Yankees' Frazier Unlikely To Return This Season

September 06, 2018 - 12:15 pm


It's "unlikely" that outfielder Clint Frazier will play for the Yankees again this season, manager Aaron Boone said Wednesday.

Boone told reporters in Oakland that Frazier recently began experiencing post-concussion symptoms again. A Pittsburgh-area neurologist examined the rehabbing outfielder, who turns 24 on Thursday, and then sent him back to the Yankees' facility in Tampa, Florida, to resume workouts and undergo treatments.

"Just trying to really hone in and getting the best program in place that we can for him to start getting him back on track for good," Boone said. "Hopefully, this is a step in that direction."

Frazier suffered a concussion when he crashed into an outfield wall during spring training. He played in just 15 games in the majors this season, hitting .265 with no home runs and 1 RBI.
