      Pirates' Todd Frazier: Back with Pirates

      Todd Frazier returned to the Pittsburgh 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.

      Pirates' Todd Frazier: Showing improvement

      Todd Frazier (back) has been able to take swings in the batting cage this week, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.The veteran corner infielder continues to progress in his recovery from lower-back tightness, but it's unclear if he'll be ready to rejoin the lineup before the Pittsburgh Pirates' Grapefruit League schedule comes to a close. Assuming he's back to full health heading into Opening Day, Frazier, a non-roster invitee, should be in good position to win a bench role.

      Pirates' Todd Frazier: Platoon scenario?

      Todd Frazier's path to playing time is most likely as the right-handed portion of a first base platoon with the left-handed-hitting Colin Moran, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.Although Frazier has primarily served as a third baseman throughout his career, the team's brightest prospect, Ke'Bryan Hayes, figures to see the bulk of playing time at the hot corner this year. Frazier has totaled 113 games at first base. Last year, he hit .343 against southpaws in 43 at-bats. While his roster spot isn't guaranteed off a minor-league deal, his main competition is the likes of Will Craig and the versatile Phillip Evans. As such, Frazier could prove to be a viable streaming option. He holds a career slash line at PNC Park of .307/.379/.553 with eight home runs, but of course that came against Pittsburgh Pirates pitching.

Frazier had a .236/.302/.382 slash line with four homers in 172 plate appearances between the Mets and Rangers in 2020.
