23-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Seattle Mariners AA
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

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.

Fraley, who went 2-for-2 with a double, home run and three total RBI in Tuesday's 7-7 Cactus League tie with the Padres, has caught the eye of manager Scott Servais with his play this spring, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "Jake has had an unbelievable spring," Servais said. "Like many of these guys who've come to the organization, they really want to give a strong impression and he's handled everything we've thrown at him. He's got power, has done a nice job defensively, runs the bases pretty well, he's got some speed."
