Yankees send Clint Frazier down after making Encarnacion deal

Clint Frazier

Clint Frazier continues to struggle to nail down a spot on the New York Yankees’ roster.

Manager Aaron Boone announced Sunday that Frazier would be sent down to Triple-A to clear a roster spot for trade acquisition Edwin Encarnacion.

The 24-year-old outfielder just can’t seem to do right by the Yankees. He’s been squeezed out of a roster spot despite hitting .285 with 11 home runs this season. Ultimately, the choice came down to either Frazier or Brett Gardner. While Gardner hasn’t performed as well as Frazier offensively, he’s a veteran with no options and a wealth of experience, which isn’t true of Frazier.

Frazier has also clashed with the New York media recently. He may well end up as trade bait before the July 31 deadline, as he just can’t seem to stick due to the immense depth of their roster.
