Bats: R, Throws: R

Todd went 1-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Whitesox. It was his only hit in 8 AB. He wraps up the series against Chicago, batting 3-for-12.

Fantasy Impact: His batting average is lingering aroung the .240, but that isnt to cause worry because he has never hit for average. Todd's value is in the power of his bat. He has 10 homeruns through 30 games this season. A pace that sticks him around 52 for the season if he continues to hit this well.

Todd Frazier went 0-for-4 on Sunday against the Braves. Two of those at bats ended in strikeouts. This is expected for a guy who is always looking for the big hit.

Fantasy Impact: Todd Frazier batted 2-for-18 this past series against the Atlanta Braves. It's not only this series that has seen Todd reeling in production. He is now 6-for-37 in his last 10 games. Four of the six hits were homeruns. Swinging for the fences are we? With his season average at a measley .215, it's hard not to say he's just swinging for the fences.

Frazier belted his fifth homerun of the season Sunday in the 5-2 loss to Chicago. The solo shot gave Frazier his 14th RBI of the season.

Fantasy Impact: The Reds have been struggling with RISP over the last three games, but Todd is still finding a way to garner points. He's gotten hits in eight of the last nine games, and with a fresh series against Milwaukee coming up, I like his chances of maintaining his momentum.

During the slugfest on Tuesday night in Milwaukee, Frazier went 2-for-4 with three runs and four RBI's. Frazier hit one of the game's three grand slams in the Reds 16-10 win over Milwaukee.

Fantasy Impact: Frazier has a five game hit streak after last nights contest although he's only batting .250 on the season. Look for his production to stay afloat as the Reds have woken up, posting 22 runs in the last two games. This could yield big points for Frazier in the Runs/RBI categories over the coming days.

Frazier went 1-for-2 Wednesday, along with a walk in the Reds' 3-0 spring loss to Arizona. Frazier is batting .280 on the spring along with four home runs and 12 RBI's.

Fantasy Impact: Frazier's average draft position is 47. He batted .273 in 2014 with 29 home runs and 80 RBI's. Frazier also had 20 stolen bases. If he stays healthy he should be able to produce similar numbers this season and his steals could be a nice bonus in leagues where he is eligible at first base.

Todd Frazier used to be a fastball reliant hitter. In 2014 that seemed to change when his SLG vs non-fastballs increased by over .100 points and his HR rates vs non-fastballs increased by over 13%, from 2013. (Source: Gammons Daily)

Fantasy Impact: Look for Todd Frazier to continue his ascent as an elite third baseman in the NL. These numbers indicate that his improved swing mechanics are effective and that he has the ability to improve from season-to-season. Expect increased power numbers in the area of 30 HR.
