Yankees outfield prospect Clint Frazier is being called up to the big league squad before Tuesday's matchup against the Atlanta Braves, according to a report from the New York Post's Joel Sherman.

Frazier is a former first-round pick and a highly touted prospect who has yet to develop as a regular contributor at the big league level. In 69 games with the Yankees, last season, he batted .267 with 12 home runs. The Yankees still have Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks, Aaron Judge, and Mike Tauchman in the outfield, so Frazier may be stuck on the short side of a platoon unless he can contribute quickly.
