Yankees: 3 Potential Clint Frazier Trades That Make Sense
By Jerry Trotta
1. Colorado Rockies
The Colorado Rockies are in a pretty weird spot right now.
After a 71-91 finish last season and with no real ambitions for the truncated 2020 season, they could be poised to expedite their eventual rebuilding efforts by offloading studs Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon. As far as we know, the Yankees aren’t in the market for either of those two players — at least, not right now.
Trading for Frazier to fill future offensive gaps will only bolster those efforts, and Colorado has just the sort of young talent that New York is undoubtedly pursuing. The Rockies have a trio of third baseman in their top 10, so they shouldn’t mind jettisoning one in return for a slugging outfielder. Perhaps No. 7 ranked Colton Welker, as well as 19-year-old southpaw Helcris Olivarez (No. 17 overall) would be enough to entice the Yanks.
