Florida State League
Todd Frazier, Sarasota
.421 (8-19), 6 R, 3 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 0 BB, 1 SO, 0 SB, .737 SLG
Frazier's season began in the Midwest League, but it wasn't long before the Cincinnati Reds decided they had failed to challenge him. Frazier hit .321 with a .598 slugging percentage in 30 games with Dayton, while juggling four positions. As expected, the move up to the Florida State League has been more trying on Frazier, who has seen struggles at the plate in terms of strikeout propensity, if only that. However, with his recent performance shaping up to be like his early-season success, Frazier has his average up to .285. The infielder is hitting .372 against southpaws with Sarasota, after hitting .414 against the lefties in the Midwest League.
