Frazier went 3-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI in the Yankees' 5-3 win over the Red Sox on Thursday. Frazier hit his fourth homer of the season Wednesday, and he followed that up with a three-hit effort in this contest. The performance boosts his slash line up to an impressive .333/.347/.622 over 45 at-bats, and he'll continue to see plenty of at-bats for the moment in an injury-riddled Yankees outfield.
Frazier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday in the Yankees' 8-0 win over the Red Sox. One of three Yankees to leave the yard on the evening, Frazier's fourth-inning blast ended a six-game stretch where he failed to record an extra-base hit. In spite of that dry spell, Frazier still maintains a credible .896 OPS through 45 plate appearances. He'll continue to handle an everyday role while Giancarlo Stanton (biceps) and Aaron Hicks (back) remain on the 10-day injured list.
Frazier is in the lineup for a second straight game on Monday, hitting eighth and playing left field for the Yankees' tilt with the Astros. Coming off a monster four-hit, two-homer effort against Baltimore on Sunday, manager Aaron Boone will stick with the hot hand and keep Frazier's bat in the lineup against Houston. Frazier was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre out of necessity due to a plethora of injuries for the Yankees, but he's responded by slashing .412/.421/.941 and launching three homers over 17 at-bats. If he keeps raking like that, it will be hard for Boone to deny him regular at-bats, particularly with the club's current health struggles.
Frazier went 1-for-2 with a go-ahead three-run homer in the eighth inning off a 6-4 victory over the Orioles on Saturday. The 24-year-old entered as a pinch hitter in the sixth and struck out during his first at-bat, but he went deep with another opportunity and two runners on base two innings later. Frazier hasn't played much this season, but perhaps the big homer will earn him more at-bats. He is 3-for-12 with four RBI this year.
Frazier is in the lineup hitting seventh against the Tigers on Tuesday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports. Frazier was called up in wake of Giancarlo Stanton (biceps) hitting in the injured list and sat out Monday, but he'll act as the DH and occupy the seven hole in Tuesday's lineup. The 24-year-old had a tough time at the plate in spring training, posting a .143/.228/.245 line over 49 at-bats.
