My instinct is that if Frazier were in the lineup, he'd still be in the 2-hole since it's worked the last few days. I guess the question is: why is Frazier not in the lineup? It could be that he has some sort of minor injury or wasn't feeling well, or some other reason we're not privy to. Obviously fair to wonder.
I'm sure Dusty has his reasons, though. This is what he is commended for by all his players: managing the clubhouse. The days on/off seem to be a part of that recipe.
