Frazier went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run during Thursday's win over Atlanta. Frazier is 20-for-48 through 13 games since being activated from the disabled list and has two home runs, 13 RBI, two stolen bases and 11 runs during that stretch. He doesn't profile as a power threat after posting an underwhelming .411 slugging percentage with just two long flies over 160 plate appearances last year. However, Frazier is locked into the leadoff spot right now, and he's currently sporting a .446 on-base percentage. There is a lot of room for statistical decline before he's no longer a serviceable fantasy asset.
Frazier had a perfect day at the plate Wednesday, going 2-for-2 with a three-run homer, four walks, a steal and three runs in a 10-inning win against the Braves. His second-inning homer got the Pirates' offense going early, and Frazier never stopped doing his thing out of the leadoff spot. The young outfielder is now sporting a spectacular .370 batting average with a couple homers, a couple steals, 15 RBI and 15 runs through 27 games spent primarily in the leadoff spot. His sky-high BABIP suggests that regression is in the offing, but also that a .300 average may be sustainable; however, Frazier's modest pop and inefficient base stealing put a hard ceiling on his fantasy upside.
Frazier went 3-for-5 with two RBI and stole his first base of the season Saturday. He's hitting .438 in 32 at-bats since returning from a hamstring injury eight games ago. Frazier continues to bat leadoff and play left field, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the team give him another crack at second base. Regardless of where he plays, Frazier is one of Pittsburgh's few reliable offensive producers.
Frazier is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Phillies. Frazier has been scorching in six games since returning from the DL, going 11-for-26 with five RBI, but gets a routine day of rest Friday. The recently recalled Danny Ortiz takes over in right field for the series opener.
Frazier went 3-for-5 with a double, four RBI and two runs during Thursday's win over Washington. Frazier has set the table from the leadoff spot in each of the past five games, and with a .347 batting average and .395 on-base percentage, his fantasy value is on the rise. His ceiling is low because of his lack of power, but Frazier shouldn't be overlooked in deep seasonal leagues or daily contests while hitting well.
