Frazier (ribs) resumed swinging Friday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports. Frazier hit the disabled list Monday with a left rib cage strain and was shut down for a few days. Given that he's already back to swinging, he could be ready to go immediately following the All-Star break, though an exact timeline hasn't been established.
Frazier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Marlins. The third baseman struggled to make much contact in June, hitting only .198 (18-for-91) with a 4:21 BB:K in 23 games, but Frazier did at least hit four homers. With nine home runs and 30 RBI in 55 games on the year, he's not too far off last season's power pace from a fantasy perspective, but his .165 ISO would be the lowest of his career if he doesn't turn things around in the second half.
Frazier is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates. Frazier has not had a day off since returning from the disabled list June 5, so manager Mickey Callaway decided to give him a break Monday. Luis Guillorme will man the hot corner in Frazier's place.
Frazier went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Rockies. Frazier took Kyle Freeland deep in the first inning and singled in the eighth, later scoring on a sac fly. The 32-year-old is slashing just .225/.319/.405 with 47 strikeouts in 173 at-bats.
Frazier went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a stolen base in the Mets' 2-0 win over the Yankees on Sunday. This marked the second straight game with a long ball for Frazier, who has hit safely in four of his five games since coming off the disabled list with a hamstring injury. The veteran third baseman is now slashing .239/.344/.433 through 134 at-bats, and he's also chipped in four steals in four attempts, which equals the number of swipes he had over his 147 games as a member of the White Sox and the Yankees last season.
