Clint Frazier is no longer one of the two highest ranked high school baseball players in the state of Georgia. Now he is a member of the Cleveland Indians organization pending their being able to sign him to a deal. That shouldn’t be a problem as he is very excited about the prospect of being a part of the Indians. One surprise was that Frazier, who spent a lot of time at third base in high school, would be starting his professional baseball career as an outfielder.

Confidence has never been a problem for Frazier who has constantly been compared and sized up with the other highest ranked baseball player in Georgia, Austin Meadows, since the two were nine years old. The only knock against Frazier has been his size because he stands barely at 6’-0” and around 190 lbs. Size isn’t an issue though and he has proved it behind any doubt throughout his high school career. Playing in the outfield won’t be a problem either. He will be a future star, in all likelihood, no matter where he plays.

He isn’t exactly tiny in size but for a guy thought to have a good bit of power potential, it seems to be small. The secret to his power is in his quick and powerful swing. The Indians are very high on him however. They are high enough on him in fact that he went at number five overall while his GA counterpart Meadows went to the Pittsburgh Pirates at the ninth pick overall. It will be interesting if these two have mirroring careers from here throughout their baseball lives. As far as the Indians are concerned however, Frazier is the best fit for them.
