The Yankees have placed Clint Frazier on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain and have reactivated Aaron Hicks, the team announced.
Frazier was penciled into the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays but was a late scratch because of the injury. He said he'd been experiencing pain over the past few days, but it came to a head during batting practice.
"I've been feeling it for a few days," Frazier told reporters Wednesday. "It definitely wasn't in BP today. I was feeling some discomfort in my side. It's not any worse. It's maintained its discomfort level. It's just a matter of wanting to make sure everything's all right before I keep going."I've been telling [the trainers] it's been pretty tender the last few days. I think Joe just saw me fiddling with my side in BP today and just wanted to give me a day."
Hicks was placed on the DL in late June with the same injury as Frazier. The outfielder had been on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton and Double-A Trenton, where he went 8-for-24 in seven games. He was hitting .290 with 10 homers and 37 RBIs before the injury.
