It's an interesting thought. Especially for a guy like Frazier who seems to be a guy without a position. I know Dragons hitting coach Darren Bragg really likes him and his mentality. He sounds like he has all the mental tools for a catcher. However, if they would convert him, he'd pretty much have to start over again and that would delay his arrival in the big leagues. Plus he'll have to be protected on the 40 man in a year or two. You have to ask if his bat projects to be at the big league level in a couple of years, do you want to keep him in the minors learning a new position?
