With Jordan Montgomery injured and ruled out for the whole season, the New York Yankees are looking for a replacement that could fill the spot that the pitcher left in the starting rotation, and they are willing to trade one of their most promising players: Clint Frazier.
Although the Yankees have plenty of talent on their farm, they are not willing to give away some of their best top prospects, but Clint Frazier could be the player that it is most likely to be traded by the New York Team.
According to Jon Heyman of Fan Rag Sports, Frazier does not have too many opportunities to play with the Yankees, as they already have Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks, Brett Gardner and Giancarlo Stanton in the outfield.
However, the Yankees have given him some playtime recently, but these opportunities are more like a showcase for other teams to see of what Frazier is capable of.
Frazier was handled like the trade piece that Yankees offered to Pittsburgh Pirates by Gerrit Cole, a change that the Houston Astros finally made. In three games in the majors, Frazier has connected three hits. In 32 games in the minors, Frazier hit .310 with 6 homers and 10 RBIs.
