as well and should get back to wreaking more havoc when 100 percent healthy.

Controlling the strike zone and getting on base are still the keys for Fraley to profile as a top-of-the-order catalyst. If he can continue to impact the ball like he has at times, there's still time for him to develop into a big league regular.
