Poor pitching spoils a big offensive night as the Yankees drop rubber-match in Texas

A rough night for Yankees pitching spoiled another offensive outburst, as the Rangers picked up a 12-10 win on Wednesday night in Arlington. Wednesday also marks the first time that the Yankees have lost a series since they lost two out of three against the Red Sox at Fenway in early April. Despite the loss, the offense continues to roll. The Yankees totaled 14 hits and four home runs in the losing effort.

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.
