News: Frazier is expected to serve as the team's starting second baseman and occasional designated hitter, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Impact: The 28-year-old could bat third in the lineup, replacing the departed Starling Marte. Manager Derek Shelton said that while Frazier was a "good enough athlete" to play in the outfield he would likely stay at second base. "There's no plans for him to go out and play left. It's just to be in the infield, at second," Shelton said. "I would assume he's going to get some DH days because it gets him off his feet." Frazier spent the last couple months working out at Mississippi State, where he played collegiate baseball.
