Not everyone on the New York Yankees is excited about the arrival of recently acquired slugger Edwin Encarnacion.
To make room for the designated hitter's arrival, the club optioned outfielder Clint Frazier to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, manager Aaron Boone announced Sunday, according to Lindsey Adler of The Athletic.
Frazier is the victim of a 25-man roster crunch with Encarnacion now in the fold and Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge on the verge of returning.
"Tough pill to swallow," Frazier said following the demotion.
The 24-year-old disclosed he was "pretty surprised" to be sent down.
