Drafted in the 3rd round (95th overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2019 (signed for $525,000)
Fraizer was showing enough improvement at the beginning of his junior season to garner early Day 2 draft hype. After his first 19 games, the uber-athletic outfielder was hitting .412/.452/.565 with only six strikeouts in nearly 100 plate appearances while also showing improved defense in center field. However, a broken hamate bone sidelined Fraizer following his encouraging start. When healthy, Fraizer was not only making more frequent contact, but he was also tapping into his average power more often. In the long term, he projects as a gap-to-gap hitter with more doubles than home runs. His defense has improved enough over his college career that he should be able to stay in center field, where his plus speed and fringe-average arm play nicely. Even with the injury, Fraizer still has a good chance of being drafted on Day 2.
