Pirates' Adam Frazier: Tallies four hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 4-for-5 with a triple, a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 3-2 win over the Giants.

Frazier had four hits in a game for the first time since August of 2019 and was crucial down the stretch in helping the Pirates secure a come-from-behind win Friday. The 29-year-old led off the ninth with a base hit and later came around to score to tie the game up and send it into extras. He then began the 11th by tying up the game again with a RBI triple and scored the winning run on a sacrifice fly. Frazier is quietly having an excellent season, slashing .315/.383/.456 with 16 extra-base hits, 13 RBI, 20 runs scored, three steals and a 14:19 BB:K.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Resting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Frazier will sit for just the second time all season in what amounts to a maintenance day after a string of 29 consecutive starts. Wilmer Difo will spell Frazier at second base, while left fielder Ka'ai Tom steps in as the Pirates' leadoff man.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Pops first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Reds.

The eighth-inning shot off Sean Doolittle was Frazier's first homer of the year. The 29-year-old extended his hitting streak to 12 games in the process, and he's batted a dazzling .340 (17-for-50) over that stretch, although he has only one steal, two RBI and six runs to show for it.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Three-hit effort Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Twins.

Frazier singled and scored in the first inning. In the seventh, he contributed an RBI single to a three-run rally, plating Jacob Stallings. Through 21 games, Frazier has slashed .310/.385/.429 with no home runs, 10 RBI, 12 runs scored and two stolen bases. While he hasn't gone deep, he has six doubles and two triples on the year.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Catalyst for offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 3-for-5 with a double, a stolen base and two runs scored Thursday against the Tigers.

Frazier was a driving force behind the Pirates' offensive output Thursday. He led the game off with his sixth double of the season and came around to score in the same inning. Frazier also tallied his second stolen base of the campaign, though he shouldn't be counted on to contribute significantly in that category. He doesn't have much power to showcase, but Frazier is hitting .329/.415/.471 across 82 plate appearances.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Legs out second triple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 2-for-5 with a two-run triple in Friday's 6-1 win over the Brewers.

The two hits lifted his batting average to .300 and the triple was his first hit against a southpaw in seven at-bats. Frazier has played second base exclusively after seeing time in the outfield in 2020. His line-drive rate (31.1 percent) is at its highest level since his rookie campaign (33.1 percent) in 2016. The 29-year-old is also playing well defensively as he builds his trade value heading into the summer months.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Tallies three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in a 5-1 win over the Padres on Wednesday.

Frazier doubled in the third and the fifth and then singled in two runs in the eighth to give the Pirates a comfortable 5-1 cushion and record his first three-hit effort since August. Frazier has stepped it up a notch over the last week with nine hits, five RBI and four runs scored in 22 at-bats after managing just three hits through his first five games. He'll look to continue his solid play and help the Pirates record a third win over four games against the Padres in Thursday's series finale against Chris Paddack.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Drives in one
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI on Thursday against the Cubs.

Frazier was one of the few sources of offense for the Pirates in this one, as he laced an RBI single in the fourth inning. Serving as the team's primary leadoff hitter, he has only five hits in 22 at-bats, but he's also worked out five free passes in six starts. Though he's on top of potentially the worst lineup in the majors, Frazier should still score runs at a decent clip if he continues to get on base regularly.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Resting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

After a sizzling spring training, Frazier has largely struggled to keep the momentum going into the regular season. While leading off in the Pirates' first five games, Frazier has gone 3-for-18 with a triple, double, four walks and a stolen base. He still appears to be locked in as Pittsburgh's table setter, but Frazier will get a breather for the series finale Wednesday and cede leadoff duties to Kevin Newman.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Reaches base four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI, two walks and a run scored during Thursday's win over the Cubs.

Frazier created havoc at the top of the order, reaching base in four of his six trips to the dish. He posted impressive numbers during spring training, slashing .488/.511/.860 in 45 plate appearances, and he's expected to serve as the Pirates' leadoff hitter against right-handed pitching.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Hitting leadoff in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier will bat leadoff and play second base in Thursday's opener at Wrigley Field.

