Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Aaron Fuller played in the minor leagues from 1993 to 1999.

Drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 31st round of the 1993 amateur draft (and signed by scout Fay Thompson), Fuller began his professional career that season. In 59 games split between the GCL Red Sox and Utica Blue Sox, he hit .267/.355/.310 with 27 stolen bases.

The following year, with the Sarasota Red Sox, he hit .261/.388/.326 with 45 stolen bases and 89 runs scored in 118 games, leading the Florida State League in runs scored and walks (82) and finishing second behind Lonell Roberts in steals.

After struggling in 1995 - he hit .223/.288/.303 with 27 stolen bases in 107 games split between the Visalia Oaks and Trenton Thunder - Fuller rebounded in 1996 by hitting .300/.390/.404 with 33 stolen bases in a season mostly spent with Sarasota (he also spent a game with the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox, his only game at that level). He was an FSL All-Star that year.

With the Trenton Thunder in 1997, Fuller hit .260/.384/.358 with 40 stolen bases in 128 games. He tied Dan Held for third in the Eastern League in plate appearances (589), finished first in steals and second behind Doug Mientkiewicz in walks (95).

He wound up in the Chicago Cubs organization in 1998, hitting .295/.421/.442 with 18 stolen bases in 79 games for the Daytona Cubs. In 1999, his final season, he hit the independent circuit, batting .261/.413/.374 with 17 stolen bases in 70 games for the Sacramento Steelheads of the Western League.

Overall, Fuller hit .266/.376/.360 with 207 stolen bases in 677 games. Not a slugger, he hit only 21 home runs.

He is the nephew of Jerry Royster.
