NEW YORK — Clint Frazier was put on the 10-day injured list by the New York Yankees with vertigo, three years after a concussion that hampered him for an entire season.

The 26-year-old left Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels because of dizziness.

New York filled the roster spot Friday with outfielder Tim Locastro, obtained Thursday from Arizona for right-hander Keegan Curtis.  

The 28-year-old Locastro hit .178 with one homer and five RBIs in 118 at-bats.

Frazier slumped to a .186 average, five homers and 15 RBIs in 183 at-bats and lost playing time to Brett Gardner and Miguel Andújar.
