Todd Frazier went 2-for-5 with three RBI, including a walk-off RBI single in the ninth inning, as the White Sox edged the Mariners 7-6 on Thursday.
Frazier yanked a Steve Cishek pitch through the left side of the infield in the seventh inning to plate two runs and tie the game, and he finished what he started two innings later. That time, he pulled a Nick Vincent offering over the third baseman's head and into the left field corner to bring home the winning run. Driving in runs is one thing the 30-year-old has done well this year, collecting 80 RBI, and he's also got 31 home runs. Those numbers have helped redeem a disappointing .211/.293/.447 line overall.

Todd Frazier went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Friday’s loss to the Athletics.

With the hitless night, Frazier’s batting average has dipped down to .207 for the year, which is the lowest he’s been since back on July 3. It’s tough to complain about someone who has 31 homers and 74 RBI, but using him in fantasy leagues comes with a sacrifice.

Todd Frazier hit a three-run home run in the 10th inning Tuesday to give the White Sox a 7-5 win over the Royals.

Frazier was hitless on the evening before he connected with a 97-mph fastball from Kelvin Herrera with two runners on in the 10th. The homer was Frazier's American League-leading 31st of the year. His counting stats are admirable -- he's got 72 RBI and 62 runs scored to go with those 31 dingers -- but Frazier's .213/.299/.474 line makes those homers a lot less attractive.

Todd Frazier (flu) is back in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

Frazier missed the last two days with the flu but is apparently feeling better. He's at first base, as Jose Abreu is getting a day off.
Jul 31 - 11:35 AM

Todd Frazier is not in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Twins.

Frazier sat out Friday's game with the flu and must still be feeling under the weather. Tyler Saladino is filling in at third base and will bat second versus Minnesota left-hander Tommy Milone. Frazier is listed on the lineup card as a bench option so we could see him as a pinch-hitter.
Jul 30 - 4:49 PM

Todd Frazier was a late scratch from the White Sox starting lineup on Friday due to flu-like symptoms.

Fantasy owners will be sad to miss out on a matchup against Ricky Nolasco. Tyler Saladino will start in his place at third base and bat eighth for the White Sox.
Jul 29 - 8:19 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with a double on Wednesday night as the White Sox lost to their crosstown rivals.

The multiple hits were a rarity for Frazier this season. He is batting only .215 but has 29 home runs to go with 58 runs and 67 RBI. He has added eight sneaky stolen bases as well.
Jul 28 - 12:14 AM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

Frazier offered a nice bit of insurance with his two-run homer in the top of the ninth. It pushed the White Sox advantage from 3-1 to 5-1. They would tack on one more run in the frame to win 6-1. The slugger is slashing .215/.302/.481 with 27 homers and 61 RBI over the course of 339 at-bats. Even by Frazier's all-or-nothing standards, that .215 average is a bit on the low side. Last season, he hit .255, much closer to his career mark of .251.
Jul 20 - 2:00 AM

Todd Frazier belted his 25th homer Saturday in a win over the Braves.

That's second in the American League behind Orioles outfielder Mark Trumbo. Frazier took Julio Teheran deep for a two-run blast in the second inning and added an RBI double in the third. Frazier's high strikeout rate and low batting average have both been well-documented but he's obviously had no trouble hitting the long ball this season. He'll try to repeat as the Home Run Derby champ Monday at Petco Park in San Diego.
Jul 9 - 5:25 PM

Todd Frazier reached base in all five of his plate appearances Monday against the Yankees.

Frazier went 3-for-3 with two doubles, an RBI, two walks, and two runs scored. He has hit safely in six straight games, pulling his batting average up from .198 to .212 on the year.
Jul 4 - 6:07 PM

Todd Frazier moved into a tie for the major league lead with 22 home runs on Wednesday night.

Frazier has really struggled to hit for average, last year's Home Run Derby champ is sitting on a .202/.301/.457 slash line. Much of that is due to an unlucky .188 BABIP that is nearly a hundred points below his career norm. Frazier hit 35 longballs last year and is on pass to surpass that this year. The batting average should slowly rise as the season progresses.
Jun 29 - 11:45 PM

Todd Frazier crushed his 20th home run of the season on Tuesday, powering the White Sox to a 3-1 victory over the Red Sox in Boston.

His solo shot off of Clay Buchholz in the fourth inning increased the White Sox advantage to 3-1 and wound up being the extent of the offense in the ballgame. He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a walk, raising his season slash to .200/.304/.455 with the aforementioned 20 bombs and 45 RBI.
Jun 21 - 10:46 PM

Todd Frazier's struggles continued Friday against the Indians, as he finished 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts.

Frazier is now hitless over his last four games and is batting just .128 (6-for-47) with 20 strikeouts this month. He has at least managed three homers and seven RBI in that time, but it’s been a brutal stretch for Chicago’s third baseman. His batting average is down to .202 on the year.
Jun 17 - 10:41 PM

Todd Frazier in not in the White Sox's starting lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.

Frazier is in the midst of an ugly slump and could probably use a night off to clear his head. He's two for his last 25 and has fanned 10 times over that span. Tyler Saladino will take over at third base and bat ninth. Frazier should be back in the lineup on Wednesday.
Jun 14 - 4:51 PM

Todd Frazier launched his 19th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

Frazier trails Mark Trumbo, who also homered on Tuesday, by one long ball for the American League lead. His two-run shot off Joe Ross in the second inning gave the White Sox an early 5-2 lead, but unfortunately their offense would go stagnant for the remainder of the ballgame. Frazier finished the night 1-for-3 plus a pair of walks, slashing .221/.321/.512 with the aforementioned 19 bombs and 42 RBI.
