Fletcher is a tough profile as he’s undersized at 5-foot-9, 175 pounds and he doesn’t have the speed for center field, but he does have strength in his frame and possess the most important tool. He rakes. The Arkansas recruit consistently made loud contact in games with his quick, loose swing from the left side of the plate. Though his timing was a little inconsistent as he tended to get out front, he went 6-for-12 with a double at the Area Code Games.

6/24/15 - Showed a good, loose swing during the workouts on Tuesday and that translated to the game on Wednesday. He went 1-for-4 with a run scored, squaring up a 92-mph fastball for a single back up the middle.

6/23/15 - Undersized at 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, but he flashed intriguing tools. His throws from the outfield were strong with good carry and his quick hands generated good bat speed.

3/17/19:Strong bodied center fielder at 5-foot-9, 190 pounds who has average-to-above average tools across the board. Showed an average arm with a quick transfer during both I/O and the games. Didn’t get a great look as Missouri put very few challenging balls in play, but he looked to play above average center field defense and his speed played into above average MLB range. However, his speed does not impact the game on offense. Starting from the back of the box and touching the middle of the first base bag, Fletcher ran a 4.36 (below average by MLB standards). He also has just three career stolen bases in 145 games in college. As a current middle of the diamond player, he makes up for a lack of speed production with power, belting 24 home runs and 31 doubles so far in his college career. He sets up in the back of the box with a slightly spread stance. Takes a longer stride, maintains good balance and creates separation. Above average raw power to his pull side with more bat strength than bat speed to his swing. Everything looks good in the batter’s box until he showed a choppy swing on several occasions. So far this spring he has shown improvement controlling the strike zone with 14 walks and 14 strikeouts in 19 games. Previous to this season he accumulated just 37 walks against 89 strikeouts in 547 plate appearances. Overall, Fletcher is well rounded with no real real weaknesses to his game. (Seifert)

10/10/18: A Southern California prep,Fletcher burst onto the scene in a big way as a freshman for Arkansas two seasons ago, showing elite athleticism and serious pop with 12 homers and 37 RBIs. But his most impressive showing was last season. Though he began the year in slow fashion, he turned things around at the midseason mark and showed why he’s one of the nation’s premier players and prospects down the stretch. He’s certainly not a physical specimen at just 5-foot-9, 185 pounds, but don’t let the size fool you, Fletcher is oozing with tools.He’s a terrific athlete with plus speed and could steal more bases at the next level. With an average arm, he's an above average to plus defender in center field, showing good speed and consistently taking good routes to the ball. Offensively, Fletcher has above average bat speed forgap power and occasional over the fence pop to his pull side. However, heis a streaky hitter, especially when he tries to get big and pull the ball. He is much better off when he stays in the middle of field. He will need to find ways to get on base more often and could improve by cutting down on his strikeouts.Size excluded, there are few players in college baseball who can match his skill set. (Rogers)
