Frazier will start at second base and bat second Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Not only is he batting .354 since late July, but Frazier is also the only Pirate batter with a modicum of success against Tuesday's starter, Jack Flaherty. Frazier is 3-for-5 with a double and a walk versus Flaherty. Starting second baseman Josh Harrison (hamstring) has passed through waivers and could be traded before the end of August, so more playing time could open up for Frazier in September.
