Todd Frazier seeing more time at first base


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Reds infielder Todd Frazier started his third straight game at first base Thursday, as he continues to see more time away from his native third base position.

The reason for the move is not because the team is disappointed with Frazier's defensive play at third base, but rather than utility infielder Kristopher Negron has been too hot to keep out of the lineup recently.

"I haven't really talked to [Price] about it, but with Negron doing so well, why not?" Frazier told MLB.com. "He's a great defender. He's a great utility guy. You want to put the guy in that's hot right now. You have Skip [Schumaker] doing well too."

Frazier has played 27 times at first base this season, including 22 starts. The absence of Joey Votto has been the main reason he has seen more time at first, after appearing there in no games a year ago.

David Wright: Shoulder problem not reason from slump


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Shoulder still hampering David Wright


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014)  Mets third baseman David Wright is still dealing with issues with his left shoulder, hitting coach Lamar Johnson admitted to the New York Daily News Monday.

"When your shoulder is hurt, it's really tough," Johnson told Metsblog. "It's hurt in his left shoulder and that's where your swing starts, with your left side, your left hand getting to the ball. It's been tough because he's been trying to play through that. It's just been a real tough haul because it's hard to get a consistent swing when you're in pain."


Wright, who is also dealing with a neck injury that forced him out of Sunday's game, has struggled mightily recently. He has just eight home runs on the season. He is in the midst of a 143 at-bat homerless streak currently, but has maintained that the shoulder is not an issue.
