Todd Frazier a one-game wonder so far in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier has two home runs and four RBI this season - all in one game last Thursday.

Frazier has struggled since. He ran his hitting streak to seven games, but had just one hit in four consecutive games after the explosion. He is hitless in his last eight at-bats, lowering his average to .273. More disturbing is that he has struck out nine times in just 33 at-bats this season and has committed two errors in nine games.


Todd Frazier's multi-home run game not enough vs. Cardinals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Todd Frazier goes hitless in return to lineup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier returned to the lineup on Sunday against the Brewers.

Todd Frazier leaves camp for child's birth


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Todd Frazier working to improve offensive game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) While most of Todd Frazier's numbers from 2012 to 2013 remained the same, he saw significant decreases in batting average, slugging percentage and OPS. Frazier, who is entering his third full season with the Reds, said he spent the offseason studying film of his at-bats from last season to try to figure out what went wrong, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

"With two strikes especially, what I'm swinging at or what they're throwing me. If I'm swinging out of the strike zone, I'm going to go down most of the time. I understand in the back of my head what they're trying to do to me," he said. "I want to try to be aggressive, but, at the same time, slow the mental state down a little bit. Try to get that base hit. Maybe not to try to overpower it every time."


Reds manager reveals batting order for 2014 season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Reds manager Bryan Price announced Wednesday his projected batting order for when a right-handed pitcher is on the mound.

Price said Billy Hamilton will lead off, and he will be followed by Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, Ryan Ludwick, Todd Frazier, Devin Mesoraco and Zack Cozart.

Price said he would likely switch Bruce and Ludwick in the lineup when a left-handed starter is on the hill. 

Price also reiterated he hasn't given much thought to batting Votto second.

Todd Frazier provides game-winning hit


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier singled home the game-winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning on Saturday in a walk-off win over the Dodgers. 

Frazier singled to right off Brian Wilson to score Billy Hamilton for the 4-3 win. Frazier finished the game going 1 for 5 with his 65th RBI of the year. He is batting .237.

Frazier is heating up at the right time for the Reds. He's hit in six straight games and has gone 10 for 25 over that span with two doubles, two home runs and five runs batted in. 


Todd Frazier homers twice in win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier had a big performance in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Cardinals, going 3 for 4 with two solo home runs.

Frazier wraps up an impressive series against the Cardinals in which the Reds won three of four games with eight hits in 16 at-bats, two doubles and two home runs. He's hit .237/.320/.405 with 15 home runs and 64 RBI in 459 at-bats.


Todd Frazier with monster performance


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier reached base four times and drove in four runs in Friday's 7-6 loss at Milwaukee. Frazier went 3 for 3 with a walk in the contest.

The third baseman hit his 12th home run in the fourth inning for a solo shot. He singled home two runs in the first inning and added an RBI single in the seventh. He now has 55 RBI on the year to go with his .237 batting average.

Frazier really needed a big game like Friday. He's still gone just 8 for 39 (.205) over 12 games in August with two homers, six RBI and 10 strikeouts.

Todd Frazier ends long home run drought


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier homered Wednesday against the Cubs, ending a long home run drought. Frazier had gone 32 games without a home run before launching his 11th homer Wednesday.

Frazier, who finished 2 for 4 with two runs, one double and two RBI Wednesday, hit .200 with one triple, eight RBI, nine doubles and 11 runs in 32 games between home runs.


Todd Frazier hitting second


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2013) For the first time in his career, Reds infielder Todd Frazier will hit second Wednesday against the Athletics. 

The team has mainly relied on Zack Cozart in the role this year. Frazier has received an at-bat in every other spot in the order over his career, but this will be his first game hitting second. He's hitting .235/.325/.387 in 362 at-bats.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Todd Frazier clubs 10th home run


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier hit his 10th home run in Monday's win over San Francisco

Frazier finished 2 for 3 with two runs and four RBI in the rain-shortened victory. He is now hitting .243/.338/.410 and has 41 RBI, partially thanks to playing behind one of the best lineups in the National League.


Todd Frazier struggling on road


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier went 0 for 1 and scored a run in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Rangers, continuing his struggles away from Cincinnati. Frazier has hit just .192/.303/.285 with two home runs and 12 RBI in 130 at-bats, compared to .282/.368/.511 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 131 at-bats in Cincinnati.

Todd Frazier having a solid June


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier entered June hitting .230, having hit his last home run on April 24. In 14 June games, though, Frazier has hit .294 with three home runs, an .889 OPS and a stolen base. 

