News: 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.
