The Yankees have had an injury-riddled season. Key players at every position have been out for almost the entire year, and the club has never actually fielded a full-strength lineup. By not adding at the trade deadline, general manager Brian Cashman has put all his chips on the returns of injured stars Luis Severino, Dellin Betances and Giancarlo Stanton to improve the team.
If the Yankees are looking for immediate game-changers though, they have the ability to add a player who's seventh on the team in home runs, sixth in OPS, fourth in average and third in SLG (despite not playing a Major League game in almost a month and a half) with just a phone call to Scranton.
So, why aren't the Yankees looking to recall Clint Frazier, clearly one of the team's top hitters, before a crucial four-game set against the Boston Red Sox?
