Among NL second baseman, he ranked second in fielding percentage, fourth in range factor/9IP, fourth in putouts, fourth in assists, fourth in double plays and third in total zone runs.
Frazier’s competition at the position consists of Ozzie Albies of the Atlanta Braves and Kolten Wong of the St Louis Cardinals.
