New York Yankees prospects who could make their MLB debuts in 2017

Clint Frazier

Ever since being acquired in the deal that sent Andrew Miller to the Cleveland Indians, Clint Frazier has established up some ridiculous hype.

Seriously, from his Twitter personality to his “legendary” bat speed, he’s creating some noise across Yankee-land.

If you look at what the 22-year old did after his assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, however, you’ll see that he didn’t quite live up to that hype.

In 25 games, Frazier slashed a mere .228/.278/.396 and struck out 29.7% of the time with just three homers. Overall in 2016, he maintained an OPS of .782, a discouraging sign from one of the organization’s top prospects.

Yet, all the tools are there — lightning quick bat able to generate moonshots and athleticism that suggests the ceiling of an All-Star with an MLB ETA of 2017.

We’re only waiting for the results, and if Frazier ends up lighting up the Electric City this season, general manager Brian Cashman may be forced to make some room for him in the Bronx.
