Yankees Need To Trade Clint Frazier And Brandon Drury NOW
This is a blog where you'll know if people stopped at reading the headline by their comments. I don't want to trade Clint Frazier because he doesn't belong with the Yankees in the Bronx. I want to trade Clint Frazier because he BELONGS in the Majors and I don't see how he gets that chance in the Bronx.
Frazier has excelled at the Triple A level in 38 games there, he's batting .312 with seven home runs, 11 doubles, 11 RBIs and a .947 OPS. Numbers that when combined with his speed and star power puts him on many big league rosters, however where is his spot with the Yankees? Right now Fraizer is up adding depth and covering for Brett Gardner who has a sore knee. If Gardner stays off the DL then Frazier will be headed back to Scranton. The Yankees outfield is crowded with reigning AL ROY Aaron Judge, reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Hicks(who Cashman loves) and Brett Gardner. Add in Jacoby Ellsbury who's clogging up the Yankees payroll through at least 2020 and where do you put Frazier? He's frustrated and right fully so.
Brandon Drury is an everyday third baseman who is also playing great at Triple A now that he's healthy. In 39 games, he has batted. 360 with four homers, 12 doubles, 25 RBIs and a .976 OPS. He has also logged a few games at first base. Both of these guys deserve to play in the bigs and if they are held back much longer there could be a mutiny that could hurt the rest of the Scranton roster as well as the Yankees themselves.
