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.
Aug 3 - 4:11 PM

Todd Frazier finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Yankees' loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.

Frazier is 8-for-44 (.182) with just one extra-base hit and 12 strikeouts in 14 games since being traded from the White Sox. He's going to need a strong finish in pinstripes to improve his free agent stock this winter.
Aug 2 - 8:46 PM

Todd Frazier hit his first home run in a Yankees uniform as part of Wednesday's 9-5 defeat of the Reds.

Frazier took Tony Cingrani deep to left in the Yankees' five-run bottom of the seventh inning. He also singled in the bottom of the third, finishing 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored. Frazier is 5-for-21 (.238) since being acquired from the White Sox last Wednesday.
Jul 26 - 4:22 PM

Todd Frazier (hand) is in the Yankees' lineup Thursday against the Mariners.

Frazier took a pitch off his right hand Wednesday in his Yankees debut but is good to go for Thursday night's series opener. He's starting at third base and batting seventh against Seattle right-hander Felix Hernandez. Chase Headley is handling first base.
Jul 20 - 7:35 PM

Todd Frazier (hand) is expected to be in the Yankees' lineup for Thursday's series opener against the Mariners.

Frazier was hit by a pitch on the right hand near the end of Wednesday's loss to the Twins while making his Yankees debut as a pinch-hitter. He was able to stay in the game, though, and should be ready to roll against Seattle on Thursday.
Jul 19 - 5:24 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Todd Frazier would be the everyday third baseman moving forward.

Frazier -- acquired from the White Sox on Tuesday -- has experience at both third base and first base, but he will be manning the hot corner in New York. Girardi said that Chase Headley would be going through a "crash course" at first base as the team looks to integrate its newest offensive toy.
