One of the biggest issues the Pittsburgh Pirates have to face this season is their middle infield situation. Right now, it seems that Adam Frazier and Kevin Newman will have second base and shortstop to themselves, but that could change at a moment’s notice. Cole Tucker is making it hard to send him back to Triple-A, and between Newman and Frazier, Frazier may be the likeliest to lose his starting job.
Now, that’s no knock on Adam, either. Last season, Frazier got his first chance at regular playing time at second base and did solid.
