Frazier is an 18-year-old high school prospect out of Loganville High School in Georgia. The 6-foot-1, 190 pounder hit .485 with 17 homers and 45 RBI this past season. Frazier had recently converted from the hot corner to center field, and it’s possible that he could stay there.
Per Jim Callis of Baseball America, Frazier will get a $3.5 million signing bonus from the Indians. That is approximately $787,000 below the expected slot line. It was reported that Frazier had committed to the University of Georgia prior to the draft.
#Indians, No. 5 overall pick Clint Frazier agree to $3.5 mil. Georgia HS OF was best HS prospect, best bat speed in #mlbdraft, possible CF.
Frazier was the Gatorade High School Player of the Year this year, and his bat speed made him the best high-school prospect in this draft. Baseball America had them at #4 on their Top 100 list on draft day.
