One Made Sense, Even Two, But Now Three… ??? Is there more to this?

Clint Frazier was in the big leagues. He was hitting very well…Embed from Getty Images

He was sent to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the Yankees Triple-A Team.

Since that time, the Yankees have called-up three position players.

First came Mike Tauchman. That move made sense, the Yankees like Tauchman, he has proven that he can produce excellent big league at bats and he seems to be a plus defender at all three outfield positions.Embed from Getty Images

Clint stayed in the minors.

Next, the Yankees needed another outfielder. After playing in just one rehab game, the brought back Cameron Maybin. Again, it made some sense. Maybin had been doing great in the big leagues until he got hurt. He also has great speed and is an asset defensively.Embed from Getty Images

Clint stayed in the minors.

Today, the Yankees called up yet another player. This guy is an infielder/outfielder – Tyler Wade, who has never really produced in the big leagues. With D.J. LeMahieu banged up (and possibly going on the I.L.) this move can also be said to make sense, but…Embed from Getty Images

You have to wonder what is going on with Clint Frazier.

Is this just a case of three players better fitting the current Yankee model or are the Yankees sending Frazier a message? Or are the Yankees preparing to trade him?

Time will tell. What do you think?Embed from Getty Images
