2019 Fantasy Outlook
Injuries prevented Fraley's career from taking off in his first full season after being selected by the Rays with the No. 77 overall pick in 2016. However, he hit .361/.449/.680 with 13 home runs and 39 steals over 40 games in the Australian Baseball League last offseason, which put him squarely back on the dynasty-league map. He followed that up by notching a 172 wRC+ in 260 plate appearances at High-A, but undisclosed injuries once again cost him time. An offseason trade to the Mariners put him on the national radar, which unfortunately ups the acquisition cost, but it was a boon for those who already had him rostered, as he goes from a club with ridiculous depth to an organization where he should have a clear path to playing time. Fraley is an excellent defender in center field, makes hard contact to all fields and rarely strikes out. The key going forward will be proving he can hold up over a full season. He will likely be assigned to Double-A. Read Past Outlooks

Thumb
September 29, 2019
Fraley is slated to have his sprained right thumb in a splint for approximately two more weeks and then will undergo multiple weeks of physical therapy, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The promising prospect should still be cleared well ahead of spring training, when he 's expected to make a significant push for a roster spot. Fraley injured the thumb Sept. 7, cutting short what would have been an extended audition over the final month.

AL FAAB Factor: Waiver Pickups of the Week
58 days ago
Erik Siegrist looks over the available talent on the AL waiver wire and notes a number of prospects who got pre-September promotions, including the Mariners' Jake Fraley.
2017 Fantasy Outlook
The 21-year-old center fielder slashed .238/.339/.364 with a homer, 18 RBI, seven triples and 33 stolen bases at short-season Hudson Valley after being selected 77th overall in the 2016 first-year player draft. He posted a solid 14.2 percent strikeout rate and 83 percent contact rate while batting at or near the top of the order. The speed and plate skills make him somewhat intriguing, but will Fraley hit enough against higher-level pitching to take full advantage of his speed? Time will tell. . . and for most, waiting it out will be a tough sell.
