MLB Draft 2013 scouting report round-up: OF Clint Frazier

Mike Stobe

Frazier has signed with Georgia but could be ready to start playing professionally now.

When you hit six home runs in the first seven games of your senior season, people tend to take notice. High schooler Clint Frazier did just that, and is trying to show that he can offer a ton of promise to a team picking in the top 10-15 of the first round. His numbers speak for themselves. He holds the Loganville (Ga.) High School records for runs scored in a season, RBI in a season and career, and home runs in a season. Oh, and he has nearly doubled the school's career home run mark, which was originally set by current Oakland Athletic Brandon Moss. SB Nation's blog Minor League Ball lauds Frazier as a five-tool player who has "a chance to be a star." Though he might eventually outgrow center field, he is in a position now where teams might jump to take him regardless of where he ends up playing in the field.

What they're saying

  • Matt Garrioch, Minor League Ball: "Everything you have read about gritty players can be said about Frazier. The difference is everything you've heard about 5 tool players can be said as well."
  • Nick Faleris, Baseball Prospectus: "Frazier has the best bat speed in the entire draft class and produces easy plus raw power in-game at the amateur level."
  • Dave Perkin, Sports Illustrated: "He has legitimate five-tool talent, possesses electric bat speed and is tremendously fast, which allows him to steal bases and be an outstanding defensive player. His closest major league comparison is probably Pirates star Andrew McCutchen."
