Frazier (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Thursday, Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio 66 WFAN reports.
According to Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record, the injured outfielder went 1-for-5 with a stolen base in a game at extended spring training Monday, so it seems like his head is finally getting close to 100 percent. Frazier will begin his rehab assignment with High-A, though he may need a bit longer time on the trip around the minors due to how long he's been out.
Frazier (concussion) could begin a rehab assignment at High-A Tampa as early as Monday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.
Frazier needs to be cleared by the league before starting his rehab assignment, but it looks like his return is quickly approaching. However, it remains to be seen if Frazier will be used as a reserve option with the big club or be sent to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he's ready to come off the DL.
Frazier (concussion) may be cleared to begin playing in rehab games in the coming days, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic New York reports.
It was recently reported that Frazier had been participating in full workouts, so it was expected that he'd be ready to begin playing in the near future. Although an exact date for Frazier to start a rehab assignment has yet to be set, additional information should become available soon.
Boone remains pleased with Frazier's progress as the oufielder continues to work back from a serious concussion he suffered back in late February. There still doesn't appear to be a concrete timetable for his activation from the disabled list, but his appearance in a minor-league rehab setting will be a giant step forward for the 23-year-old.
Frazier (concussion) took part in a simulated game Thursday in Tampa Bay, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Manager Aaron Boone seemed encouraged by Frazier's progress following Tuesday's outing, stating that "things are finally starting to ramp up" for the outfielder. His next step will be competing in minor-league games, which could realistically begin sometime early next week. Once he's fully operational, Frazier is likely to begin the season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but that may chance depending on the Yankees' injury situation.