He's 10-for-22 in his career with two doubles and two homers against the Cubs' Opening Day starter, Kyle Hendricks. Frazier also put together an amazing spring, slashing .488/.511/.860 in 45 spring plate appearances. As a result, fantasy owners might want to consider streaming Frazier on Opening Day.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Named leadoff hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates manager Derek Shelton said Frazier will serve as the team's leadoff hitter in Thursday's regular-season opener against the Cubs, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Frazier has ignited a surprisingly potent Pirates offense this spring, posting a monstrous 1.510 OPS over 39 at-bats. The small sample shouldn't supersede the .749 OPS he's posted over parts of five seasons in the majors, but Frazier's spring surge could at least give fantasy managers reason to hope that the 29-year-old may have more power upside than anticipated. Frazier hasn't merely lived off an elevated BABIP this spring, as 10 of his 21 hits entering play Monday have gone for extra bases.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Hit parade on display
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier is 12-for-18 with one stolen base in six Grapefruit League games.

The career .273 hitter batted just .230 in 209 at-bats in 2020, so he's looking for a rebound season. Frazier will serve as the team's primary second baseman, but manager Derek Shelton hasn't ruled out the occasional move to outfield. The 29-year-old got a late start this spring due to a hamstring injury -- he didn't debut until March 7 -- but the results thus far have been pretty good.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Has good day at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier (groin) went 2-for-3 with an infield single and an RBI double in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

Frazier legged out a ground ball to second base without re-injuring the groin muscle that kept him sidelined for the first week. While the 29-year-old eased his way back into the lineup as a designated hitter Sunday, he's expected to primarily play second base and occasionally move to the outfield. It wouldn't be surprising to see the team attempt to trade Frazier in the coming months as he's one of several options at second base and is set to make $4 million for the rebuilding Pirates.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Ready for first action this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier (groin) will make his spring debut in Sunday's exhibition game against the Orioles.

Frazier sat out the first week of games due to his sore groin, but he is ready to take the field for the first time this spring. He will be limited to DH duty, but he will be able to maximize his at-bats, as he will man the leadoff spot in Sunday's contest.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Still waiting to make spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier (groin) is not in the lineup for Saturday's spring game against the Yankees, according to Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic.

Frazier tweaked his groin in late February, and the injury has prevented him from seeing any action through the first week of spring games. It remains to be seen when he will take the field, but at this point it still seems likely he will be ready for Opening Day.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Dealing with minor knock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier is absent from workouts for the second straight day Friday due to a groin injury, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Manager Derek Shelton said Frazier was "a little dinged up" but didn't specify exactly when the injury occurred. This doesn't sound like anything more than normal wear and tear, and he still has more than a month to prepare for Opening Day, so there doesn't seem to be much reason to worry.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Penciled in as starter at keystone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier was named the Pirates' starting second baseman Monday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Frazier started 40 games at second base last season as well as 13 more in left field. His .230/.297/.364 slash line was rather unimpressive, but the Pirates aren't exactly loaded with talent at the big-league level right now. Erik Gonzalez, Kevin Newman and Cole Tucker are the team's top alternatives at second base, with someone among that group likely to start at shortstop in most games.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Gets $4.3 million from Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier agreed to a one-year, $4.3 million contract with the Pirates on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Frazier has typically graded out pretty well in the field but was pretty unlucky at the plate last season. He has a career .303 BABIP but that mark was down to .246 in 2020, leading to a career-worst .230 batting average. Most projection systems expect him to get back up in the .265 range, but he probably won't chip in enough home runs or stolen bases to be sought after in most formats.

Pirates' Adam Frazier: Belts long ball in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frazier went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in the Pirates' 7-0 win over the Cubs on Thursday.

Frazier's long ball off Alec Mills was his second in as many days. The outfielder added an RBI single an inning later and now has seven homers and 21 RBI on the campaign.
