Mariano Rivera and Mike Mussina headline 2019 Hall of Fame Class

Earlier today, Major League Baseball announced the results of this year’s Hall of Fame voting, and two former Yankees received the call to Cooperstown: Mike Mussina and Mariano Rivera. These two pitching greats, along with Edgar Martinez and the late Roy Halladay, will officially be enshrined later this year on Sunday, July 21.

BREAKING: Yankees call up Clint Frazier from AAA

The Yankees made a surprising move today, calling up outfielder Clint Frazier from AAA to join the team in Washington this week, confirmed by Joel Sherman of the NY Post and MLB Network. The headliner in the Andrew Miller trade in 2016, Frazier spent a short stint in the Bronx last summer with the Bombers, batting .231 with four HR and 17 RBI, but an oblique strain limited his time in the majors to only 22 games.

After the Giancarlo Stanton trade, it looked like Frazier was going to be the odd man out of the outfielders on the roster, and making matters worse; he suffered a concussion early on in spring training that kept him off the field until April. 

The righty slugger with legendary bat speed is terrorizing opposing pitchers on the minor league level, and with his versatility to play all three outfield spots, he made it tough to keep him in the minors. It is unclear what the corresponding move is at the current moment, but the Yanks just added another Baby Bomber to the lineup.
