New York Yankees designate Clint Frazier, Rougned Odor, Tyler Wade for assignment

Clint Frazier’s tenure with the Yankees might have ended after five unfulfilling seasons when New York designated him for assignment on Friday to open a roster spot for a prospect ahead of the winter meeting draft.

Frazier can be claimed by another major league team off waivers. If he is not, he could be assigned outright to the minors, but he would have the right to reject the assignment and become a free agent because he has at least three years of major league service.

Infielders Rougned Odor and Tyler Wade also were designated for assignment.

Frazier had some moments when he looked like a keeper, but he never overcame Jose’s reverse-curse (‘better than Judge’). Might bring back something in trade if he’s over the vertigo-like condition that plagued him in 2021. Not sure that’s the case, or whether his medicals would be clear about the future risk, so expectations should probably be low.

Via con dios Syndrome ... hope you get fully healthy and have a few years of a solid career.

Yeah, I'm starting to think I might not be right about that one. Let's call it a draw and move on.

This is going to significantly reduce the "Frazier + Andujar for someone's star player" trade proposals I've seen from Yankees fans for the past couple of years.

Never give up! I thought Moyer was a good young pitcher in 1986 and kept saying that in 87, 88, 89 .... Ten years later, I was proven right! :-)

Lots of Hot Prospects never make it to star status, but still hang on for a semi-respectable career. I just hope Frazier and Andujar can finally stay healthy for more than a few months in succession.

I like Wade's energy, but his negative hitting can't be overcome by a few late inning baserunning heroics. Just another AAA gem who never could catch up to Major League pitching.

Wade traded to the Angels for a PTBNL

Reduce, but not eliminate

We can't know exactly how much, but I wonder what his Yankee career would have looked like without the concussions.
   10. Jose Has Absurd Goosebump Arms Posted: November 23, 2021 at 10:31 AM (#6054227)
Better than Aaron Judge. I've already said this! (never give up! never surrender!)

We can't know exactly how much, but I wonder what his Yankee career would have looked like without the concussions.

At best, he might be a right handed hitting version of Joey Gallo with the Rangers. At worst, a right handed version of Joey Gallo with the Yankees.

You weren't exactly right, though. He was never a good young pitcher. He was a good old pitcher by that time.

Yankees fans can only hope that Chaim Bloom still refuses to take Jose’s calls. Otherwise, we might be haunted by his prophecy being resurrected in Boston.
