Frazier Among Baseball’s Top Outfield Prospects

MLB Pipeline continued with their top 10 lists of the best prospects at each position and earlier today Jonathan Mayo named New York Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier as the number nine outfield prospect in the minors.

Frazier, 22, was acquired by the Yankees in the middle of the 2016 season when they traded reliever Andrew Miller to the Cleveland Indians.  In 28 games in the organization, he hit just .228 with two doubles, three triples, and three home runs but overall hit .263/.335/.447 between three different teams last season.

He spent most the 2016 season in Double-A where he hit .276/.356/.469 in 89 games for the Akron RubberDucks.  Frazier owns a career .275 batting average over 416 games since being drafted in the first round of the 2013 Draft by the Indians.

Frazier is the first to admit he tried to do too much after getting traded to the Yankees in the Andrew Miller deal.” Mayo wrote, “He did settle down some to show what he could do before getting dinged up. Yankees fans well get to see the real Frazier in 2017, the one with as much bat speed as any prospect in the game. If he rediscovers his approach, he’ll hit the Bronx this season.
