Following today’s 10-1 victory over the Royals, the Yankees announced they have optioned Clint Frazier to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Frazier was recalled just five days ago prior to the recent three game series in Kansas City.
The 23-year-old’s latest stint in the Big Leagues was brief as the outfielder appeared in only one game for the Bombers, collecting one hit in two plate appearances.
Frazier holds a career .235 batting average with four home runs and 17 RBI in parts of two seasons with the Yankees.
With the impending return of both Greg Bird and Brandon Drury, the Yankees will need a pair of open roster spots to accommodate both players.
Although sending Frazier down makes the process easier, the team must figure out where Bird and Drury fit sooner rather than later. Considering the amount of depth on the current roster, the front office will be forced to make some tough decisions in the coming days.
