RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Invariably, any scouting report on Frazier will start by mentioning his elite bat speed. Itís the reason the Indians took him with the fifth overall pick in the 2013 draft, and itís the reason some people see Frazier as an eventual star. After struggling in his first couple months of pro ball, Frazier slashed .282/.367/.448 with nine home runs and five steals in 65 games in the second half for Low-A Lake County. The biggest concern with the 20-year-old center fielder is the 29.7% strikeout rate that he posted in his first year as a professional. Fortunately, Frazier also showed some patience at the plate, taking a walk in 10.3% of his plate appearances at Low-A. There is a lot of risk here, and Frazier is at least two years away from the big leagues, but few minor leaguers can match his upside, which is why he remains a top-50 prospect in dynasty leagues.
Frazier hit the ground running after getting picked fifth overall in the 2013 draft by the Indians, slashing .297/.362/.506 in 44 games in the Arizona Rookie League. The only hiccup was a less than stellar ability to control the strike zone (17:61 BB:K in 196 plate appearances), but a few bumps are to be expected from a prospect right out of high school in his first pro exposure. A short, quick swing projects Frazier with a plus-power tool, and he does flash some speed despite just three stolen bases in his first season. He'll look to build off of his debut in his first full professional season, likely beginning with the Indians' Low-A affiliate in the Midwest League in April.
