I've seen him around ten games since he's moved up, so perhaps I can answer. From what I've seen, he's okay at second, but lacks range. He is also learning the position so his footwork is a work in progress. But he's already good around the bag on the double play and his arm will absolutely play there.
It will probably take the winter and Spring Training before he's good enough to play there as an offensive player. It'll take him a couple years to be average or better.
Really, Frazier at second depends on his bat. If he can OPS at 800+, he's worth it. If he's a 700 or worse OPS bat, he's too much of a drag.
