Clint Frazier will testify in White Sox uniform on Sunday. Frazier hit .375/.478/.839 with seven homers and a 1.317 OPS in 16 games for Triple-A Charlotte.

Frazier signed a minor league contract with the team in late April before leaving after a hot start with the Charlotte Cavaliers. He last appeared in a major league game for the Cubs in 2022 and was released in April from a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers.

Frazier is a former top pick who was drafted by the then-Cleveland Indians in the 2013 MLB Draft Selected with the 5th overall pick. He was acquired by the Yankees at the 2016 trade deadline in the Andrew Miller trade and made his club debut in 2017.

He has struggled to become a major league mainstay, playing just 247 games in six seasons in the league. He’s a career . 238 hitter with 29 homers and 98 RBIs.

Outfield because he can complement lefties Andrew Benintendi and Gavin Sheets in the outfield. The team also has outfielder Billy Hamilton and designated hitter Eloy Jimenez on the injured list.

Chicago is currently fourth in the middling AL Central with a record of 18-29.
