Red flags were raised after seeing Clint Frazier not in the lineup against the Angels on Tuesday night, but manager Aaron Boone assured the media that there was nothing "too serious," per The Athletic's Lindsey Adler.
Frazier tweaked his left ankle last night in the Yankees' 14-inning win in Anaheim, but he stayed in the game. Yankees fans will certainly hold their breath because they've heard the team sitting players for "precautionary" reasons.
Boone, though, said he wouldn't mind putting Frazier in if he needed to. He claimed he "wouldn't hesitate" if he needed to come off the bench to pinch hit in a big spot.
Frazier has stepped up with all these injured Yankees on the IL. He is hitting .324/.342/.632 with six homers and 17 RBI. That rare bat speed and first-round talent GM Brian Cashman traded for finally seems to be working out in pinstripes, as he has battled other injuries for the past two seasons.
Sitting on the bench tonight, though, Tyler Wade will take over for Frazier in left field.
