WASHINGTON -It seems Clint Frazier will get a chance.
How long does it take is the question.
The 23-year-old outfielder arrived in Washington on Monday and was on Tuesday night for the Yankees against the Nationals activated.
The Yankees named right-handed David Hale for use to make room for Frazier.
There are indications that Yankees' four outfielders – Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Brett Gardner and Aaron Hicks – are healthy, but if the Yankees played two games without the designated hitter, Frazier manager Aaron Boone would be a right-handed player give possibility.
Frazier missed most of the spring and the start of the regular season due to a concussion on February 24th. However, since returning from the Invalidity List on May 2, he is on fire with three homers, three doubles and two triples for Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre.
"Everything he does at this level will not surprise me, because he is an extremely talented, high-profile player and obviously with one. There is a lot of motivation to be an impact player," said General Manager Brian Cashman on Monday. "It's good to see that he plays his skills."
Frazier had an impressive debut in the big league on July 1
He had a rather quiet finish to the 2017 season, but came into the spring, determined to make the Yankees' decision in relation to their outfield difficult, even with the quartet mentioned above well ahead of him on the depth chart.
"I'm here to win a place," Frazier said early at the camp. "That will be the same answer that I give from now on, in my head I break with the crew, that is the goal and that is the vision I have for myself."
Concussion shorted, but another option seems to be in sight.
