Pirates designate Todd Frazier for assignment
The Pittsburgh Pirates designated infielder Todd Frazier for assignment.
The Pirates added Ben Gamel to the active roster in a corresponding move. Frazier went 3-for-35 (.086) with the Pirates. Phillip Evans will start on first base and bat cleanup in Monday's series opener against right-hander Tyler Mahle and the Cincinnati Reds. Jacob Stallings has been bumped down a spot to hit fifth.
numberFire’s models project Evans for 7.7 FanDuel points and he has a $2,600 salary on Monday. Per our MLB Heat Map, Mahle owns the highest strikeout percentage (32.8) out of Monday's 10 listed starters and the Pirates are one of only two teams with an implied total below 3.5 runs.
