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.

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 14 - 4:51 PM

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.
Jun 8 - 12:10 AM
