Gotta love Clint Frazier.  And now... he's back.  He said so.

David Hale was designated for assignment.

Now what? Well... there's a plan and I like what I'm reading.  Our guy Brendan Kuty at has the story:

Highly regarded Triple-A outfielder Clint Frazier, a powerful righty hitter, will stay with the team at least through the weekend series in Kansas City, Boone said. The Yankees brought up Frazier as an extra bat playing in the National League, where there's no designated hitter.

'We have a couple lefties in Kansas City,' Boone said. 'I would certainly imagine we've got (Danny) Duffy that second day in there. That will almost certainly be in there then and it'll be something we monitor day by day, but we won't have him in here just regularly sitting.'"

We'd also have to see what happens with a guy like Aaron Hicks.  Say Frazier plays through this weekend, has some huge, productive games, and Hicks does not.  What happens then?

Or... does Frazier just get sent back down after he's showed off to a few potential teams for a secret upcoming trade? It's happened before.

Or... say they bat Red Thunder a little, give him a look at some pro pitchers and then send him down like professional ball teams do from time to time.

There are a million scenarios here.  I don't know what it will be, and neither do you.  But let's keep an eye out.  We'll soon see.

Any way you slice it.  I'm psyched to have Frazier back up.
