Frazier returned to the Pirates on a minor-league deal Tuesday and will head to the team's alternate training site, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Frazier exercised his opt-out clause Friday once it became clear that he wouldn't be winning a spot on the active roster, but he'll remain with the organization after all. He'll provide depth at both corner-infield spots in the event of an injury, but it's not clear how much playing time the rebuilding Pirates will want to give to a 35-year-old who's produced a below-average batting line in two of the last three seasons.
