An executive "of a team that's talked to the Reds" told ESPN's Jayson Stark that Todd Frazier is available.
There had been some thought that Frazier might survive the Reds' rebuild -- at least for another year or so -- but Stark says this executive is "convinced" the third baseman can be had for the right price. Frazier, 29, smashed a career-high 35 home runs in 157 games this past season for Cincinnati. He carries two more years of arbitration eligibility. Every team in Major League Baseball is seeking cost-controlled power. Nov 16 - 3:05 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 plus a walk as the Reds dropped their season finale to the Pirates on Sunday.

It has been a brutal second half of the season for Frazier. He hit an outstanding .284/.337/.585 with 25 homers and 57 RBI in the first half, but hit just .220 with 10 homers and 32 after the All-Star break.

Todd Frazier left Tuesday's game versus the Cubs with a "slight" strain of his right Achilles tendon.

Frazier hurt himself while sliding to make an attempt at a foul popup. Even if the strain is slight as the Reds say, you can bet that they'll proceed cautiously with the third baseman. Don't expect him to play much, if at all, for the rest of the week.

Todd Frazier is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

It appears to be a routine day off. Ivan DeJesus Jr. is at third base while Frazier rests.
Sep 20 - 11:06 AM

Todd Frazier went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Brewers.

Frazier squared up on a Taylor Jungmann offering for a two-run homer in the sixth inning. The bomb was his 35th of the season and boosted his RBI total to 86. In addition to the power, he's also swiped 13 bases. The Home Run Derby champ is slashing .259/.313/.517 through 144 games.
Sep 19 - 11:22 PM

Todd Frazier hit a solo home run to break a tie in the 10th inning, helping the Reds outlast the Giants in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Frazier hit by a pitch in the seventh inning and wound up scoring. He committed a throwing error in the ninth inning, which helped the Giants rally to tie the game, but made up for it by putting the Reds ahead with a solo homer in the 10th. The third baseman has homered four times in his last seven games, perhaps a sign his second half slump is finally over. Frazier is batting .259/.312/.516 overall with 34 home runs, 85 RBI, 80 runs scored, and 12 stolen bases.
Sep 16 - 2:19 AM

Todd Frazier launched a solo homer and scored a pair of runs in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Frazier took Michael Wacha out to dead-center field in the second inning to get the scoring started and he then scored a run on a Taylor Barnhart sac fly in the fourth. That was it for the Reds, though, as they were outscored 9-0 the rest of the way. Frazier has been awful in the second half but has gone deep in three of his last five games.
Sep 13 - 4:42 PM

Todd Frazier went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI against the Cardinals on Thursday.

Frazier also homered in Wednesday's game against the Pirates, so perhaps his two-month slump is finally coming to an end.
Sep 10 - 10:44 PM

Todd Frazier had a homer, a sac fly and a walk against the Pirates on Wednesday.

One of the NL's best players for three months, Frazier has been in quite a rut for a good long time now. He has just six homers in 60 games since the beginning of July after hitting 25 in his first 75 games. If he doesn't turn it around soon, he could finish the year with a sub-.250 average, .300 OBP and .800 OPS.
Sep 9 - 11:13 PM

Todd Frazier had two doubles, a walk, and an RBI in four plate appearances, but the Reds were sent home 5-1 losers on Tuesday after facing the Dodgers.

Frazier gave the Reds their only run with an RBI double in the sixth inning off of Chris Hatcher. The third baseman has not done much offensively in the second half after winning the Home Run Derby. He entered play Tuesday batting .204 (29-for-142) since July 17. Overall, Frazier owns a .263/.315/.524 triple-slash line with 29 home runs, 75 RBI, 68 runs scored, and 11 stolen bases.
Aug 25 - 11:14 PM

Todd Frazier went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, two doubles, two runs scored and a walk in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

As is typically the case for the Reds, Frazier's fingerprints were all over this one. He hit an RBI single in the first inning against Diamondbacks starter Randall Delgado and made himself a nuisance with a pair of doubles and a walk through the rest of the contest. Neither of his later doubles did RBI damage. The slugger is hitting .263/.315/.526 with 29 homers, 74 RBI and 10 steals on the season.
Aug 22 - 11:55 PM

Todd Frazier broke out of his slump, going 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

The Reds fell behind 11-0 after three innings, but Frazier added a run with a double in the fourth, then made it an 11-4 game in the ninth with a solo home run off of Frank Garces. The third baseman entered Tuesday's action batting .059 (2-for-34) in August. Frazier is batting .260/.313/.530 on the season with 28 home runs, 69 RBI, and 10 stolen bases.
