Fletcher often gets compared to fellow West Coast Conference shortstop Kyle Holder of San Diego. Like Holder, Fletcher is a glove-first shortstop in a year of good depth for college shortstops. Otherwise, he and Holder share few similarities. At 5-foot-10, 175 pounds, Fletcher has to play within himself, drawing walks, making contact and playing premium defense. He's learning to pick his spots and drive the ball a bit more, but his offensive ceiling is fairly modest, as his four extra-base hits in the Cape Cod League in 2014 attest. He shines defensively, with instincts that help his average to above-average tools play up a grade. Fletcher anticipates well and has excellent range with smooth actions and an above-average arm. An eligible sophomore, Fletcher is an average runner whose overall game has some similarities to Justin Turner's when he was at Cal State Fullerton.
