Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 35 | Run: 65 | Arm: 40 | Field: 60 | Overall: 45

The Rays drafted Fraley in Lottery Round B (77th overall) in the 2016 Draft after he had batted .324/.407/.459 and ranked among the SEC leaders in steals, runs, hits and triples as a Louisiana State junior. As a pro, however, Fraley has been beset by injuries including a sprained left toe that sidelined him for the first half of 2018 at Class A Advanced Charlotte. Following the season, Fraley was traded to the Mariners along with Mallex Smith in the deal that netted Tampa Bay Mike Zunino, Guillermo Heredia and Michael Plassmeyer.

Fraley is well suited to bat atop a lineup, as he has a patient, contact-oriented approach and good feel for using the entire field. His flat left-handed swing offers little in the way of over-the-fence power, though he did show surprising pop during the 2017 Australian Baseball League, when he connected on 13 homers in 40 games for Perth. His power is more likely to translate into doubles and triples.

Fraley's plus speed is his carrying tool, and he knows how to apply it on the basepaths. It also allows him to impact the game in the outfield, where he's viewed by scouts as a plus defender, albeit one with below-average arm strength. He's capable of playing center field but likely profiles as a fourth outfielder given his ability to play all three positions.
