Bullpen Day Thrives, Yanks top Rays 4-1

Entering the last week of the regular season the Yankees opened a four-game set Monday night in the always dreaded trip to face the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees came into tonight sitting one and a half games (two in the loss column) above the Oakland A’s for home field advantage in the AL Wild Card game. Aaron Boone decided to go with a “bullpen day” tonight instead of giving the ball to a typical starter.

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.
