CLEVELAND — The Tribe has snagged a high school outfielder with their first pick in the Major League Baseball draft.

Selecting 5th overall, the Indians selected 18-year-old Clint Frazier, from Loganville High School in Loganville, Georgia.

Frazier batted .485 in his senior year, with 17 homers and 45 RBI in 32 games. Following the season, the right-handed hitter was named the Gatorade National Baseball Player of the Year.

Frazier blasted 63 homers throughout his high school career, and led the Red Devils to the AAAA Georgia state title in 2012.

He has a verbal commit to attend the University of Georgia and is the first overall high school position player selected in the 2013 draft.
