27 votes after the Indians took the Clint Frazier in a draft seven years ago, the Yankees chose Aaron Judge.
Since then, the midfielder’s career has gone in very different paths. Judge has grown to be one of the most active players in baseball and after joining the Yankees team from the Indians four years ago, Frazier has gained more attention when drawing attention to himself. There are many different ways to play on the field.
It was then Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium, where Judge did not post due to his tight body. The left-hand side field opened up in Aaron Boone’s squad and he made a right-hand header with Frazier past Mike Tauchman swung his left hand in front of Braves Huascar Ynoa̵7;s right hand.
It was one of Boone’s better moves, as Frazier, in the first game of the season, became a Small Judge and led the Yankees (12-6) to a 6-3 victory. Frazier won 3/4 with a homer in the second second, a singles in the third match and a brace in the fifth match.
Promoted from the alternative website on Tuesday to take a spot on Giancarlo Stanton’s list, Frazier had to wait a day to deliver the kind of performance that would get him what he wanted: body opportunities Currently the Yankees, despite having a lot of good players, he can help.
“Tonight is my first real game in 2020. It’s a lot of simulation,” said Frazier of life at the alternative site in Scranton. “It’s great to receive instant results. It won’t be that easy every time I walk to the plate. It feels good. I’m so happy to be playing tonight. ”
Before the Yankees’ second win in a row that gave them a half-match lead over Rays in AL East, Boone said he believes Frazier can be “an influential player” in major leagues. For at least one night, act like the Judge.
Entering the draft 2013, Frazier, a high school student from Georgia, is the darling of Showcase Circuit. Judge is a hulking college slugger in California. Frazier comes fifth after the Indians; The Yankees took Judge with their 32nd pick. One evening, the role of major tournaments was reversed.
“It was just a great night. You throw three of them out there, single, double, that’s a pretty good margin, ” Boone said. “I’m not surprised. I feel he’s been in a really great place all this year, in the spring and summer camp, and the work he’s doing there. Nice to see him come up and make an impact. ”
DJ LeMahieu also had a big impact, winning 4 to 5 and bringing his AL lead strike average to 0.431.
The Braves took an early lead thanks to Johan Camargo’s two-lane run that beat Masahiro Tanaka in the second second. The icy Gary Sanchez and Frazier beat the hosts to equalize, 2-2, at the end of the match. Aaron Hicks and Gleyber Torres each ran in the fourth, as did LeMahieu and Luke Voit in the fifth.
When asked to defend the top four spot in ninth place, Jonathan Holder offered a double against Dansby Swanson and a RBI single for Travis d’Arnaud and raised the Yankees’ war anxiety levels. Boone turned to Zack Britton, who led Freddie Freeman before scoring two final goals for the seventh save with the most chances.
So, after losing 5 out of 7 games last week to Phillies and Rays, the Yankees had a two-win streak on the holiday Thursday, followed by a streak of four games against the dumb Red Sox at the Stadium.
Late Wednesday night, Boone said he didn’t know if the Judge would return on Friday but went to bed with evidence that his assessment that Frazier could be an influential player in tournaments. Big fight is accurate in one night.
