Down goes Frazier?
With the baseball trade deadline creeping up quickly, the Yankees have a difficult situation on their hand. Their outfield is log jammed with seemingly with no space for Clint Frazier. Red Thunder has slashed .283/.330/.513 in just 53 games with 11 home runs and 34 RBI’s. Frazier was visually and verbally upset with being sent back down to Triple-A in multiple interviews. The Yankees as an organization are typically a no nonsense team, so does that make it easier for them to trade him?
In comes the question of the rotation: do they need another starter? Will it be an ace or maybe a back of the rotation starter? The Yankees have been linked to multiple high profile pitchers such as Trevor Bauer, Madison Bumgarner, and even Noah Syndergaard. It seems as if the team is against losing one of their top prospects, Deivi Garcia. Packaging Clint Fraizer with other prospects might be their only way to acquire a notable pitcher.
Clint seems to be a guaranteed everyday starter and possibly even an All-Star for many years to come. At only 24 years old, the right fielder possesses elite bat speed, power, and coming up clutch. Many teams have inquired about the availability of him, and it has become clear that he is on the table. Will the Yankees look to deal Frazier for a top ace, or will they hold onto him with hopes he can become a cornerstone of their own?
