The Yankees promoted outfielder Clint Frazier to the active roster to serve as New York's 26th man for Monday's doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers, the team announced Monday.
Manager Aaron Boone wasted no time putting Frazier in the lineup for Game 1. He will bat seventh and play left field for New York.
The 23-year-old Frazier has been hitting .327/.398/.604 with five home runs and eight RBIs in 25 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season.
Domingo German, who was originally scheduled to pitch on Sunday, will start Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against Detroit's Mike Fiers. Luis Severino will face Drew VerHagen in Game 1.
Manager Aaron Boone also said reliever Adam Warren, who has not pitched since April 20 due to a strained back, could also be activated off the disabled list soon.
"I think there is a chance he could be activated in some way in Detroit,'' Boone said of Warren, according to the New York Post's George A. King III.
Following Monday's doubleheader, the Yankees have a two-game road series against the Toronto Blue Jays and then play the Mets next weekend at Citi Field.