While Frazier's overall line (.245 average, .762 OPS) leaves little to be desired, most of the damage came from an ugly May -- he was solid in April and relatively hot in June. The upside here is a decent average (maybe .260-ish), with around 25 home runs and 10-12 steals. Considering Frazier has first and third base eligibility, he gets a small boost in value for the multi-positionality. 

He's not a slam-dunk option for all leagues, but Frazier should be considered for a starting spot in most formats.


Todd Frazier gets day off


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is out of Sunday's lineup against Milwaukee for a day off, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Jack Hannahan gets the start in his place. Frazier has started 61 of Cincinnati's 69 games at third base this season. 

Todd Frazier smacks eighth home run


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier clubbed his eighth home run in a victory Wednesday over the Cubs.

Frazier finished 1 for 3 with the solo home run and a walk. Frazier went 39 games and over 150 plate appearances between hitting his sixth and seventh home runs, but he now has home runs in consecutive games. He's hitting .248/.344/.425.


Todd Frazier gets a day off


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is not in the team's starting lineup Monday against the Cubs. 

Jack Hannahan will get the start against Scott Feldman. Frazier has struggled after a strong start. He's hitting just .246/.340/.401 in 207 at-bats this year. Frazier may return Tuesday to face Matt Garza. 


Todd Frazier a buy-low candidate


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier went stone cold for a month after hitting .298 with five home runs in his first 15 games. But over his last 10 games, Frazier is starting to turn things around -- a .300 average with a double and four RBI in that span. 

The mini-streak brings Frazier up to .242 on the season, with six home runs and three steals. Thanks mainly to the hot start, Frazier is still 12th among all third basemen in Points leagues. With a few home runs and steals -- and a run where Frazier can bring his average back up to the .270-.280 area -- he can make a legitimate move into the top eight by the All-Star Game.  

Frazier should finish the season with over 20 home runs and 10-15 steals. Consider his month-long cold snap just an extended slump of bad luck (.198 BABIP), and look to buy Frazier low as he puts a homer-less May behind him.  


Todd Frazier showing signs of life


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier extended his hitting streak to four games Saturday against the Cubs with 1-for-3 day.

Frazier drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning and added an RBI single in the sixth. He also scored a run in a 5-2 win.

Frazier has upped his batting average from .214 to .239 over the last seven games by batting .409 in 27 at-bats. 


Todd Frazier out of Reds lineup


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mets.

Frazier is hitting just .217 in May but appears to be breaking out of the slump, as he has six hits in his last eight games. He'll get a chance to stay fresh Wednesday as Jack Hannahan gets a start at third base.


Todd Frazier snaps out of slump


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2013) Reds infielder Todd Frazier has not homered in May, but he showed a little life Saturday in a 10-0 win over the Phillies.

Frazier went 2 for 4 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored, ending a four-game hitless streak. Frazier is 7 for 44 in May, with a .474 on-base plus slugging percentage. He had six home runs in April. 


Todd Frazier not in Reds' lineup Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2013) Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is not in the club's lineup Tuesday.

Jack Hannahan will start at third and hit seventh during the game. Frazier should return to the starting lineup Wednesday against the Braves' Mike Minor. Frazier is hitting .239/.318/.451 in 113 at-bats. 


Losing confidence in Todd Frazier?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2013) What has happened to Reds third baseman Todd Frazier? After a torrid start to the season, Frazier has struggled the last few weeks, which has caused some Fantasy owners to dump him onto waivers.

But is that the right move? Maybe. It's not like Frazier's slump has lasted a few games. It's been several weeks. A .148 average and 24 strikeouts in his last 24 games isn't going to instill a lot of confidence in Fantasy owners. 

If you can afford to be patient for a few more weeks, then I say hold onto Frazier. He was due for a market correction after bursting out of the gate, but Frazier's has been a little more extreme because I think he's had a little bad luck in this stretch. He has just a .243 BABIP, which is well below his career .293 mark, per FanGraphs.com. Also, Frazier has just an 11.3 percent line-drive rate through 30 games, which is below his career 20.4 percent mark.

Also, it's worth pointing out Frazier has been terrible on the road this year. He's batting just .122 in 14 away games, as opposed to .316 in 16 home games. Frazier hasn't been great on the road in his career, but he hasn't been this bad of a hitter. In his career, he has a .255 average and .471 slugging percentage on the road.

It seems if these three trends head back toward the norm for Frazier, then we might start to see a more reliable Fantasy option emerge.
