Player Outlook
Acquired from Seattle prior to the 2022 season, Jake Fraley has emerged as a quality platoon outfielder/DH in his two years with Cincinnati. He spent time on the injured list last season with wrist and toe injuries, the latter of which required October surgery to repair. Fraley is expected to be fully ready for the start of spring training in 2024. Reds manager David Bell was rigid in his usage of Fraley, limiting him to a mere four starts and 41 plate appearances against left-handed pitching all season. When he had the platoon advantage, Fraley slashed .268/.348/.467 with all 15 of his home runs. He's done a better job of being aggressive within the strike zone, adding nearly 12 percentage points to his Z-Swing% over the past two years, and the speed element of his game showed up in 2023 in the form of 21 steals in 26 attempts. The fact that he doesn't play against lefty pitching limits his counting-stat upside, but among strict platoon bats in MLB, Fraley is right up there with (or just behind) the best.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Returns with two hits, stolen base

    Fraley went 2-for-4 with two singles and a stolen base in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Dodgers. He was picked off and caught stealing on another attempt. After missing three starts due to a hand injury, Fraley was back in the cleanup spot against right-hander Walker Buehler. Fraley stole a base right away after his single in the first inning, his eighth steal of the campaign, which puts him on pace to surpass 20 stolen bases for a second consecutive season. The power has been severely lacking, however, as he still sits with just one home run and his SLG is down nearly 80 points from a year ago.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Back in lineup

    Fraley (hand) is starting in right field Saturday versus the Dodgers. Fraley has been out of the Reds' lineup for the past three games after suffering a bruised hand during Tuesday's contest, though he was used as a pinch runner Thursday. He appears to have fully recovered ahead of Saturday's game and will now look to get hot at the plate after beginning the year with a .692 OPS -- his worst mark since joining the Reds in 2022.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Still on bench

    Fraley (hand) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers. Fraley hasn't started a game since getting hit in the hand by a pitch Tuesday against San Diego. However, he's been utilized as a pinch runner since sustaining the injury but Fraley is ready to go, per Mark Sheldon of MLB.com, and could enter the game off the bench. Jacob Hurtubise will start in right field and bat ninth Friday.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Used as pinch runner

    Fraley (hand) entered Thursday's 6-4 extra-inning loss to the Padres as a pinch runner in the 10th inning. The outfielder ran for Jeimer Candelario, who had walked, and was presumably only going to be allowed to run the bases had the game continued. The Reds didn't wind up scoring in the extra frame, but the usage suggests Fraley could return to the lineup at some point during a weekend series against the Dodgers.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Plans to test out hand with swings

    Fraley plans to test out his injured right hand with some swings Thursday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. X-rays on Fraley's hand came back clean after he exited Tuesday's contest versus the Padres following a hit by pitch. However, he still has some swelling and will be absent from the lineup Thursday for a second straight day. The outfielder should be considered day-to-day.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Out of lineup with hand injury

    Fraley (hand) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres. Fraley will miss out on a second consecutive start while he manages a bruised and swollen right hand. The Reds seem to be viewing Fraley as day-to-day, so he could be available off the bench in the series finale.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: X-rays negative

    X-rays on Fraley's right hand came back negative Tuesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Fraley is reportedly dealing with swelling after taking a pitch off his hand during the first inning of Tuesday's contest, but he seems to have avoided a serious injury. The Reds will re-evaluate his hand Wednesday, but it's likely the 28-year-old outfielder sits out a game or two in order to recover.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Leaves Tuesday with hand injury

    Fraley left Tuesday night's game against the Padres after getting hit by a pitch on the hand in the first inning. Fraley ran the bases after the HBP but then retreated to the clubhouse at the end of the inning. Stuart Fairchild replaced Fraley in the game.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Three hits, steal in loss

    Fraley went 3-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Giants. Fraley was the only Cincinnati hitter with multiple hits in the contest. He had gone 14 games without a multi-hit effort, batting a paltry .132 (5-for-38) in that span. That stretch put a significant damper on the outfielder's solid start to the year, but he's still slashing .304/.368/.392 with six steals, one home run, five RBI and 16 runs scored over 87 plate appearances. Fraley sat out a couple of games versus right-handed pitchers early in May, but it appears that was temporary as he has resumed a strong-side platoon role between right field and designated hitter.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Idle against lefty

    Fraley is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. Fraley and fellow lefty hitter Will Benson will head to the bench Wednesday while southpaw Jordan Montgomery toes the slab for Arizona. Luke Maile and Stuart Fairchild will join the lineup as the starters at designated hitter and in right field, respectively, while Fraley and Benson sit.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Sits against right-hander again

    Fraley is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres. For the second straight day, Fraley finds himself on the bench with a right-handed pitcher (Joe Musgrove) on the hill. The Reds haven't indicated that Fraley is nursing an injury, but the outfielder has thus far struggled to bounce back since returning to the lineup after a week-long absence due to an illness. In his first three games back in action, Fraley went 0-for-11 with five strikeouts. If Fraley is unable to show improvement in his subsequent starting opportunities, he could fade into more of a part-time role for Cincinnati.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Walks, scores in return

    Fraley went 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored in Saturday's 8-4 win over Texas. Fraley, who returned from a week-long absence due to an illness, walked in his first plate appearance and came around to score. He was eventually removed late in the game as part of a defensive realignment.

Fraley returned to the team but was not in the starting lineup against a right-hander, against whom the lefty-hitter typically starts. "He's back," manager David Bell said. "I wanted him to go through a full day of work today and not start him." Bell added that Fraley will be available to start Saturday, when the Reds face right-hander Michael Lorenzen.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Still out Thursday

    Fraley (illness) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

According to Mark Sheldon of MLB.com, manager David Bell relayed Wednesday that Fraley has been showing improvement, so the Reds are seemingly hopeful that the 28-year-old outfielder will return to action at some point during the weekend series versus the Rangers.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Won't start Sunday

    Fraley is not in the Reds' starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels due to an illness, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Fraley won't start for a second consecutive game, though he did pinch hit for Jonathan India (illness) in Saturday's contest. Fraley would normally get the start against a right-hander, but he appears to have picked up the bug that India has. Fraley is 1-for-10 over his last four appearances, which has slowed down his otherwise hot start to the season. He's slashing .362/.423/.511 with four doubles, one home run and four RBI over 52 plate appearances while stealing five bases.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Logs fourth straight multi-hit game

    Fraley went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Monday's loss to the Mariners. Fraley was caught trying to swipe a bag after stealing three bases Sunday, but he put his power on display with an RBI double in the fourth inning and a solo homer to right field in the seventh. He's recorded two hits in four straight contests, going 8-for-16 (.500) with seven runs and four RBI over that span. Fraley routinely sits against left-handed pitching, but he's been very productive when in the lineup, slashing .432/.462/.622 with 12 runs, four RBI and four steals through 39 plate appearances.
