New York Yankees Cut One-Time Top Prospect

The New York Yankees have designated outfielder Clint Frazier for assignment in a move that has set off their fan base.

Frazier was once considered one of the top prospects in the Yankees organization. He appeared in 66 games last season and struggled a tremendous amount. Frazier slashed .186/.317/.317 with only five HR and 15 RBI. It was a bit of a longer leash for the outfielder over 2020 when he only dressed for 39 big league games but also put up 26 RBI. 

There's always been huge expectations on Frazier's back and a bunch of that comes from his confidence and swag. He looked like someone who carried a swing that could do some serious damage in the Bronx but that ended up not being the case at all.

The Yankees were busy on Friday as they also let go Rougned Odor, and Tyler Wade.

As for Frazier he's had some health scares that hopefully can get sorted so he can get his career back on track. Last season he struggled with concussions and missed three months due to dizziness and vision-related issues.

There's going to be some interest league wide in bringing in the outfielder for a minor-league look, so expect to see Frazier at a spring training camp come 2022.
