Todd Frazier told reporters after Saturday's loss to the Astros that he would love to return to the Yankees next season.
The impending free agent, who is from New Jersey, gushed about his time playing with the Yankees after a mid-season trade from the White Sox, "This group is like family -- a great family, from the coaching staff to the brass to the players. I've never been more excited to play the game of baseball than in a Yankee uniform with these guys. It's a privilege and an honor to play with these guys because they're class acts." He'll likely be seeking a multi-year deal this winter though, and it's unclear that the Yankees will be willing to give him one with Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar knocking on the door to the big leagues.

Todd Frazier belted a three-run home run and scored a pair of runs in Monday's win over the Astros.

Frazier basically just flicked his wrists and one-handed a ball just over the right-field wall for a three-run shot in the second inning off of Charlie Morton. It wouldn't have been a home run at any park other than Yankee Stadium, but we doubt Frazier cares. It's Frazier's first longball of the postseason, although he did have an RBI double in Game 2 of the ALCS.

Todd Frazier hit an RBI double in a loss to the Astros in Game 2 of the ALCS.

Frazier lifted a fly ball to left field that actually got stuck in the padding of the wall, resulting in a ground-rule double that plated the Yankees' only run in the game. Frazier went 1-for-3 in the game. The 31-year-old is hitting .167 with two RBI this postseason.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Multi-hit days have been few and far between for Frazier, as demonstrated by his lowly .214 batting average. It's been a rough season by his previous standards but he is finishing up with a strong month of September and looks poised to be a valuable contributor in the post-season if the Yankees can make it past the Wild Card game. Frazier has a .214/.344/.429 triple slash with 27 homers and 76 RBI in 146 games.
Sep 30 - 4:46 PM

Todd Frazier went 1-for-2 and popped a solo home run in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He deposited a Tim Mayza offering over the wall in the eighth inning. Frazier hit 40 bombs last year but has disappointed his fantasy owners by limping to a .214 batting average with 26 home runs and 75 RBI this season with the White Sox and Yankees. He's also seen his stolen base total drop from 15 a year ago to only four in 2017. He will be a free agent after the season and may struggle to find a starting role in 2018.

Todd Frazier (back) drew a walk and slugged a two-run homer in his return to action Saturday.

Frazier missed Friday's game with a stiff back, but he'll be fine. He's gone deep in consecutive contest and had three bombs over his last five games.
Sep 17 - 8:16 AM

Todd Frazier is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday because his back was "a little stiff," according to manager Joe Girardi.

The good news is the skipper said "it's nothing we're worried about" and he expects Frazier to be back in there Saturday. Chase Headley is at third base Friday, with Greg Bird at first.
Sep 15 - 4:08 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and two walks in a lopsided win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Frazier put an exclamation point on a miserable night for Wade Miley with his three-run, opposite-field bomb in the first inning. He also doubled in the contest. The homer was the fourth in the last 10 days for the 31-year-old, who has 25 homers, 71 RBI and 69 runs scored in 133 games this year. He's hitting just .214 in that span but owns a decent .345 on-base percentage and .777 OPS.
Sep 15 - 1:03 AM

Todd Frazier launched his 24th home run of the season Monday in the Yankees' 5-1 victory over the Rays.

Frazier finished off the Yankees' five-run fourth inning with a three-run shot off Tampa Bay starter Jake Odorizzi. The 31-year-old third baseman has three home runs and seven RBI over his last seven games, though he's still sporting a weak .210 batting average for the season.
Sep 11 - 11:04 PM

Todd Frazier went deep for his 21st homer Saturday in the Yankees’ win over the Red Sox.

He sent Chris Sale’s offering over the Green Monster in left field to give the Bombers a 4-2 lead in the sixth. Frazier also touched home on Tyler Austin’s three-run blast in the second inning. Both of Frazier’s two career hits off Sale have gone for home runs. Despite decent power numbers (21 home runs), the 31-year-old has hit an underwhelming .212 over 373 at-bats this season.
Aug 19 - 10:29 PM

Todd Frazier is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday against the Mets.

Frazier will get a breather after starting the series 1-for-7. Chase Headley will handle third base and bat sixth versus Mets right-hander Robert Gsellman.
Aug 16 - 4:13 PM

Todd Frazier delivered a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth inning on Friday as the Yankees rallied to beat the Red Sox.

The Yankees entered the eighth inning trailing 3-0, but rallied to score five times and emerged victorious. Frazier finished the evening 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting .215/.337/.424 with 19 homers and 53 RBI on the year.
Aug 11 - 11:13 PM

Todd Frazier went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and four runs scored to lead his club to an 11-5 victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He drilled a solo home run off starter Nick Tepesch in the second inning and added a two-run double in the fifth. The slugging third baseman owns a sickly .213 batting average but has 19 home runs, 52 RBI, 52 runs scored and four stolen bases in 100 games. He is unlikely to match the 40 bombs he detonated last year, nor the 15 bags he swiped.
Aug 10 - 12:59 AM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in a loss to the Indians on Friday.

Frazier’s fifth-inning blast was the only offense the Yankees could muster against Trevor Bauer. The 31-year-old is batting .208 (10-for-48) with two homers through 15 games with his new club. He’s up to 18 homers on the year.
Aug 4 - 10:25 PM

Todd Frazier is not in the Yankees' lineup Thursday against the Indians.

It looks like a routine day off for Frazier, who has hit .182 with one homer and four RBI since coming over from the White Sox in a trade last month. Ronald Torreyes will man the hot corner Thursday while hitting seventh against Tribe right-hander Corey Kluber.
