Is Frazier this good? I don't really think so. In 2012 his BABIP is .339. His BABIP hasn't matched that in the minor leagues at any level he has reached 190 PA's. So Frazier is probably experiencing a bit of luck.
With that said, his power is absolutely real. If he settles in as a .270/.335/.500 guy, that is pretty darn good still.
Is there luck when driving balls to the gaps with regularity? I have seen every Frazier PA and there are rarely bloop or dribblers off his bat that go for hits. Is the luck theory that hitting it where they ain't isn't a skill?
