When Clint Frazier was traded to the New York Yankees last weekend in the deal that sent Andrew Miller to the Cleveland Indians, Frazier immediately became the Yankees’ most prized prospect. Now, in his first few days in the Yankees organization, Frazier seems to have no problem adapting to the privilege that comes with playing in the city Derek Jeter once ruled.
Frazier is a 21-year-old outfielder with great bat speed and a .277 batting average three minor-league season. Upon joining the Yankees, he was assigned to Triple-A, where he’s played in two games and gotten one hit.
Yet he’s already attempting the Jeterian task of dating models. On Thursday morning, Frazier tweeted at Instagram fitness model Jen Selter — she of the nine million followers — with a modest proposal.

Not longer after, he retweeted himself (yes, that’s a thing you can do) and added “make this happen!” In his defense, Selter isn’t unattractive. Still, this is a level of thirst we never saw publicly from Jeter, even as a young 21-year-old.

This, of course, became a tabloid story (welcome to the Big Apple, kid) and Frazier was asked about it before Wednesday’s game. Nothing changed, he’s still looking for that date. He told NJ Advance Media:
“I’ve been trying to reach out to her. She lives in New York,” Frazier said with a smile. “I think she’s 22. I’m 21. I’m single. Let’s hook this up!”
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised if we see Clint Frazier stocking up on gift baskets sometime soon.
