Todd Frazier is making his second exit from the Pirates, this one not on his own accord. 

On Monday, the Pirates designated the struggling veteran infielder for assignment to add outfielder Ben Gamel to the roster.

Frazier originally signed with the Pirates as a minor-league free agent during spring training, but opted out of his contract when he was told he did not make the team. A few days later he returned to the team on a similar deal to go to the alternate site.
