1B,3B - PIT - MiLB
Todd Frazier went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI, a run scored, and two walks in Wednesday's loss to the Royals.
Frazier started the season 0-for-14, but ended his slump on Wednesday. The veteran might struggle to find playing time, even in the hapless Pirates' lineup (especially in NL parks).
Todd Frazier was called up to join the Pirates before Thursday's game.
The Pirates designated Dustin Fowler for assignment in a corresponding move. Frazier declined the assignment to the minor league roster after Spring Training, but is getting his chance with the big club. He should fill in at first base, and potentially third base, for the Pirates.
Veteran third baseman Todd Frazier has re-signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates on a minor-league deal, per Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic.
Assuming he would not make the Opening Day roster, Frazier elected to become a free agent last week. He'll report to the team's alternate training site and should be called up to the major league club at some point this spring.
Todd Frazier exercised his opt-out from the Pirates and is now a free agent.
Frazier actually had a very solid spring, hitting three home runs with roughly a 1.000 OPS. Rumor has it that he was informed he wasn't making the team which, to be fair, makes sense, given the Pirates' situation. Frazier will likely latch on with another team, though he'll be just a bench bat, and not worth rostering in any format.
Todd Frazier and the Pittsburgh Pirates are in discussions regarding a minor league deal.
The veteran third baseman, Todd Frazier hit four home runs, 16 runs, 12 RBI, and one steal with a .236 batting average in 2020. In 2018 and 2019, Frazier averaged 19 home runs, 58 runs, 63 RBI, and five steals with a .233 batting average. At this point, even if he signs, he's only value in AL/NL only or deep-leagues as a hitter streamer.
