Clint Frazier activated from 10-day disabled list

The New York Yankees have reinstated outfielder Clint Frazier from the 10-day disabled list after he returned from a rehab stint with the Double-A Trenton Thunder, the team announced Monday.

Frazier, 23, went 2-for-17 with 10 strikeouts in his rehab stint with the Thunder as they competed in the Eastern League Divisional Series, where they ultimately defeated the Binghamton Rumble Ponies to advance to the championship series.

Prior to landing on the disabled list with his left oblique strain, Frazier showed impressive pop in his first 28 games with the big league club, slashing .243/.274/.477 with 15 extra-base hits, four homers and 17 RBI across 117 plate appearances.

Prior to joining the Bombers, Frazier played 74 games in Triple-A with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, where he hit .256 and slugged .473, along with 19 doubles, 12 homers and 42 RBI. He also swiped nine bases during that time, and has not been afraid to utilize his speed at the major league level.

The Loganville, Ga. native earned his MLB call-up ahead of schedule as the Yankees outfield sustained a multitude of injuries over the course of the 2017 season, but Frazier's return will help boost a red-hot Yankees team that's won three consecutive series, and seven of their last 10 games.

New York opens up a three-game "road" series against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday, which will be held in Citi Field - home of the Mets - due to the effects of Hurricane Irma in the Tampa Bay area.
