Clint Frazier, the top outfield prospect in the New York Yankees organization, continued his power surge on Friday night in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
On Friday night, the 22-year-old went off on the Toledo Mud Hens (Detroit Tigers) and finished his night 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and a walk in an eventual 4-2 win for the RailRiders.
Frazier’s home run came in the top of the second inning off William Cuevas to give Scranton a 1-0 lead. It was a moonshot off the left-field scoreboard for his third homer in as many games.
One of the most highly touted prospects in the game today is now 13-for-42 (.310) over the last ten games and Frazier’s four home runs in that same span have helped him climb to the top of the team’s leaderboard in homers with nine. He’s also tied with Pedro Alvarez for the fourth-most dingers in the International League.
Overall, Frazier is slashing .261/.346/.528 with the league’s fourth-best slugging percentage and the eighth-best OPS.
It’s certainly a fun time to catch some games at PNC Field this Summer. The lineup on Friday night featured Frazier, Gleyber Torres, Dustin Fowler, Tyler Wade and Chance Adams on the hill. All five of these prospects have made their way onto fan’s radars and it’s a matter of time before the next wave of Baby Bombers starts wrecking havoc in the Bronx.
