Observations from the Yankees spring training game Saturday:
Clint Frazier went deep for the first time this spring, crushing a long home run to left field in his last at-bat of the game in the fifth inning.
Rain get out of here
Rain delays are back. The Yankees’ first camp canvas sighting came on their trip to LECOM Park in Bradenton, Florida, to play the Pirates, with rain delaying the first pitch by 73 minutes.
He caught my attention
Dustin Fowler, the former Yankees prospect who suffered a brutal knee injury in his MLB debut, was leading the way for the Pirates. The Yankees traded him to the Athletics on the Sonny Gray deal in 2017, but Oakland sent him to Pittsburgh less than two weeks ago for a fresh start. He was 1 of 3 in his debut with the Pirates.
The Yankees will host the Phillies at George M. Steinbrenner Field at 1:05 pm, with left-hander Jordan Montgomery set to make his second start of the spring.
