Reds shopping Todd Frazier “heavily”

27 Comments

It’s probably going to be impossible for the Reds to move Aroldis Chapman at any point in the near future given the October domestic-assault incident that came to light on Monday night as the Dodgers were closing in on a blockbuster trade for the fireballing closer.

But the rebuild must go on — and will go on — this winter Cincinnati …

Frazier posted an .806 OPS with 35 home runs and 89 RBI in 157 games this past season for the Reds, earning his second straight National League All-Star nod. The 29-year-old third baseman is due just $7.5 million in 2016 and will have one more year of arbitration-eligibility in 2017 before he can hit free agency.

He’d make sense for any team with a hole at the hot corner.
