Todd Frazier: Moves to independent ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier signed a contract with the independent Sussex County Miners on Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The 35-year-old recently played for Team USA in the Olympic qualifiers after parting ways with Pittsburgh in mid-May, and he'll now continue his career in independent ball. Frazier struggled during his time with the Pirates, going 3-for-35 in 13 games.

Todd Frazier: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier elected free agency after being designated for assignment Monday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Frazier opted for free agency rather than accepting an assignment to Triple-A Indianapolis. He'll search for a deal with another team, though he's struggled to a .086/.200/.114 line across 40 plate appearances this season and is nearing the end of his career.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Time in Pittsburgh over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates designated Frazier for assignment Monday.

Pittsburgh booted Frazier off the 40-man roster to make room for outfielder Ben Gamel, who was claimed off waivers from Cleveland. Over his 13 games with the Pirates, Frazier went 3-for-35 (.086 average) with no home runs. The 35-year-old's time in the big leagues looks like it could be nearing an end.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Collects two hits in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 2-for-4 in Sunday's 6-5 win against the Cubs.

The 35-year-old has struggled with his timing at the plate. He's now 5-for-35 in 2021, but Sunday's showing figures to keep him in the lineup with Colin Moran (groin) out for the next couple weeks. Frazier inexplicably took his foot off of first base while covering on a routine ground ball to second base, but the gaffe didn't cost his team. Manager Derek Shelton told 93.7 The Fan on Sunday that Phillip Evans and even Erik Gonzalez could also see time at first base.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Playing time opens up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier should see increased playing time at first base after Colin Moran (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Moran exited Saturday's contest with the groin issue and will now be sidelined at least 10 days, opening up the starting spot at first base. Frazier has only one hit through his first 31 at-bats of the season, so it could be a brief opportunity if he's unable to get things going offensively.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Gets second start in May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier will start at third base and bat seventh Friday against the Cubs.

The 35-year-old has struggled since joining the team, going 3-for-23 with a 3:5 BB:K. Frazier has just one extra-base hit, a double, and will need to show more to stay on the roster. He's hitless in six career at-bats against Friday starter, Trevor Williams.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Ends slump, reaches base thrice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI, a run scored and two walks in Wednesday's loss against the Royals.

Frazier started the season 0-for-14 through his first four games and was benched Tuesday, but he emerged from the day off with his first hit in the form of a two-run double in the bottom of the fifth. The veteran doesn't appear ticketed for a big role following his slow start to the campaign, however, and his opportunities -- particularly in NL parks -- might be limited going forward.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Moves into bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals in Pittsburgh, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

After being added to the active roster Thursday, Frazier was able to pick up four consecutive starts in American League parks thanks to the Pirates having the designated hitter available. He failed to capitalize on the steady at-bats, going 0-for-14 with four strikeouts. With the Pirates beginning a five-game homestand Tuesday, Frazier's opportunities will likely be more limited moving forward.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Contract selected by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier's contract was selected by the Pirates on Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Frazier returned to the Pirates in late March after he initially opted out of his contract, and he'll now join the major-league roster. The 35-year-old appeared in 45 games with the Mets and Rangers last year, slashing .236/.302/.382 with four home runs and 12 RBI. Ke'Bryan Hayes (wrist) recently suffered a setback in his recovery, so Frazier could carve out a nice chunk of playing time in the near future.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Back with Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier returned to the 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.

Todd Frazier: Opts out of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier exercised the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Frazier missed some time this spring due to lower-back tightness and wasn't slated to begin the season on the major-league roster, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The 35-year-old still plans to play in 2021 but will search for a new opportunity in free agency.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Collects two hits in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier (back) went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk Thursday against the Orioles, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

Frazier beat out an infield single in his final at-bat, showing that he has recovered from a lower-back injury. He's batting .259 with five extra-base hits this spring and seems set to start 2021 as the lesser half of a platoon with Colin Moran at first base.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier (back) will bat cleanup and play first base Thursday against Baltimore.

Frazier had been out of the lineup since getting scratched Sunday with lower-back tightness. He's ready to play again one week before the regular season begins and will look to complete his case for a roster spot.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Showing improvement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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: Remains day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier (back) is considered day-to-day, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Frazier was scratched from the Pirates' lineup Sunday with back tightness, though the team hasn't offered a timetable for his return. He's impressed with the bat this spring and seems likely to platoon at first base with Colin Moran, unless this injury is serious enough to sideline him for a significant amount of time.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Scratched with back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier won't start Sunday's spring game against the Red Sox due to lower back tightness.

The 35-year-old was penciled in to start at first base and bat fifth, but he was scratched due to the back issue. Frazier has a .935 OPS with three homers in 24 at-bats while competing for a roster spot in spring training. It's unclear if the injury will affect his availability for Opening Day, should he make the roster.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Makes good first impression
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier hit a home run Sunday in his Grapefruit League debut with the Pirates.

The 35-year-old, who served as the team's designated hitter, is expected to compete with Colin Moran for playing time at first base. Frazier's best chance to see the field is likely against left-handed pitching.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Platoon scenario?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Pirates pitching.

Pirates' Todd Frazier: Inks deal with Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier signed a minor-league deal with the Pirates on Friday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Kevin Williams of Shore Sports Network reports.

The 35-year-old will join his fifth team in the past five years. Frazier had a .236/.302/.382 slash line with four homers in 172 plate appearances between the Mets and Rangers in 2020. He'll likely be a bench option in the corner infield spots if he manages to make the Opening Day roster, but the team does have a vacancy at first base after trading Josh Bell in the offseason.

Todd Frazier: Slated to hit free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets plan to decline Frazier's team contract option Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Frazier was traded from the Rangers to the Mets in August of 2020, but he'll now search for a new club after his contract was bought out by New York for $1.5 million. The 34-year-old had a career-worst .684 OPS with four home runs and 12 RBI in 2020, and he'll likely have to settle for a part-time role to begin the 2021 campaign.
