Clint Frazier has arrived once again and he’s making it abundantly clear that he has no intentions of allowing the New York Yankees to send him back to Scranton.

Kelly's Comments

Clint Frazier is coming off an almost completely lost year due to injuries. He’s trying to crack into an outfield rotation that is stacked with talent when at full strength. He also wants to make it absolutely impossible for Brain Cashman to send him back to Triple-A.

… and he’s succeeding.

The outfielder made his presence felt almost immediately following his call up to replace an injured Giancarlo Stanton on the roster. Frazier belted three home runs in two games, a go-ahead three-run shot on Saturday and two in an absolute rout of the Orioles on Sunday.

His two home runs on Sunday came en route to a four-hit day and four RBI.

Frazier looks locked in and comfortable at the plate, putting solid contact on the ball in nearly every at-bat. He’s hitting the ball hard and using the whole field. Frazier has also shown a lot of patience at the plate, clawing through at-bats until he gets a pitch he can do damage with.

Essentially, he plans on making it impossible for the Yankees to consider sending him back to Scranton. When the roster is finally at full strength, Frazier will still be on it.

I’m all here for it. I’ve been all in on Clint Frazier since he cracked the roster for the first time in 2017. Even if the results haven’t always been there, anyone can tell you that this kid is a ballplayer. He’s been known for his insane bat speed and now that he’s more patient at the plate, he’s using that bat speed to find bleachers.

Clint Frazier is here to stay. Whether it’s in an outfield rotation or as an everyday starter, he will force his way into this lineup. Frazier is going to be a big-time producer for a team with lofty aspirations.

I’m still all in on Wilding, the baseball artist formerly known as Red Thunder.

Lifetime ballplayer and Yankee fan. Strongly believe that the eye-test and advanced stats can be used together instead of against each other.
