Todd Frazier 1B/3B CIN 3 Days

Frazier hit a long homer Sunday against the Braves as part of a 2-for-4 day. The homer was just his third in 33 games since the All-Star break.

The vast majority of Frazier's good work continues to happen at home. He's hit 16 of his 22 homers in Great American Ballpark, and he's slugging .529 there as opposed to .392 on the road. The Reds will split their six games in the upcoming week between home and in Pittsburgh.

Frazier slugged his 21st home run of the year, while going 2-for-3 at the plate with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

Frazier continues to have a break-out year and has been one of the few constants in the Reds' lineup this season. Frazier now owns a .284/.344/.465 slash line in 469 at-bats this year.

Frazier (back) will return to the Reds' lineup Monday, batting third and playing third base, the Cincinnati Enquirer's C. Trent Rosecrans reports.

He had missed the past four games with a back injury, but will return a much needed presence to the middle of the Reds' lineup this week, starting with the series in St. Louis.

Frazier (back) is not in the lineup for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Rockies.

The sore back prevented Frazier from playing in either game Sunday and has now kept him out of four straight games. Ramon Santiago will man the hot corner in Frazier's place Sunday night.

Frazier (back) is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader.

Frazier is able to swing a bat, but the current lower back soreness he's been experiencing has made it difficult to run the bases. He hasn't yet been ruled out for the second leg of the doubleheader, but Kristopher Negron will man the hot corner in the first.

Frazier (back) tested his injury by taking a few swings in batting practice, but still was unable to run.

As such, Frazier's availability for Sunday's doubleheader is very much in question.

Frazier is out of the lineup Saturday due to his lower back injury, Mark Sheldon of reports.

This is the second-straight game that Frazier will miss with the lower back injury that he sustained in Thursday's game. In his absence, Kevin Negron will play third while Skip Schumaker covers second.

Frazier is out of the lineup Friday due to lower back soreness, Mark Sheldon of reports.

Frazier reportedly tweaked his back during his second at-bat of Thursday's game, which ended in a groundout to first base. He's hoping to return to the lineup Saturday, but Ramon Santiago will make at least one start at the hot corner in Frazier's absence.

Frazier is out of the Reds' lineup Friday against the Rockies, Mark Sheldon of reports.

Frazier will be afforded his first rest since July 9, with Ramon Santiago taking over at the hot corner in the opener against Colorado. The 28-year-old Frazier has hit just one home run since the All-Star break, but he's still hitting for average and has been adamant that his participation in the Home Run Derby has not affected his swing.

Frazier, who has just one homer since the All-Star break, said that participating in the Home Run Derby hasn't affected his swing. "I'm getting a lot of singles [since the All-Star break], but at the same time, I'm producing," Frazier said. "They come in spurts -- when I hit home runs, usually I get three or four in a week. It happened last year for a month or two as well, and what has it been, three weeks or so since my last one? But that's the way it goes."

Given how the rest of the lineup generally has struggled, chances are that Frazier is also getting fewer pitches to hit as well. To that end, it can't hurt that Jay Bruce has homered twice this week and Devin Mesoraco homered twice on Sunday.
