Although he won’t be a free agent for another two years, the recruiting of Bryce Harper may have started a little early – thanks in part to newly acquired top Yankees prospect, Clint Frazier.
Frazier, known for his flowing red locks, announced on twitter that he shaved part of his head late Wednesday night. Harper, who is also known for his lustrous hair, tweeted at Frazier that he’d like to see the new do. Frazier tweeted a pic and said – “maybe i can give you some hair pointers when you join the yankees in the future.” Here’s the exchange below:
Harper responded by telling Frazier to learn from fellow National Jayson Werth. A few weeks ago, Frazier said on our podcast that his hair has become somewhat of a trademark and a calling card of his.
Frazier could be ready for the Bronx by the summer of 2017. He’s slated to begin the year at Scranton, and could get the call earlier if his play dictates it. The Yankees and their fans are hoping his bat becomes as big as his hair.
As for Bryce Harper on the Yankees? We’ll have to wait a few years to find out.
