Following the Yankees’ thrilling 6-5 comeback win over the Angels on Wednesday night, Aaron Boone told reporters that Clint Frazier will be placed on the Injured List with an ankle injury. Joe Harvey will be recalled from Scranton.
Frazier was sent for an MRI on his left ankle before the game, which revealed a small tear. He got hurt on Monday night after he scrambled back to second base on a pickoff attempt and jammed his foot into the bag. The Yankees initially didn’t feel like an MRI was needed, but Frazier experienced increased swelling and bruising on Wednesday.
Boone said he expects Frazier to be sidelined for about two weeks, although he could come back sooner. If and when Frazier comes back, one has to wonder how a small tear in his ankle will affect his play for the remainder of the season
Clint Frazier is heading to the injured list tomorrow. It could be a 10-14 day stint. The MRI showed a partial tear within the ankle. Clint still thinks he could play. Also, Joe Harvey will come back up now.
Frazier can’t seem to catch a break. After being sidelined for most of last year with a concussion, the 24-year-old was making the most of his chance at everyday playing time in 2019, hitting .324/.342/.632 with six homers and 17 RBI in 18 games.
The Yankees currently have an improbable six-game win streak. They’ve used the motto “Next Man Up” in the early going this season, but this is really getting ridiculous.
Oh, hi. It’s April 25. Here’s your updated Yankees IL tally:
