I know this is a very prospect-oriented site, most message boards are, fans love the home-grown young players. It's understandable.
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.
