The outfielder, who has made headlines this season with bad defense in the outfield and a defiant attitude, was not among the extra players the Yankees added to their roster for their two-game series against the Red Sox this weekend, even after Giancarlo Stanton was placed on the 10-day injured list with a sprained right knee.

Instead, Mike Tauchman was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take Stanton’s spot on the 25-man roster following Wednesday’s 8-7 win over the Blue Jays in The Bronx.

Both teams can bring a 26th-man for the trip, as well as an extra pitcher and catcher and the Yankees chose Thairo Estrada to go along with right-hander Chance Adams and backstop Kyle Higashioka.

Frazier has struggled since going down to SWB. He entered Wednesday with just one hit to go along with seven strikeouts in his previous 17 at-bats.

The Yankees value Tauchman’s defense and his ability to play all three outfield positions and Estrada provides some versatility in the infield.
