Frazier left the Yankees' minor league complex in Tampa, Florida, on Sunday, took a flight to Atlanta and then another to Scranton, Pennsylvania, for the start of the Triple-A season.

While the Yankees wait to figure out exactly how Andujar's recovery will progress, they could soon get back two of the other injured stars also on their stacked IL. Stanton was placed on the 10-day injured list earlier Monday with a left biceps strain and will likely be out for a few weeks. Luckily, general manager Brian Cashman made a decision to add depth instead of paying big money for Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. Before being a Yankee, Stanton played for the Miami Marlins and left quite a mark on the program.

The team will try treating Andujar's injury with physical therapy and a rehab program. He added that he didn't hear anything about it from Yankees officials or manager Aaron Boone.

The Yankees have a quality replacement third baseman in DJ LeMahieu, which means Wade will get playing time whenever Troy Tulowitzki rests.

Losing Andujar for any length of time would be a major blow for the Yankees, who also have shortstop Didi Gregorius, ace Luis Severino and designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton now on the shelf.

Cashman and owner Hal Steinbrenner have argued that the Yankees decided instead to spend the bulk of their money this offseason on pitching, the team's biggest need. NY also re-signed C.C. Sabathia to a one-year deal.

Tottenham confident of Man City upset insists Son
Spurs are now on a five-game winless run in the Premier League with their last victory coming against Leicester City in February. But their South Korean winger Son believes they have the quality and mentality to cause an upset.

The Yankees reportedly had discussions about trading Andujar for a starting pitcher. He recorded three hits and an RBI in those plate appearances. The same goes for Harper, whose hype surpassed his actual production on the field. With Andujar's injury, they can only wait and hope for the best.

But if injuries haunt the Yankees all year, passing on Harper and Machado could loom large as NY tries to end a decade-long title drought.
