Yankees second ranked prospect and the current starting left fielder for Triple A Scranton/Wilkes Barre Railriders, Clint Frazier, had been hot as of late, after getting off to an unusually slow start to the season.
Frazier has been consistently hitting balls hard, but believes he has been unlucky thus far as his average on expected balls put in play is over .350, but his actual average is currently sitting at .242. Regardless of his start, Frazier remains one of the Yankees prized young prospects.
However, sitting at 0-3 on Monday night in the bottom of the ninth with the red hot Dustin Fowler representing the winning run on second base after driving in Tyler Wade to tie the game, some of Frazier’s frustrations boiled over as he went full Bo Jackson on his bat after failing to drive in the winning run and walking off the Pawtucket Red Sox.

We knew that Frazier had “legendary bat speed” according to Brian Cashman, but I don’t think he had this in mind when he made those comments.
