Frazier, who has a modest four-game hitting streak, is 4-for-8 with three doubles against Tuesday's starter, German Marquez.

He held a career .280 batting average prior to 2019 but has struggled to a slash line of .255/.314/.354 this year. Frazier missed several games with a back issue early on and has hit just .242 since returning April 21. The injury could have affected his ability to run -- he has two stolen bases overall and has attempted just one since April 13. His 0.4 defensive WAR at second base marks the first time he's registered a positive fielding rating, but the team was likely expecting more after installing him as its everyday second baseman.
