New York's 25-man roster will consist of five outfielders, all of whom have been above-average to elite players at varying points during their careers. Two of those outfielders are Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner - both 35 years old and on the wrong side of their production curves. And they are potentially blocking 24-year-old Clint Frazier, who some believe can become an above-average outfielder himself.
The Yankees' plans for Frazier appear hazy from the outside at this point. Frazier has plenty of potential and we have seen the electricity he can bring to the lineup. However, his 2018 season was wrought with the after-effects of a concussion that he simply could not shake. Frazier has been deemed healthy and according to his social media remarks, he is ready to fight for the starting job in left field.
