The New York Yankees placed outfielder Clint Frazier on the 10-day injured list Friday because of vertigo symptoms, according to manager Aaron Boone.

Frazier left New York’s game on Wednesday complaining of dizziness, and Boone said Frazier is being given tests to identify the problem.

“It’s been pretty extensive so when we have all that information, full clarity, we’ll have a better answer for you,” Boone said before Friday’s Mets-Yankees game in the Bronx. “Doctors, hospitals, things like that. Just trying to, if we can uncover something or get to the bottom of anything. It’s a litany of tests he’s going through.”

Frazier, 26, has hit only .186 through 66 games this season after back-to-back campaigns during which he produced a .267 mark.

A first-round pick (No. 5 overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2013, Frazier was traded to New York at the deadline in 2016 along with left-hander Justus Sheffield and right-handers Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen for lefty reliever Andrew Miller.

Frazier has 29 home runs, 97 RBIs and a .239 batting average over parts of five big-league seasons (228 games), all with the Yankees.
