On July 8, Frazier hit his first career walk-off home run off of Corey Knebel, giving the Yankees a 5-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. On July 19, Frazier changed his jersey number from No. 30 to No. 77, giving No. 30 back to the recently acquired David Robertson, who wore the number during his tenure with the Yankees from 2008 to 2014.

On August 10, 2017, Frazier was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a left oblique strain.
