Yankees minor league outfielder Clint Frazier will make his team debut for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre tonight as the RailRiders take on Leigh Valley.
Frazier, who the Yankees acquired in the Andrew Miller trade, will bat second and play left field. After the trade, Frazier immediately became the Yankees top prospect and at just 21-years-old, he has an opportunity to break camp next year with the big league club. Frazier has hit .273 with 13 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A for the Cleveland Indians organization.
Clint Frazier makes his RailRiders debut tonight, playing LF and batting second. Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Tyler Austin hit behind him.
Also, making his return to the lineup for the RailRiders is another outfielder in Aaron Judge, who has been on the Disabled List since July 9. He will bat third behind Frazier.
Since the recent trades, Co-Owner Hal Steinnbrenner and General Manager Brian Cashman admitted fans may be seeing a youth movement with Judge, Gary Sanchez and Tyler Austin as possible candidates to be brought up to the major leagues as soon as this week.
The Yankees need to see if Judge is fully healthy and can get back to his previous hot streak in order for him to be called up. But with Carlos Beltran off to Texas, Judge will more than likely get the opportunity to prove right field is his spot to lose.
