2023 Fantasy Outlook
The Orioles appear to be working their magic with Fabian, an ultra toolsy outfielder from Florida whose strikeout issues in college caused him to fall enough in the 2021 draft (40th overall to Boston) to go back to school before eventually signing with Baltimore for around $1 million after getting selected with the 67th overall pick last year. He hit .333/.455/.615 with three home runs, a 21.2 K% and a 19.2 BB% in 99 plate appearances across rookie ball, Single-A and High-A. Fabian's 79.5 Contact% in 10 games at Single-A is promising, and he didn't chase much at all, albeit as an older college draftee against weak low-level pitching. Baltimore tries to get their hitters to make good swing decisions, essentially swinging at pitches they can drive and laying off pitches they can't, and if Fabian can adhere to their wishes, he has the tools (plus power, above-average speed) to shoot up prospect rankings. He should add defensive value in center field or right field and hits right-handed, so there is a chance he can be an everyday player. Read Past Outlooks

The Orioles have selected Fabian with the 67th overall pick in the 2022 first-year player draft.
ANALYSIS
The Orioles almost landed Fabian last year, but the Red Sox selected him with the 40th overall pick, and he didn't end up agreeing to a deal. He went back to Florida and never really improved his shaky hit tool. Fabian projects to add defensive value in the outfield and has easy plus power, so it will be all about improving his hit tool.
