Could see early opportunities Frazier is in the mix for an outfield/DH role early in the season as the Yankees look to work in players returning from injury, Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media reports.
Impact Prior to the suspension of play in March, Frazier looked to be in line for a near-everyday role to begin the season due to injuries to Aaron Hicks (elbow), Aaron Judge (rib) and Giancarlo Stanton (calf). The long layoff has given all three players time to get healthy, relegating Frazier to a bench role. However, the team is unlikely to overwork players returning from injury to start the campaign, so Frazier could find himself playing somewhat often during the early stages of the season. He is also among the leading candidates to assume a starting role should an outfield injury occur.
