Will Frazier get an extension?
Frazier has gone on record stating that he would love to play in Chicago past this season. But with the Sox in a clear rebuild, will the team actually resign the veteran slugger to an extension or trade him during the season?
Frazier has also stated he would like to be a clubhouse leader for the younger players this season. With his ability to lead a team, it would make sense for the Sox to extend him this spring. However, he could also increase his trade value this season and make it hard for the Sox to not move him before the trading deadline.
The Sox haven’t had a clear leader since Paul Konerko retired, and Frazier could very well be the leader this team needs during its rebuilding. If the Sox don’t extend Frazier this spring, it could mean the inevitable end of his time on the South Side. Although it might be brief, Frazier will most likely be remembered positively by Sox fans.
