Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Adam Frazier is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Luis Castillo and the Cincinnati Reds.
Kevin Newman will move up to the leadoff spot and slide to second base in place of Frazier. Erik Gonzalez will man shortstop and hit fifth while Wilmer Difo enters the lineup on third base and bats second. Colin Moran will bat third and Phillip Evans will handle the cleanup role.
