Description: Reds third baseman Todd Frazier blasted a pair of jacks Thursday in a loss to St. Louis.
Insight: It's Frazier's fourth career multi-home run game. He's looking to rebound from a disappointing 2013 campaign (.234 AVG in 531 at bats).

Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier is 3-for-9 (.333) with a pair of solo shots against Pirates left-hander Francisco Liriano.
Insight: Frazier was a bit of a disappointment to fantasy owners after a solid 2012 season (.273, 19 HR, 67 RBI, .829 OPS). In 109 more at-bats this season he hit the same number of homers, knocked in just six more runs, saw his batting average drop 39 points and his OPS 108 points. We like this matchup, however.
 
9/21/2013 4:07:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier won't compete in Saturday night's contest versus Pittsburgh.
Insight: His .100 career average against Pirates righthander A.J. Burnett could have something to do with his absence. Jack Hannahan (.224, 1 HR, 14 RBI) is filling in at third base.

Description: Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is a career .357 hitter (5for-14) with a pair of home runs and a 1.256 OPS versus Cubs right-hander Jeff Samardzija.
Insight: Frazier was horrible in August (.180, .585 OPS), but has bounced back in September batting .314 with an .857 OPS. This favorable matchup should keep him in the zone.
 
Hot9/9/2013 1:33:00 PM
Description: Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is a career .429 hitter (6-for-140 with a pair of home runs and a 1.357 OPS versus Cubs left-hander Travis Wood.

Hot9/5/2013 10:35:00 PM
Description: Reds third baseman Todd Frazier ended a 13-game homerless drought by going deep twice Thursday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Thursday was Frazier's first multi-homer game since April 5th. He's eight for his last 16 after going 3-for-24 in his previous six outings.
 
Cold9/2/2013 10:48:00 AM
Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier has been ice cold over his last six games (3-for-24) and Monday's encounter with Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright probably won't improve his predicament.
Insight: The breakout year we were all expecting for Frazier in 2013 just hasn't happened. In fact, he's actually taken a step back in his second year in the bigs (.228, 13 HR, 60 RBI in 126 games). He's hitting .154 against Wainwright and shouldn't be started in any fantasy leagues on Labor Day.

Description: Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is a career .500 hitter (6-for-12) with two home runs and a 1.533 OPS versus Cubs starter Travis Wood.
Insight: Frazier is batting just .232 with 10 homers and 49 RBI - well down from last year when he posted a .273 average with 19 HR and 67 RBI in just 128 games. This could be a rare matchup to take advantage of.
 
8/3/2013 6:58:00 PM

6/18/2013 10:52:00 AM
Description: It's a small sample size, but it is worth mentioning that Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is 4-for-5 with two doubles, a triple, a homer and three RBI against Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton.
Insight: Morton will start Tuesday against the Reds, so make sure Frazier is in your fantasy lineup.
 
6/16/2013 11:31:00 AM
Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier will get Sunday's game off while Jack Hannahan handles the hot corner.
Insight: Frazier is hitting just .244 with eight homers and 36 RBI this season. He put up an .858 OPS with six homers in 124 at-bats against left-handed pitching last season but has gone just 14-for-65 (.215) with a .703 OPS against southpaws this year.

Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier is 5-for-10 with a home run and five RBI against Chicago starter Travis Wood.
Insight: Frazier is not yet hitting at last year's pace with a .246 batting average and a .754 OPS, but that should come back to him soon.
 
5/22/2013 12:59:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier is not in the starting lineup Wednesday's against the Mets.
Insight: It looks like Frazier is just getting a day off. He's not yet hitting at last year's pace with a .231 batting average and a .715 OPS, but that should come back to him soon.
 
5/7/2013 6:03:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Braves.
Insight: It looks like Frazier is just getting a day off. Jack Hannahan is starting at the hot corner and batting seventh, with Xavier Paul moving up to sixth in the order.
 
4/18/2013 10:21:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a homer, two RBIs, a walk and three runs scored Thursday against the Marlins.
Insight: Frazier was the driving force behind an 11-1 victory. He came into Thursday's game in a 3-for-29 slump, but he has homered in two straight games and now has five on the year.
 
Hot4/6/2013 5:55:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier had his third straight multi-hit game Saturday against the Nationals.
Insight: He went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBIs, giving him a three-day total of nine hits in 13 at-bats, two doubles, three homers and seven RBIs.
 
Hot4/5/2013 10:49:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier exploded for four hits Friday in a 15-0 rout of Washington.
Insight: Two of those hits were home runs, giving him three dingers in his last two games. Frazier might have been the N.L.'s Rookie of the Year a season ago if not for a certain prodigy by the name of Bryce Harper. Frazier could be a 30 HR/100 RBI threat if he keeps this up.
 
4/4/2013 7:16:00 PM
Description: Reds third baseman Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a solo homer Thursday against the Angels.
Insight: Frazier blasted 19 homers in 422 at-bats last season and no longer has to worry about losing at-bats to Scott Rolen.

Description: Reds third baseman Todd Frazier hit his first home run of September Thursday against the Brewers.
Insight: Frazier came in hitting .197 with zero jacks this month after belting six homers with a .330 average in August. The homer came in the ninth inning of a 1-0 game off Brewers closer John Axford.
 
9/26/2012 7:00:00 PM
Description: Reds third baseman Todd Frazier is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.
Insight: The Reds have already clinched the division so Frazier (.279, 18 HR, 64 RBI) and the rest of the regulars probably won't see as much playing time as usual over the next week. Scott Rolen (.242, 7 HR, 37 RBI) will get the start at third tonight for Cincinnati.
