RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

One of the shames of the 2014 season for the Reds is that they wasted the breakout seasons of Frazier and Devin Mesoraco. But was this season Frazier's peak, or one of a few more that we can expect in the future? Many of the underlying metrics suggest that this is his level -- his strikeout and walk rates have been remarkably stable the last three years, and his ISO was actually higher in 2012 when he first established himself as a regular player. The only stat that appears to be an outlier was his 20 stolen bases -- even in the minors he had never run that often. Assuming that Joey Votto is healthier this year, the Reds will finally leave Frazier at third base rather than move him all over the diamond, but you'll have the capability of slotting him at first if you'd like, which may be more of an advantage than in previous years, considering the state of the first base pool.

2014

Some regression was expected in Frazier's stat line in his second full season in the big leagues, but instead the pendulum fully swung from lucky to unlucky, as his BABIP dropped from .320 down to .271. But bad luck can't fully explain Frazier's drop-off, as he continued to have a poor contact rate (76%) and his ISO dropped from .225 down to .173. To contend in 2014, the Reds need more from their right-handed hitters, and Frazier in particular. He may never exceed his 2012 rate stats, but he needs to approach them to be viable beyond this season.

2013

Frazier rode the extended playing time provided by injuries to Scott Rolen and Joey Votto to a second place finish in the NL Rookie of the Year voting, though a September fade (.181/.241/.264 in 72 at-bats) might have cost him the award. With Rolen likely to retire, Frazier is finally slated to have one position all to himself at third base. With a .320 BABIP and 76 percent contact rate last year, Frazier's .273 batting average is a likely candidate to decline in 2013, but that change could be counter-balanced, at least in terms of his fantasy value, by the increased playing time and the rise in counting stats that comes along with that. Frazier will be 27 in 2013, so this is pretty close to as good as it gets for him.

2012

While repeating Triple-A in 2011, Frazier made enough gains to at least give some hope that he could be a major league bench player, if not a regular. As with teammate Juan Francisco, Frazier has some power potential with a less-than-optimal batting eye. He's never going to be a plus defender, though it appears as if he might be able to hold his own at third base. What might end up happening is that he'll platoon with Francisco at third base while occasionally filling in elsewhere. That scenario might not kick in until the second half of 2012 if not the start of 2013, with Scott Rolen under contract for another season.

2011

Frazier took a step back last year at Triple-A Louisville, nearly doubling his strikeout rate while dropping in batting average by 40-plus points. He regressed enough to the point that the Reds didn't make him one of their September callups, instead choosing to keep him off the 40-man roster. Frazier's other problem is that he's without a position, having washed out at shortstop and second already. He split time between left field, third base and first base with Louisville last season, and probably projects best as an outfielder, where his value is limited. A return engagement in Louisville seems in the cards for Frazier.

2010

Though Frazier is considered by many to be the Reds' top prospect, his long-term value is muted by a lack of positional value. Once drafted as a shortstop, Frazier has played third, left field and some second base. They worked with him on the latter position this offseason, only to state that he'll open 2010 as Triple-A Louisville's left fielder. As a middle infielder, he would be a plus-bat, but as a corner outfielder he's only average.

2009

A first-round supplemental pick in 2007, Frazier has hit at every professional level, including the Hawaii Winter League (.295/.375/.547) in 2008. The bigger issue for Frazier is what position he'll end up playing - most scouts and analysts suggest that he won't be able to stick at shortstop - third base or a corner outfield spot is more likely.
