Frazier's injury occurred on during Monday night's game while running back to second base on an attempted pickoff. He rolled his ankle on the bag during the process. The youngster played the rest of the game on the apparent injured ankle and wanted to make an appearance in Tuesday night's game, but did not.

“They feel it is a 10 to 14-day thing so we don’t feel like it is a long thing,’’ Boone said. “(Frazier) feels like he could play or is close to playing but the MRI exam revealed enough in there of a partial tear and stuff and it is going to cost him.’’
The Yankees will be sure to miss Frazier, who has been lighting it up this season since receiving a call-up in wake of the team's injury woes. In 18 games, Frazier has batted an impressive .324, with six home runs and 17 RBI.
