CONFIRMED: Clint Frazier Will Join Yankees Saturday

UPDATE (12:45 a.m. EDT – July 1):


The Baby Bomber invasion continues as the Yankees reportedly will select the contract of No. 2 prospect Clint Frazier from AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Brendan McGair, a beat reporter for the Pawtucket Red Sox, tweeted a picture of Frazier on the phone, and said in a subsequent tweet that he heard Frazier say, “I’m going to Houston tomorrow.”

Multiple prospects have made their debuts this week for the Yankees. No. 11 prospect Tyler Wade joined the team earlier this week, then No. 9 Miguel Andújar and finally Dustin Fowler (who suffered a devastating knee injury just one inning into his debut).

The promotion of Frazier makes sense since the Yankees need another outfielder. They were not counting on Fowler’s injury, and decided to recall Andújar for the opener in Houston because the latter was already in Chicago. The RailRiders made it four innings into their game with the PawSox before it was suspended due to rain.

Frazier is slashing .257/.345/.474 with 12 homers and 42 RBIs for the RailRiders. He also appeared in 22 Spring Training games, slashing .273/.267/.432 with one home run and eight RBIs. The Yankees acquired Frazier from the Cleveland Indians along with Justus Sheffield, Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen for Andrew Miller.
