White Sox and 3B Todd Frazier avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $12 million contract.
Frazier smacked a career-high 40 home runs for the White Sox last season, although he batted only .225/.302/.464 overall. He'll be looking to improve that line in 2017 in what will be his walk year. Jan 13 - 1:07 PM

According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the White Sox have received "due diligence" calls on Todd Frazier.

Teams have put out feelers for Frazier but teammate Jose Abreu seems to be drawing more interest. Cafardo speculates that Frazier's impending free agency (he'll hit the market after next season) could be holding teams back from pursuing him. Frazier enjoyed a career year in 2016, slugging 40 homers and 98 RBI to go with 15 stolen bases.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that the Dodgers like Todd Frazier and have talked to the White Sox about a potential trade, but their first choice remains keeping Justin Turner.

It's no secret they'd like to keep Turner, but apparently they aren't willing to give him a five-year contract to do it. Even if Frazier doesn't end up on the Dodgers, the White Sox figure to find a match somewhere as they continue their rebuild. Frazier is due to become a free agent after 2017.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that the Dodgers have expressed interest in White Sox third baseman Todd Frazier.

There's mutual interest in Justin Turner returning to Los Angeles, but the Dodgers are monitoring the potential alternatives. Now that the White Sox have traded Chris Sale, it makes sense that Frazier will also be on the block. He's under team control for one more season before hitting free agency. Frazier hit just .225 with a .302 on-base percentage in 2016, but he slugged a career-high 40 homers.

Todd Frazier hit his 40th homer off the Rays' Eddie Gamboa during Wednesday's win.

It was the only run of the game for either team. Frazier has done absolutely nothing offensively besides hit home runs this year, but it's pretty much impossible to be a bad player while hitting 40 homers and playing quality defense. Frazier's OPS currently stands at .788. Right now, Albert Pujols is the only player ever to hit 40 homers and finish with a sub-.800 OPS; he came in at .787 last year.

Todd Frazier scored two runs and stole a pair of bases in Sunday's win over the Indians.

He also singled and drew a walk. Frazier is sporting a .226 batting average this season, but with 39 home runs, 96 RBI, 86 runs and 14 stolen bases, fantasy owners aren't going to complain.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-5 with a home run and scored twice in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

The solo longball in the sixth inning was his 39th round-tripper of the season. Frazier's .225 batting average is painful but he is good everywhere else. He has 96 RBI and 84 runs scored and has even stolen 12 bases.

Todd Frazier slugged a long two-run homer against the Twins on Friday.

Frazier has homered in back-to-back games and three out of his last four. He’s now sitting on 35 home runs for the year, which gives him the new franchise record for a third baseman. White Sox manager Robin Ventura hit 34 round-trippers back in 1996.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with his 34th home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Twins.

Frazier hit the solo blast off Twins starter Ervin Santana in the second inning. His 34 dingers are third-most in the American League, and he's just one shy of the single-season best he set last year with the Reds. Continuing another trend started last year, Frazier has become increasingly one-dimensional at the plate, batting just .215/.296/.456 with those 34 homers, 84 RBI and 70 runs scored.

Todd Frazier launched his 33rd home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

It was a two-run shot off of Daniel Norris in the second inning that got the scoring going. While Frazier's on-base percentage is sitting at a lowly .295, he has a good shot to set a new career high in home runs. He's also pitched in with his third straight double-digit stolen base season.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk on Friday against the Mariners.

His solo blast off Felix Hernandez in the seventh inning was the only offense of the night for Chicago. Frazier is now sitting on 32 homers and 81 RBI, though he’s been relatively quiet during the second half and has a disappointing .214/.297/.455 batting line on the year.

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.
