General manager Jerry Dipoto said Tuesday that Fraley's right thumb is fully healed, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Sprained ligaments in the thumb ended Fraley's season just a couple weeks into his callup, and he was forced to undergo multiple weeks of physical therapy. Fortunately, it sounds like Fraley will be able to have a normal offseason from here and will not be limited entering spring training. Dipoto said that Fraley will likely compete for a backup role behind Mitch Haniger, Mallex Smith and Kyle Lewis, though Haniger and Smith are widely known to be on the trade block. It's hard to imagine the Mariners won't find a way to clear room for Fraley, who thrived at the upper levels of the minor leagues last season.
Fraley is slated to have his sprained right thumb in a splint for approximately two more weeks and then will undergo multiple weeks of physical therapy, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The promising prospect should still be cleared well ahead of spring training, when he 's expected to make a significant push for a roster spot. Fraley injured the thumb Sept. 7, cutting short what would have been an extended audition over the final month.
Fraley has been shut down for the season due to sprained ligaments in his right thumb, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Things seemed to be trending in this direction, and now we have confirmation that the MRI revealed ligament damage. Fraley hit .150 with zero home runs, zero steals and a 14:0 K:BB in 41 MLB plate appearances after impressing at Double-A and Triple-A this season. Those struggles in a small sample at the MLB level should make him a cheap potential source of power and speed in 2020 drafts. Fraley is the favorite to break camp as the Mariners' starting center fielder.
