The first report came from Brendan McGair, who covers the Pawtucket RedSox. McGair tweeted that Frazier was on the phone, and said “I’m going to Houston tomorrow.”
According to YES Network’s Jack Curry, the Yankees considered calling up the 22-year-old to replace the injured Dustin Fowler, but elected to call-up Miguel Andujar instead. Curry is also confirming the reports that Frazier is likely to join the big league club on Saturday.
The 22-year-old was acquired last summer in the trade that sent Andrew Miller to the Cleveland Indians. In 73 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Frazier has posted a slash line of .257/.345/.474.
As of this moment, the Yankees have not made an official announcement in regards to calling up Frazier. Any move regarding Frazier will likely be announce prior to tomorrow’s game.
