New York Yankees’ top prospect, Clint Frazier, was recorded in the batting cages showing off his “legendary” bat speed.
Jack Curry released a video on Twitter revealing a snippet from a future “Yankees Access” show featuring the stud prospect and one round in the cages.
Frazier, who Brian Cashman traded reliever Andrew Miller to the Cleveland Indians for, is on the fast track to the major leagues thanks to what the Yankees’ GM calls “legendary bat speed.”
Don’t take a round of batting practice as the only example, though:
Last season between Double-A Akron (Indians) and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Yankees), the 22-year old hit 16 home runs in 119 games.
MLB Pipeline suggests this kid has the ceiling of an All-Star and with an MLB estimated time of arrival of 2017, Frazier could soon wreck havoc in the Bronx.
