News & Notes
- Clint Frazier is officially getting called up to the Yankees on Sept. 1. Jack Curry reported that Frazier, Ryan Dull and Chance Adams are likely among the inital call-ups.
- Trade! The Yankees dealt Ryan McBroom to Kansas City for international bonus pool money as well as cash or a PTBNL. The team lost Jhon Diaz, one of their top international commits, to the Rays because they hadn’t opened up bonus money, so this ensures they don’t lose some of their other July 2 players.
- McBroom, 27, deserves an MLB opportunity if someone will give it to him. He’s been raking in Triple-A for a while now and was an All-Star this season.
- RHP Will Carter was called up to Trenton while RHP Kaleb Ort goes to Scranton.
