Chicago White Sox - 97% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

Todd Frazier homered for the second consecutive game on Tuesday, launching a two-run shot in a 2-for-4 effort. He also scored twice during the White Sox win over the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact: It's a promising start to the second half for Frazier. He's been producing HRs throughout the season, but his average has been disappointing. His advanced stats showed that there could be positive regression coming, but at least you know you're getting power from Frazier moving forward.

Todd Frazier could not defend his Home Derby crown, falling victim to Giancarlo Stanton's barrage, but has a .303 batting average in July. Considering that he has a .213 batting average for the season, July is a great month for Frazier, who has five extra-base hits, six RBI, and six runs scored this month. He has a .782 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: A fantasy owner is not buying Frazier for his batting average, as he fought off the Mendoza Line for most of the first half, but his 25 home runs and 57 RBI put him on pace for a 40 home run, 100 RBI season. Frazier had home runs in two of his last three games before the break and is second in the American League in home runs.

Todd Frazier finished 1-for-4 with a run scored, two RBI, and his 24th home run of the season in the White Sox' 11-8 loss to Atlanta. Frazier is 8-for-26 with five runs scored, three RBI, and three extra-base hits over the last seven days. He has a .774 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: Frazier, who only has a .212 batting average this season, has hits in eight of his last ten games and has scored eight runs in his last 10 games. This mini-hitting streak has significantly boosted Frazier's value, as he is also on pace for 45 home runs this season.

Todd Frazier finished 3-for-3 with two doubles, two walks, two runs scored, and an RBI against the Yankees on Monday. Frazier is 9-for-28 over the last seven days with seven runs scored, five extra-base hits, and three RBI. He has a .776 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: Frazier has scored 49 runs, has 52 RBI, and is second in the American League with 23 home runs, but his .212 batting average is a huge issue for fantasy owners. Even though he has been an issue for fantasy owners in the way of batting average, he does have a six-game hitting streak and hits in eight of 10 games.

Todd Frazier homers in win

Todd Frazier hit his 22nd home run of the season in Wednesday's win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Frazier also doubled in the victory, capping a nice night for the 3B. While he continues to be among the league leaders in home runs, June has been Frazier's worst month of the season. He's carried a very low BABIP through the season, which would indicate positive regression is approaching, but owners have yet to see that.

Todd Frazier homers in win

Todd Frazier hit his 20th home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox. Frazier finished 1-for-3 with two strikeouts and a walk.

Fantasy Impact: The good has certainly come with the bad with Frazier this season. While he's hit 20 HRs, he's also batting .200 on the season with a below-average on-base percentage. He continues to carry a very low BABIP, which would be a sign of potential positive regression, but he's yet to show that to this point.

 

Category: , Game Recaps


Frazier is having a bittersweet season so far. The positive is that he has 19 HR, 44 RBI, and 39 runs scored. The downside is that he is batting .205 with an OBP of .304.

Fantasy Impact: Seasonal owners, especially in roto-style, can work around the bad by adding players with high averages and just starting him everyday to catch the good with the bad. He is more problematic for DFS players as he is not consistent and gives them many bad days. The bright side is that his career average is .252 so there is room to think it will get somewhat better.

 

After starting the season 23-10, the White Sox have gone 6-20 in their last 26 games and have fallen one game below .500. They were destroyed by the Nationals on Wednesday night, 11-1.

Fantasy Impact: If there's someone to blame for the White Sox's collapse, it isn't Todd Frazier. Frazier is often the lone source of offense, as he has already hit 19 home runs this season.

Fantasy Impact: The team is off Thursday, so it doesn't seem to be in question whether or no Frazier will be available Friday. After his slow start to the season, Frazier has turned things around of late. He had been a big buy-low candidate considering his low BABIP, and that window may have closed now that he appears to be back on track.

Fantasy Impact: Frazier has failed to get a hit in each of his last three games. He's been very streaky this season. Frazier isn't a player that is going to have a great batting average.

Frazier is going from one good hitters park to another one in Chicago. The 29-year-old Frazier should be one of the top third baseman selected in this year's fantasy drafts.
