DAVIDOFF: Yankees facing a new Clint Frazier trade value reality

WFAN callers hardest hit.

In 69 major league games, Frazier, the top return piece in the trade that sent lefty reliever Andrew Miller from The Bronx to Cleveland, slashed .267/.317./489, slamming 12 home runs in 225 at-bats. He indeed played a critical role prior to the All-Star break, with several regular players on the injured list, yet he also did regress defensively and greatly upset both teammates and bosses by not making himself available to the media after a June 2 loss to the Red Sox in which he played terribly on defense and then refusing to apologize two days later for his lack of accountability. Following his demotion to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in June, he repeatedly expressed his unhappiness on social media with the Yankees’ decision.

Frazier’s personality issues, while detrimental, didn’t deter those surveyed as much as his problems with the glove. Regarding the former issue, “He might just need to get out of New York,” a second high-ranking official from a second non-pinstriped team said. However, the same official added, “There are questions about his defense. Can he be an everyday outfielder?

“He couldn’t be the centerpiece of a big deal,” the executive concluded. “But he could be a significant piece in a lesser deal.”

LEADING OFF: Carrasco, Frazier, Zobrist up as rosters expand

SPECIAL RETURN

Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco, who hasn’t pitched in the majors since late May when he was diagnosed with leukemia, will be reinstated from the 60-day injured list for a game at Tampa Bay. Carrasco made four rehab appearances with Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus, permitting one run while striking out eight in five innings. He’ll start up in Cleveland’s bullpen as he continues to build endurance in his arm.

“Great feeling, back to the baseball field,” Carrasco said on Instagram.

This will be an interesting day to watch in one regard- assuming there are no changes, this will be the last year of 40-man call-ups, and it will be interesting to see how the teams respond to this being the case.
