Dreaming of Draft Stars- Clint Frazier

by Jared Webb @webberoo11

Clint Frazier 6'0"/190 OF R/R
Loganville HS (Loganville, Ga.)- University of Georgia commitment

Frazier is by far my favorite HS player coming into this draft.  He is a five-tool guy who plays the game with grit.  Some scouts say he has the most explosive bat in the draft with plus to plus plus power and very good bat to ball ability.   

Clint pairs amazing bat speed and plus power with really good speed, posting 6.4 times to first base.  He isn't as big as fellow Georgia prospect Austin Meadows, but Frazier consistently performs at high levels .  His speed and plus plus arm make him a lock to stay in CF.  He is already a very well built athlete and just needs to keep getting better as he goes.   

This is a bit of a weird comparison, but I like to think of Frazier as a more athletic Craig Biggio.  Everything I read about Frazier indicates that he is a true ballplayer who leaves it all on the field.   

Frazier finished second at in the Under Amour All-America Game home run derby held at Wrigley Field.  He was said to be the most impressive slugger in the showing, logging the longest distance and  shortest time to impact with the stands.  The only negative statement I've been able to find is that his swing has a slight hitch, but it's difficult to argue with his results.  Deep down I hope the Astros take Frazier 1-1, and he will definitely make a case to come off the board fast.  My guess is that he will selected in the first five picks in the 2013 draft.

  You will find Clint obliterating the ball at 2:17.  It will give you a great idea of his bat speed and power.
