Todd Frazier hit his 24th home run of the season on Friday.

Frazier hit the solo shot in the eighth, long after the game was out of reach (the Reds lost 14-5). He finished the game 3-for-5. Hitting aside, Frazier also committed an error in the field and was caught stealing in this one. The solo homer brought his RBI total up to 72. He's slashing .276/.337/.454 this year in what's been a nice 2014 campaign.

Todd Frazier singled and belted a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Braves.

The longball was his 22nd of the season but just his third in 32 games since the All-Star Game (and Home Run Derby). With a .279 average, 67 RBI and 17 stolen bases to go along with the 22 bombs, Frazier has been the most valuable third baseman in fantasy this season.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

The fourth-inning blast was much needed for Frazier, who hadn't homered since July 20. Power deficiency aside, Frazier has surged in August after a lackluster July, going 19-for-57 (.333) with 10 RBI and eight runs scored this month. The third baseman is hitting .284/.344/.465 with 21 home runs and 66 RBI.

Todd Frazier (back) is hoping to play in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Rockies.

Frazier hasn't played since tweaking his back on Thursday and said Sunday that he's still feeling some soreness. "Usually when I have this, it takes a couple of days. But it’s nagging right now. We’ll see how it goes," Frazier said. Kris Negron is at third base for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader.

Todd Frazier is not in Friday's lineup due to lower back soreness.

Frazier tweaked his back during his second at-bat on Thursday and woke up Friday feeling worse. It appears at this point to be a day-to-day injury, but the Reds haven't said when they think he might return to the lineup. Ramon Santiago is at third base Friday.
Aug 15 - 5:31 PM

Todd Frazier had a nice night at the plate in Friday's loss to the Marlins, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

After a very disappointing 2013 campaign, Frazier has bounced back in a big way for the Reds in 2014. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .283/.342/.465 with 20 round trippers, 60 RBI and 17 stolen bases.
Aug 8 - 10:07 PM

Todd Frazier had a four-hit day against the Marlins on Sunday, finishing 4-for-5 with an RBI.

The four-hit outing was Frazier's fourth multi-hit performance in his last eight games. The third baseman is enjoying a very strong season, batting .282/.340/.468 with 20 home runs, 58 RBI and 16 stolen bases on the year.
Aug 3 - 4:51 PM

Todd Frazier knocked in what turned out to be the deciding run, finishing 2-for-4 overall in Tuesday's 3-0 victory over the D'Backs.

Frazier singled in Billy Hamilton in the first inning, giving the Reds a 1-0 lead. It would be all the offense Mike Leake needed, as the Reds' starter blanked the D'Backs over 7 2/3 innings. Jonathan Broxton and Aroldis Chapman combined to get the final four outs for the shutout. With Joey Votto out, Frazier and Devin Mesoraco have been the lifeblood of the struggling Reds' offense. The third baseman has a .280/.340/.475 slash line with 20 home runs, 55 RBI, and 16 stolen bases.
Jul 29 - 9:58 PM

Todd Frazier hit his 19th home run of the season, a two-run blast, as the Reds bested the Pirates 6-3 on Sunday.

The homer was Frazier's second in as many days, and it was his only hit in five at-bats. His 19 home runs are fourth-most in the National League at the break, and he's also among the league leaders in runs scored (57) and slugging percentage. Perhaps no player had a bigger breakout in the first half -- Frazier will take a .290/.353/.500 line with 14 stolen bases and 53 RBI into the second half.
Jul 13 - 6:56 PM

Todd Frazier has been named by National League captain Troy Tulowitzki as a participant in the Home Run Derby.

Todd Frazier launched a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.

It was a Great American Ball Park special for Frazier, as his drive just cleared the wall in right field to break a 2-2 tie in the fifth inning. The third baseman also drew a walk on the day and scored a pair of runs. Frazier is having a big bounce-back season with a .278/.346/.516 batting line and 44 RBI to go along with his 17 bombs.
Jun 22 - 4:40 PM
