Frazier is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins. Frazier saw a three-game, multi-hit streak come to an end in Saturday's 4-3 loss, when he went 0-for-2 with a walk. He'll sit for the third time this month in what likely amounts to a normal off day.
Frazier is not in the lineup Monday against the Braves. Frazier will give way to Colin Moran at the keystone for Monday's series opener following a string of three consecutive starts. Since the start of June, Frazier is slashing .286/.355/.500 with two doubles, two triples and a 2:4 BB:K in eight games.
Frazier is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves. Frazier will rest for the day game after a night game after starting in each of the Pirates' last seven contests. Kevin Newman -- who unseated Frazier as the team's primary leadoff man in late May -- will man the keystone in the series finale.
Frazier is starting at second base and hitting eighth Thursday against the Brewers. Frazier has primarily hit leadoff this season, but a slow start at the plate (.250 average and .655 OPS through 48 games) has prompted the Pirates to give 25-year-old Kevin Newman -- who is hitting .347 through 28 games this season -- a turn atop the order.
Frazier (foot) isn't in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Reds. Frazier will take a seat for the second straight contest, as he was also held out of the lineup for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader. He was drilled by a pitch in the foot in Game 1 and was spotted with a wrap on the same foot Tuesday, though the team has yet to reveal the severity of the injury. Kevin Newman draws the start at the keystone and will lead off.
