But Todd Frazier has hit .230 with a .705 OPS and a below .390 SLG -- as a power hitter -- this year. I wouldn't make a lot of plans built around him as a regular until he snaps back offensively.
I agree, that line as it stands isn't acceptable for a 3B. Which is why iin this alternate, post-BP world I would look to see if he could play a middle infield position where his bat would play better. Realistically, we are keeping BP and if there is an upgrade to be made at 3B, I make it.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
