Todd Frazier delivered a go-ahead sacrifice fly in a 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday night.

Billy Hamilton drew a one-out walk in the bottom of the eighth before stealing second and advancing to third on a wild pitch. Frazier then cashed him in before Aroldis Chapman finished off the victory. The Reds are now off to a perfect 4-0 start.
Apr 10 - 10:39 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-5 with a solo home run as the Reds eked out an 11-inning win against the Pirates on Wednesday.

Frazier went yard against Gerrit Cole in the first inning, giving him two round-trippers in as many games to begin the season. Frazier hit a career-high 29 home runs last season and looks poised to reprise the performance in 2015.
Apr 9 - 1:52 AM

Todd Frazier delivered a go-ahead, three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning in Monday's win over the Pirates.

Reds fans were sulking when Andrew McCutchen tied things up with a longball in the top of the frame, but they weren't down in the dumps for too long after Frazier took Tony Watson into the left field upper deck. It was Frazier only hit on the day and one of just five base knocks for the Reds. Frazier had a career-high 29 bombs last season.
Apr 6 - 8:08 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a three-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League game versus the Cubs.

Frazier homered on Thursday as well, now sitting on four spring blasts along with 12 RBI. His spring has been indicative of what to expect during the regular season: a mediocre average (.262, 11-for-42) with good power and occasional speed.
Mar 28 - 7:01 PM

Todd Frazier clubbed his third Cactus League home run, his only hit in three at-bats, in Thursday's game against the Indians.

Frazier went yard against Danny Salazar in the first inning, staking his team to an early lead. It was only his ninth hit in 38 spring at-bats (.237). Frazier likely won't hit for a high average in 2015, but his combination of power and speed makes him a valuable fantasy asset. He hit 29 home runs and stole 20 bases last season.
Mar 26 - 7:11 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the White Sox.

Frazier took David Robertson deep in the sixth inning, helping bring the Reds back to a 5-3 deficit at the time. He's gone deep in back-to-back spring games. On the heels of last year's breakout campaign, in which he hit 29 home runs while stealing 20 bases, Frazier should rank among the game's most valuable third basemen again in 2015.
Mar 18 - 7:27 PM

Todd Frazier swatted his first home run of the Cactus League season as the Reds topped the Indians 4-0 on Tuesday.

He finished the afternoon 1-for-3, raising his spring average to .182. While he's unlikely to repeat the monster fantasy season that he delivered in 2014 (specifically the 20 stolen bases), Frazier remains one of the most well-rounded third baseman in the game and a strong target in the early rounds.
Mar 17 - 11:07 PM

Todd Frazier had two hits and three RBI as the Reds drubbed the D'Backs on Thursday.

Frazier knocked in a run with a single in the first inning, then plated two more with a sixth-inning double. The third baseman broke out last season with 20 stolen bases, 29 home runs and 80 RBI. Frazier will be expected to provide a repeat performance in 2015.
Mar 12 - 8:17 PM

Todd Frazier was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to back spasms.

Frazier dealt with back issues last season, as well, but he's not concerned and expects to be back in action in a day or two. "It’s just a nuisance," the third baseman said. Chris Dominguez took Frazier's spot in the lineup on Sunday.
Mar 8 - 12:30 PM

Reds and 3B Todd Frazier avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year, $12 million contract.

The deal buys out Frazier's first two years of arbitration. It's a contract that looks pretty fair to both sides, as the third baseman was projected by MLBTradeRumors.com to earn $4.6 million in 2015. Frazier had a breakout 2014 campaign, batting .273/.336/.459 with 29 homers, 80 RBI and 20 stolen bases.
Feb 8 - 2:01 PM

Todd Frazier requested $5.7 million and was offered $3.9 million from the Reds when arbitration figures were exchanged.

However it plays out, Frazier will earn a significant raise over the $600,000 that he earned during a breakout 2014 season where he slashed .273/.336/.459 with 29 homers, 80 RBI and 20 stolen bases. MLBTradeRumors.com projects Frazier to earn $4.6 million, which is a bit closer to the Reds' figure.
Jan 16 - 10:21 PM

The Reds haven't yet approached Todd Frazier about a contract extension.

The 2014 season was a true coming out party for the 28-year-old, as Frazier hit .273/.336/.459 with 29 homers, 80 RBI, 88 runs scored and 20 stolen bases. He's arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter so there's no rush on the Reds' end to get something worked out, but the trend of teams locking up their homegrown players means the club will likely approach Frazier about an extension at some point.

Todd Frazier had a monster day at the plate in a come-from-behind victory over the Pirates on Saturday, blasting his 29th home run and scoring four times.

Frazier finished the afternoon 1-for-2 plus three walks, and he drove home a pair of runs. He has been one of the top all-around fantasy performers this season, slashing .274/.337/.461 with 29 long balls, 79 RBI and 20 stolen bases.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with a double and a home run in a win over the Brewers Tuesday.

Frazier started the scoring with a solo home run in the first inning. He's homered in two straight games and has 28 home runs on the season. That number is a career high, as is his 77 RBI, 83 runs scored and 20 stolen bases. It has truly been a career year for the 28-year-old.
