Frazier went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer, a walk and two runs Saturday against the Orioles. Frazier launched his 26th bomb of the campaign in the seventh inning of an easy victory for the Yankees. He's homered five times this month, and fantasy owners in need of power down the stretch might want to turn to him as he remains hot.
Frazier (back) is in Saturday's lineup against the Orioles. Frazier was able to get some rest Friday while nursing a sore back, but he will return to the starting nine and bat seventh Saturday. Over the last 10 games, he's hitting .267/.463/.733 with four home runs and 11 RBI.
Frazier is being held out Friday with back soreness, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. The sore back will prevent Frazier from starting Friday, but he does not seem to be dealing with anything serious, as he will still be available off the bench and is expected to rejoin the starting lineup Saturday.
Frazier is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Frazier reached base seven times over the last two games and knocked in four runs in the process, but that did not prevent manager Joe Girardi from giving him a day off to accommodate the returning Greg Bird.
Frazier went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, a double and two walks during Thursday's win over Baltimore. This was Frazier's fourth homer and 11th RBI through his past 10 games, and the veteran slugger just might be rounding into top form when it matters most for fantasy owners. His game-to-game inconsistency is a concern, but Frazier has the potential to put together a productive stretch over the final weeks of the season.
