Todd Frazier had a nice all-around game against the Cubs on Wednesday, finishing 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored.
The reigning Home Run Derby champ didn't smack any balls out of the yard, but with the pair of doubles he pushed his season total of two-baggers to 28. That mark is just one shy of his career-best for doubles in a season, set in 2013. With a .283/.336/.580 batting line, plus 26 homers, 63 RBI and nine steals, Frazier should at least be part of the MVP conversation. Jul 22 - 3:50 PM

Todd Frazier edged out Joc Pederson in the finals of the 2015 Home Run Derby on Monday.

He did so in thrilling fashion, tying Pederson 14-14 with 12 seconds left on the clock and then beating him on his first swing in bonus time. Frazier had a flair for the dramatic all night, as he also beat Prince Fielder in the first round and Josh Donaldson in the second round in the waning seconds. The hometown favorite was clearly inspired by the crowd at Great American Ball Park, going on home run binges as the fans went into a frenzy. The new timed, head-to-head bracket-style format was a big success for Major League Baseball.

Todd Frazier went 4-for-5 with two doubles in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

Frazier's two doubles gave him 24 for the season, a fantastic indication of just how well he's been hitting. For comparison's sake, Frazier's career-high for doubles was 29 in 2013. That number should be bypassed soon enough. From the wider angle, he's currently hitting .289/.348/.610 with 25 home runs, 54 RBI and eight steals.

The Reds are expected to be sellers at the trade deadline and have several pieces that should be very popular commodities. Frazier won't be one of them though. He's in the midst of an outstanding season, slashing .281/.341/.600 with 25 homers, 54 RBI and eight stolen bases.

The Reds managed just one extra-base hit in the entire contest and just one run, as the Brewers put up a rare beatdown to the tune of 12-1. Frazier's hit-less game does nothing to obscure what's been a great season to this point. The third baseman is currently slashing .281/.341/.600 with 25 homers, 54 RBI, 54 runs scored and eight steals.

24 homers. That's five more than he hit in 150 games in 2013. He did step it up to 29 last year, but it looks like he'll blow right past that this season. He's hit .306 with eight homers and 10 doubles in June.

Thus continues the season of one of baseball's best fantasy performers to date. Frazier has 23 home runs, 48 RBI, eight stolen bases, and a .292/.356/.636 triple-slash line.

Todd Frazier is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Tigers.

Todd Frazier had a solo homer in the fourth and a grand slam in the 13th as the Reds beat the Tigers 8-4 on Wednesday.

Frazier also homered twice on Tuesday, and he now has 22 homers on the season, leaving him just seven shy of his total from his fine 2014 season. Before the slam, each of his last eight and 16 of his 21 homers on the season had been solo shots. Of course, all he really needed was the one run with that last one, but the slam was surely more fun. It was the second of his career.

Frazier finished 2-for-4 on the evening. His first home run tied the game at 1-1 in the fifth. His second broke a 2-2 tie in the seventh. Frazier crosses the 20-homer plateau for the second time in his career and seems well on his way to surpassing his career-high of 29 set last season. The slugger is hitting .293/.359/.622 with 41 RBI and eight stolen bases as well.
