Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored and two stolen bases in the Reds 7-2 win over the Cubs on Thursday.

What a season so far for Frazier. After Thursday's performance, he now has 22 home runs and 19 steals. Along with Billy Hamilton, he has been a bright spot for a team that has struggled for most of the season. His value has certainly increased headed into the offseason.

Zack Cosart went 3-for-4 with a double, three RBI, a run scored and two stolen bases in the Reds 7-2 win over the Cubs on Thursday.

This would be classfied as a monster fantasy day for most players, but especially the light hitting, low average Zack Cozart. He will have one of these type of days on occasion, but his real value lies in the field. He should only be owned in NL-Only leagues at this point.

Billy Hamilton went 2-for-2 with a double, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Reds 7-2 win over the Cubs on Thursday.

This has truly been a great season for Hamilton up to this point. Obviously he isn't going to steal 100 bases this season, but he's been above average on every level and will most certainly vault up draft boards next spring. He has held his own in his first full season and fantasy owners have to be thrilled about that.

Dylan Axelrod threw five shutout innings as he allowed just two hits while walking three and striking out eight in the Reds 7-2 win over the Cubs on Thursday.

The important thing to look at here is that Axelrod struck out eight Cubs on Thursday afternoon. This was his second solid performance in as many tries and he has likely bought himself at least another start. If he continues to pitch well, he could be an asset in NL-Only leagues over the final month.

Reds optioned Daniel Corcino to Triple-A Louisville.

Corcino is being sent down to make room for Dylan Axelrod. He'll likely be back once rosters expand in September, but he still won't have any fantasy value for you.

Reds recalled Dylan Axelrod from Triple-A Louisville.

As expected, Axelrod gets the call-up to start against the Cubs on Thursday. He pitched well during his last start, allowing just two runs through six innings with seven strikeouts while pitching against the Rockies in Coors Field. This one should prove to be a much easier outing.

Skip Schumaker went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI, and a run scored in the Reds victory over the Cubs on Wednesday.

Schumaker made the most of his start on Wednesday, which was just his fourth in the team's last 10 games, as he is now sitting on a .240 average with two home runs and 21 RBI through 229 at-bats. Unless he picks up the pace and gains a full-time role, there is no reason he should be a fantasy consideration down the stretch.

Billy Hamilton went 2-for-5 with a run scored and stole his 50th base of the season for the Reds on Wednesday. 

After going 0-for-10 over his last three games, Hamilton got himself back on track Wednesday night as he continues to have a respectable season in his first full year in the big leagues. Despite sitting on 50 stolen bases, Hamilton has struggled to get on base over the course of the year, sitting on a .297 on-base percentage while taking only 23 walks in just under 500 at-bats. Until he learns to be more selective at the plate he will fall short of reaching his full potential, but at the age of 23, there is still plenty of time for him to improve.

Aroldis Chapman gave up a walk and a hit but struck out two batters to get his 28th save of the season for the Reds on Wednesday against the Cubs. 

Since surrendering four runs back on August 17, Chapman has been on top of his game, allowing just three base runners over his last five innings of work while striking out 11 in that stretch. Having now converted 28 of his first 30 save chances, Chapman remains one of the best closers to won in all of baseball, especially when owning a 85:19 K:BB rate over 43.1 innings. Whoever suggested Chapman wouldn't be the same after suffering a horrific head injury is certainly kicking themselves at this point.
