MOOSIC, Pa. — The New York Yankees assigned Loganville graduate Clint Frazier to their Triple-A club Monday morning, a day after acquiring the outfielder in a trade.

Frazier came to the Yankees organization in a deal five-player deal with the Indians on Sunday. The Yankees dealt pitcher Andrew Miller to Cleveland in exchange for pitchers Ben Heller, J.P. Feyereisen and Justus Sheffield, plus Frazier.

Frazier’s first assignment with the Yankees is the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.

He’d been at Triple-A since July 25, when the Indians moved him up to Columbus. In five games at the highest level of the minors, Frazier is hitting .238 (5-for-21).

He was a .276 hitter at Double-A Akron.

Frazier joins a team in the middle of a pennant race. The RailRiders (67-41) are in first place in the International League North Division by a game over the Phillies’ Triple-A affiliate, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre begins a four-game series at Lehigh Valley at 7:05 p.m. Monday.

The Gwinnett Braves are in the International League South, but Scranton/Wilkes-Barre doesn’t come to Lawrenceville again this regular season.
