Clint Frazier said he was ready, and the Yankees called him up to the big leagues for their series against the Nationals. Well, one game was suspended and the other was postponed, both due to inclement weather.
That means Frazier will travel with the team to Kansas City now to prove that he was worth the call up. He also wants to prove to the Yankees that he is worth keeping instead of being used as a trade chip down the road.
Frazier has been killing minor-league pitching as he produced a .362 average with three homers and four RBI in 12 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barres. He was on deck to finally get back to the plate as a Yankee, but Miguel Andujar grounded out in the fifth inning on Monday before the skies opened up for good.
Frazier is simply looking to prove himself at the big-league level.
"I just want to get an opportunity,'' Frazier said. "I didn't want to go back down without at least getting one at-bat to try to push for a spot."
But can he do enought to show the Yankees that he would be better on their team instead of somewhere else? The Baseball In Night New York -- SNY's Doug Williams, Jon Hein, Andy Martino, and Todd Zeile -- discuss what Frazier's future with the Yankees should look like down the road.
