Per Jesse Rogers of ESPN, the Cubs are closing in on signing Clint Frazier to a one-year deal. The former first-round draft pick was released by the Yankees this offseason.

It looks like the Cubs didn’t need to make a blockbuster trade with the Yankees to get Frazier after all. That was just noise from Yankees fans all over Twitter throughout the past few years.

The Cubs’ front office taking a flyer on Frazier is their latest attempt to find lightning in the bottle. The 27-year-old outfielder owns a .239/.327/.434 slash line in five MLB seasons.

Why It Matters

Frazier will likely be part of the Cubs’ Spring Training competition for a roster spot. He was the No. 5 overall pick by the Indians in 2013 but has never been able to live up to expectations of that magnitude. He finished 2021 with a -1.4 bWAR after only hitting .186 for the season.

Despite his awful 2021 campaign, he did play well in 2020, finishing with a .905 OPS in 160 at-bats.

The Cubs hope to bring the 2020 version of Clint Frazier to the North Side.
