4. Clint Frazier | OF | Age: 25

While Frazier has the tools to be a consistently productive hitter in the MLB, there are questions abound with the outfielder. First and foremost comes his fielding. What Frazier put on the field in 2019 was hard to watch. It probably wasn’t as bad as it seemed, but Frazier did himself no favors with a lack of production in the field.

Frazier has chance to grab one of the final roster spots coming out of spring training. With Aaron Hicks likely to be placed on the 60-day injured list after undergoing Tommy John surgery this offseason, Frazier will be competing with guys like Mike Tauchman and Estevan Florial for the final outfield spot on the roster.

It is clear Frazier is getting frustrated spending most of his time down in the minor leagues, but he should be entering spring training with a chip on his shoulder.
