Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier is ready to put 2018 behind him.
The 24-year-old sustained two concussions last season, the latter forcing him to shut down for the second half of the season as he struggled to find at-bats at the major league level.
Yet Frazier said on Tuesday that he is fully healthy now after a long offseason of rehab that included attending concerts and sitting as close as possible to the stage.
"I was having trouble with my vestibular system," Frazier said. "Bright lights, loud noises bothered me and hindered my every day lifestyle. My doctor told me I had to do certain things to emulate being in Yankee Stadium. I had to get as close to the concert stage -- I'm not complaining at all -- I had a good offseason ... ultimately it was rehab in a way. It was fun rehab. I'm hoping it's enough and I'm feeling good right now."
Frazier is competing to make the 25-man roster and is likely to garner a bench spot behind a crowded Yankees outfield that consists of Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks, Giancarlo Stanton and Brett Gardner.
Regardless of where Frazier falls, the outfielder was giddy heading to the first full squad workout on Tuesday.
"I was dancing in my car on my way over here," he said. "Six-fifty (a.m.) rolled around I was hopping out of bed and I was first pitch swinging. I'm really excited. I can genuinely say this is the most excited I've been."
