Finally, Clint Frazier is proud of the strides he feels he's made defensively working with RailRiders assistant Julio Borbón. Frazier's still buzzing about diving full-stretch for a ball last weekend against Syracuse. It was his first diving catch since a dive last August exacerbated his concussion symptoms, effectively ending his 2018 season. With Borbón, Frazier's focus has been on standing up a little taller in his pre-pitch setup. It's to mimic his fairly upright batter's stance. He believes that has helped him maintain his eye level when he takes off for fly balls, helping him track them dramatically better. Previously, he'd crouch lower pre-pitch, and when he'd move immediately out of the crouch, that would cause his eyes to move, and he'd have more difficulty tracking balls hit at high velocities. "It's not the same guy out there (now)," Frazier said. "I want to practice it in New York, but I feel good. It hasn't been a waste of my time down here. It hasn't been a bad experience, one that I think can really help me help the Yankees when I get the chance."
