You talking about the same Todd Frazier who had a .654 OPS against right handers in the majors, 95 PAs, for the Reds last season?
Why is he a good choice against Dempster?
I assume it is based on minor league numbers.
Harris and Valdez are veterans who should get a chance to play once in awhile. Nothing wrong with it.
Frazier is a RedsZone darling. I hope he succeeds, but I don't see the compelling need to play him against Dempster. Don't see the need for this particular game.
Now, if somebody wants to give Todd an extended trial at third base for a month or two, then I could see him playing in a game like this. I just don't see the matchup with Dempster.
