Debut Details
June 24, in an 8-6 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Frazier entered the game in a double switch in the top of the sixth inning, replacing reliever Kyle Lobstein in the batting order in the nine-hole and playing second base. He went 1-for-2 with a strikeout, lacing a line drive single to center field off of J.P. Howell in his first at bat before being called out on strikes against reliever Chris Hatcher in the ninth.

Player Notes
Frazier has been a fan – and organization – favorite in his first few years out of Mississippi State for his versatility and steady glove: wherever he happens to be in the field on any given day. Having seen time at second base, shortstop, third base and all three outfield spots, it’s really his bat that has gotten him to the big leagues. Though he has minimal power, he hit .324 in 103 games at Altoona (Double-A) in 2015 and was among the International League leaders in batting when promoted. That bat set him apart at MSU as well where he was not only the star shortstop for all three years he played but also set the school’s single-season record for hits with 107 in 2013 (thanks to reporter Ben Wait of the Columbus, Miss., Dispatch for that note!). While he can swipe a base, with 17 this year and 11 last year, his success rate is not one that would earmark him as a legit base stealer (yet, anyway) with 47 steals since turning pro in 2013 but also with 38 caught stealing’s in that span.
