Frazier is not in the lineup Saturday against the Cubs.
Kevin Newman will slide over to play second base as Jung Ho Kang gets the start at shortstop against Chicago lefty Jon Lester. Frazier is slashing a phenomenal .529/.556/.824 with a home run, 11 runs scored and seven RBI in seven July starts. The left-handed-hitting second baseman owns a .659 career OPS against left-handed pitching.
Frazier went 3-for-6 with an RBI in Friday's 7-6 loss to the Brewers.
After batting eighth in the lineup for most of June, he's hit leadoff in each of the last four games he has started. Frazier will likely continue to rotate hitting out of the top spot with Kevin Newman, based upon pitching matchups. The second baseman now has 13 hits in his last 21 at-bats, raising his batting average from .254 to .279 since June 30.
Frazier is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs.
While returning to the leadoff spot for the first time since June 9, Frazier was instrumental in helping the Pirates secure wins in the first three games of the series. During those three contests, Frazier went 10-for-14 with a home run, five doubles, six RBI, six runs and a stolen base. Even though Kevin Newman has shined as the Pirates' primary leadoff option for more than a month, manager Clint Hurdle may reconsider his lineup slotting while Frazier sports a red-hot bat.
Frazier went 4-for-4 with a three-run home run and three runs in a 5-1 victory against the Cubs on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old is on quite the tear, racking up nine hits while slugging a home run and five doubles in two games against the Cubs this week. That stretch alone has raised his average and OPS 22 and 65 points, respectively. Frazier is batting .276 with four home runs, 24 RBI, 44 runs and two steals in 290 at-bats this season.
Frazier, who collected five hits Monday, batted first in the lineup for the first time since May 29.
The second baseman hit leadoff only because Kevin Newman sat out after seeing his 19-game hitting streak come to an end over the weekend. Though he hit .266 with no homers in June, he's shown the ability to go on long streaks. In 2018, Frazier slashed .306/.357/.533 in his final 196 plate appearances following a month-long demotion.
Frazier went 5-for-6 with four doubles, two RBI and three runs scored in Monday's 18-5 win over the Cubs.
Several Pirates had career days in Monday's offensive explosion and Frazier was no exception. It was his first career five-hit performance and raised his OPS from .672 to .706. With rookie Kevin Newman swinging a hot bat, Frazier needs to continue making an impact at the plate to keep himself in the lineup.
Frazier is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Astros.
Frazier will head to the bench for the third time in six games as Colin Moran draws a start at the keystone. Though he initially thrived at the dish after being dropped as the Pirates' leadoff man in favor of Kevin Newman earlier this month, Frazier has fallen into an offensive funk of late. Over his last nine games, Frazier has recorded four hits in 24 at-bats.
Frazier is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.
Frazier will head to the bench for the second time in the series with lefty Joey Lucchesi on the mound for the Friars. Kevin Newman will slide over to second base while Jung Ho Kang starts at shortstop.
Frazier is not starting Friday against the Padres.
Frazier owns a solid .291/.361/.455 line in the month of June. He'll hit the bench against lefty Eric Lauer on Friday, with Kevin Newman sliding over to second base and Jung Ho Kang starting at shortstop.
Frazier batted eighth and went 0-for-3 against Detroit on Tuesday.
He also made a costly error at second base for the second time in three games Tuesday. Frazier put up three straight two-hit games last week, but his overall game could lead Pittsburgh to consider alternatives at second base. He's slashing .258/.320/.373 with three homers and two stolen bases in 277 plate appearances.
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) will start at second base and lead off Wednesday against the Reds.
Frazier was out of the lineup for the second game of Monday's doubleheader along with Tuesday's 11-6 loss while dealing with a sore foot that stemmed from being hit by a pitch. The day off appears to have done Frazier some good, as he received the green light to re-enter the lineup at his usual position and lineup spot. Cole Tucker will head to the bench to open up room in the infield for Frazier.
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.
Frazier isn't in the starting lineup for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against Cincinnati.
Frazier led off in Game 1 and went 2-for-4 with a run scored in an 8-5 victory for Pittsburgh. It's worth noting that he was struck by a pitch on his foot, though there's been no word from the team about any sort of injury. Colin Moran gets the call at the keystone and will bat fifth with Frazier riding the pine.
Frazier went 2-for-5 with a solo home run against the Dodgers on Sunday.
The homer was his first in 63 plate appearances and third of the season. Frazier entered Sunday with a disappointing .093 ISO, below his career mark of .133. Pittsburgh has given no indication that he's in jeopardy of losing his full-time spot at second base, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Kevin Newman steal some starts at second if Frazier's struggles persist.
Frazier, who has a modest four-game hitting streak, is 4-for-8 with three doubles against Tuesday's starter, German Marquez.
He held a career .280 batting average prior to 2019 but has struggled to a slash line of .255/.314/.354 this year. Frazier missed several games with a back issue early on and has hit just .242 since returning April 21. The injury could have affected his ability to run -- he has two stolen bases overall and has attempted just one since April 13. His 0.4 defensive WAR at second base marks the first time he's registered a positive fielding rating, but the team was likely expecting more after installing him as its everyday second baseman.
Frazier won't start Friday's game against San Diego.
Frazier has hit safely in eight of his last 10 games, though he's slashing just .231/.250/.385 over that stretch. Kevin Newman will draw the start at second base and hit leadoff in Frazier's absence.
