Frazier’s story is an interesting one. The 24-year-old hit 11 home runs in just 53 games at the MLB level in 2019. He was suspect defensively, though, and clashed with the New York media at times before being sent down. It’s not clear if that played a role in the fact that he hasn’t been back up, and he was the subject of numerous trade rumors in late July. The fact that he remained in Triple-A despite a slew of injuries indicated that the Yankees just didn’t want him up until now. He still has no guarantee of a major role down the stretch.
