Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier is continuing to deal with symptoms related to a concussion after his head hit an outfield wall during Sunday’s spring training game. Frazier, 23, first reported concussion symptoms to the team Monday morning, and has since said in a statement “I can’t even sit in my living room without feeling like s—,” Frazier said before Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Tigers. “My head hurts, and it’s just the headaches. I can’t shake the headache all day. I have a goal to attain, and it’s not fun watching it kind of feel like it dwindles away when you’re sitting on the shelf.” In the game against the Philadelphia Phillies in Clearwater, Florida, Frazier was drifting back for a fly ball and when the left fielder reached the warning track, he leaped just short of the wall and caught the ball as his head made contact with the bottom of the fence. As part of the concussion evaluation process, Frazier has spent the past three days working with trainers. He said Wednesday that the warm-ups have been going well, it’s when he starts trying to hit that the symptoms return.
