Todd Frazier began July as somebody who figured to draw interest heading to the trade deadline. He ended the month still on the Mets, after offers that would yield anything of real value never materialized.
But the veteran third baseman still can bring a respectable bat to a solid Mets lineup that has hardly overwhelmed this season.
On Wednesday, he delivered an RBI single in the ninth for the go-ahead run in a 4-2 victory over the White Sox at Guaranteed Field that extended the Mets’ season-longest winning streak to six games.
Frazier entered batting only .208 in July, hardly boosting his trade stock after a torrid six-week stretch had resurrected his season.
