I am a little surprised by the Wade move.   Don't mind losing either of Odor or Frazier at all.


Very, very glad they protected Ridings.   Kid looked like a beast.

Im guessing Cash tried to move Frazier and Wade but there were no takers. Im also a little surprised about Wade  considering his versayility. Pretty sure soneone will claim him.

This still leaves 3 top 30 prospects unprotected:


#18 Josh Breaux C


#19 Brandon Lockridge OF


#27 Matt Sauer P


Breaux and Lockridge have both been as far as AA.   Sauer to A+.


Breaux and Sauer were both 2nd round picks, Lockridge was a 5th round choice.


Maybe they are figuring these guys are too far away from the majors to be Rule 5 bait.

They kept Andujar.  Looks like Wade was out of options and Andujar still has one left, maybe that's why.

Yankees Designate Clint Frazier, Rougned Odor And Tyler Wade For Assignment




The Yankees announced they’ve designated Clint FrazierRougned Odor and Tyler Wade for assignment. The moves create roster space for the selections of prospects Oswaldo CabreraRon MarinaccioEverson PereiraStephen Ridings and JP Sears to the 40-man roster. That keeps all five from being selected in the Rule 5 draft.


Frazier and Wade are arbitration-eligible, but the Yankees evidently determined they weren’t going to bring either player back. It’s easy to envision both attracting interest over the coming days, and New York will ten days to explore offers.


Frazier was a middle-of-the-order presence as recently as last year, when he mashed at a .267/.394/.511 clip. That came in a small sample of 160 plate appearances during a truncated season, but it was the kind of offensive upside talent evaluators have lauded for the former #5 overall pick. While Frazier’s a limited defensive player with swing-and-miss concerns, he also flashed a tantalizing blend of raw power and plate discipline.


The 2021 season was a disaster, though. Not only did the 27-year-old’s line fall to a miserly .186/.317/.317, he didn’t play past the end of June due to recurring vertigo-like symptoms. It’s certainly not how either he or the team would’ve envisioned his time in pinstripes coming to an end.


MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz projects Frazier for a modest $2.4MM salary if he were to proceed through the arbitration process. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see another team roll the dice on his upside for that affordable sum, either via trade or waiver claim. If Frazier were to clear waivers, he’d have the right to elect minor league free agency.


That’s also the case for Wade, who’s projected for an affordable $700K arb salary. The 26-year-old doesn’t bring much power potential, but he draws a fair amount of walks, runs well and can handle multiple positions. Wade is coming off a .268/.354/.323 showing in 145 plate appearances, and it’d register as a surprise if he didn’t land elsewhere in the coming days.


The Yankees swung a deal to acquire Odor from the Rangers just before the start of the 2021 season. While the left-handed hitter had some timely hits, his overall production was lackluster. Odor managed just a .202/.286/.379 mark over 361 plate appearances. The 27-year-old will be guaranteed $12MM next season, the final year of his contract. Texas remains on the hook for essentially all of that sum, so any team that acquires Odor would only owe him the league minimum salary.


Turning to the prospects involved, Ridings may be the best known. The big right-hander already made his MLB debut this past season as a COVID replacement. While he only worked five innings of relief, he looked like a potential late-game weapon. Ridings averaged 97 MPH on his fastball and generated whiffs on a massive 18.9% of his offerings. The 26-year-old also posted dominant numbers in the high minors.


Cabrera is the highest-regarded of the group, according to Baseball America. BA’s #8 organizational farmhand, Cabrera is coming off a solid .256/.311/.492 showing with 24 homers over 478 plate appearances at Double-A Somerset. He’s regarded as a high-end defensive infielder with strong bat-to-ball skills and burgeoning power.


Pereira, a lefty-hitting center fielder, was limited to 221 low minors plate appearances by injuries. The 20-year-old probably isn’t a near-term big league option, but the Yankees didn’t want to chance another team taking a shot on his upside. A highly-regarded amateur coming out of Venezuela in 2017, he raked at a .303/.398/.686 clip when healthy enough to take the field this year. Neither Sears nor Marinaccio has ever made an organizational ranking at FanGraphs or BA, but both posted strong numbers in the high minors and could be big league options in 2022.

Wade was earning a paltry $700k, was very versatile. With this team's constant injuries, that is vital. Plus he added speed, that this team has little of.


Yet they keep the no position, iron glove, lost bat Andujar, and Garcia, who really has tanked. And throw in Gittens as well, why are they holding on to him. This has become typical of Yankees inexplicable moves in recent years. Wade will likely get claimed, and the Yankees will come to regret losing him. Every team needs decent bench players, and he has been that.

Dropping Wade is shocking, he's gonna be scooped up quickly.

Perira is a right handed hittter... Author needs to get their facts straight.

    Some of Cashman's decisions are inexplicable. The decision to release Wade while protecting Gittens is among them. Why keep Gittens when his path is blocked by 1) Luke Voit, 2) the preference for a left handed first baseman and 3) Gittens limited baseball talent ? The move is good for Wade who will end up on a rsoter that will compete in the postseason.
