Future Watch: Clint Frazier Rookie Baseball Cards, Yankees

Future Watch: Clint Frazier Rookie Baseball Cards, Yankees – Clint Frazier was selected with the fifth overall pick by the Cleveland Indians in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft. The Yankees acquired the top prospect last July when they traded star reliever, Andrew Miller to the Indians for Frazier and three players. At that point, the Gotham spotlight was shining directly on the newly acquired young phenom.

Between last year and this year, he’s had two stints in Scranton. This year has been much more favorable as he finished with 12 homers, 42 RBI, 19 doubles and a .256 average.

Frazier did get a call up with the Yankees. He has four homers and 17 RBI with nine doubles and a .236 average. The Yankees had to send their top prospect back to the minors to rehab an oblique strain.

As luck would have it, he has caught on with the AA Trenton Thunder to help them in the playoffs. In the first round, they dispatched the Mets farm team from Binghamton. He went 1-for-8 with five strikeouts. But he got healthy and that’s why he was there.

Now that he has healed, he’s back playing for the Yankees. He’s struggling a bit but he has some time until he gets some MLB playoff time under his belt.

Clint Frazier’s autographed cards date back to 2013 Bowman products. He also has a more easily obtainable autographed card from that year in Panini Prizm Perennial Draft Picks   However, the Yankees prospect also has a Chrome Prospect autographed cards in 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Rated Rookie fans can find an autographed version in 2017 Donruss Optic Baseball.

According to his MLB.com draft profile:

Frazier’s bat speed and raw power are among the best in the Minor Leagues and suggest the ceiling of an All-Star. Though he struggled to harness his aggressive approach and recognize spin early in his career, Frazier has developed into a more complete hitter as he’s climbed the Minor-League ladder, with strikeout and walk rates that continue to trend in a positive direction.

He homered in his MLB debut:

This player has star potential. Now sit back and watch him.
