We’ll find out in the coming months if the Yankees are done with outfielder Clint Frazier, or if he gets another shot in 2020 to be a complete player, which would require significant defensive improvement to compliment offensive contributions that can be significant.
And if the Yankees don’t make a move, they may first have to get a believable promise from Frazier that he’s done pouting on social media, done feuding with the media and willing to make a much bigger effort to fit in whether he’s in the big leagues or back in Triple-A waiting for another opportunity.
Regardless of what the Yankees ultimately decide, for sure Frazier is in the place this winter that he was throughout last offseason:
On the trading block.
The Yankees still aren’t ready to give Frazier away because they don’t have a ton of outfield depth and he probably still could bring something of high value in return because of his offensive potential. He proved he could hit big-league pitching during his time with the Yanks this year, batting .267 with 12 homers, 38 RBI and an .806 ERA in 69 games.
There are believed to be some clubs that don’t want Frazier because of his past issues and/or defensive struggles, but others surely would like adding a young impact bat to their lineup.
Here are four trades that we’ve come up with that could work:
1. SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
Trade: Frazier to the Giants for reliever Tony Watson and outfielder prospect Alexander Canario.
Why Yankees would do it: In addition to getting rid of a problem child, they’d add a left-handed bullpen piece with a pretty good track record plus a 19-year-old Dominican outfield prospect who hit 16 homers in 59 games this season playing rookie and low-A ball.
Why Giants would do it: They’re not looking to go into a full rebuild and badly need an outfield bat who can produce like Frazier. Also, they’d only be losing their third-best outfielder prospect, and getting a major-league ready one back with a low salary should allow them to spend bigger dollars to add one or two quality starting pitchers.

2. CINCINNATI REDS
Trade: Frazier and left-handed reliever Stephen Tarpley to Reds for left-handed reliever Amir Garrett and catcher Curt Casali.
Why Yankees would do it: The Yanks could fill two needs getting a quality lefty middle reliever in Garrett, who pitched to a 3.21 ERA with 78 Ks in 56 innings last season, plus a solid No. 2 catcher in Casali. Both players would come cheap, too, and that could greatly help the Yankees’ quest to sign a top free agent starter like Gerrit Cole or Stephen Strasburg.
Why Reds would do it: They’re not completely sold on their three young starting outfielders and hope to bring in another to compete for playing time. Also, Tarpley would give them a potentially decent situational lefty reliever to replace Garrett.

3. BALTIMORE ORIOLES
Trade: Frazier to Orioles for reliever Mychal Givens.
Why Yankees would do it: They love Givens’ arm and tried unsuccessfully to deal for him last summer at the trade deadline. His 4.57 ERA last year was a career worst, but he did it fanning 86 over 63 innings and his career ERA is 3.40 over 284 relief outings since 2015.
Why Orioles would do it: The terrible and cheap Orioles need a productive bat a lot more than they need a closer, and Frazier’s six-figure salary will be a lot more attractive to them than the projected $3.2 million that the arbitration-eligible Givens will make in 2020.

4. DETROIT TIGERS
Trade: Frazier, pitching prospect Albert Abreu and reliever Ben Heller to Tigers for left-handed starter Matthew Boyd and reliever Joe Jimenez
Why Yankees would do it: The Yankees would get a young starter that they like plus a useful veteran reliever without giving up a major piece from their probable 2020 big-league roster.
Why Tigers would do it: The Tigers are at least a couple seasons away from contending and they’d get a position player, plus an elite rotation prospect in Abreu and a hard-throwing young reliever in Heller who could help them in the present and future.
