Felt terrible for Clint Frazier. I’m a Phillies fan and he’s producing better than our 330 million dollar superstar Bryce Harper this year. What a slap in the face that had to be for him to get the news he’s getting sent down. The move didn’t make a ton of sense.
I saw on article saying this move was just to keep the rays from getting Encarncion
I know this idea of blocking a player from going to a division rival has been around for a long time, but if the rays are trying to do the same and block the yankees, then the price of trading for Encarnacion should go up and balance out since you are risking more of your team's future by giving away a better minor league prospect.
