he's out of minor league options after this season. For a 60 game season, who is willing to trade for a mediocre outfielder? yankee fans overvalue this guy way too much. the fact of the matter is, frazier isn't all that good.
FAct of the matter? Are you the fact master? He's a proven major league bat. Teams believe it or not can use that. Wait...let me guess...;he sucks cause you hate the Yankees. Astro fan are you? Or a Met fan?
nope i'm a yankees fan. i just watch enough games to see that our outfield is stacked there's no place for him on the team. if there was a market for him, he'd be gone already.
And what does that have to do with his value to another team? We are talking about trade value right? Just because he has no room in NY (which he doesn't) has what to do with his trade value? This is the same crazy Phil Jackson logic about trading guys and looking for a return based only on what he valued the player at. There are plenty of teams out there that could use Frazier's bat which is proven (unlike a lot of top hitting prospects). And with the NL going full blown DH in 2021, Frazier's value across both leagues will increase even with concerns about his fielding. He's 24 years old and has a ton of control left with a significant big league bat. That is value for most every team that is needing a bat (and there are a lot of teams that need bats right now and for the forseeable future based on their farm system and their inability to spend big on free agents).
