Latest Update Alfredo Simon allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk with two strikeouts in a no decision against the Cardinals on Tuesday. Wed Aug, 20, 12:44 AM
Is a good hitter with the ability to knock in runs, hit home runs and draw walks. Has worked hard to become a regular at the hot corner.
Flaws: : Strikes out way too much and lacks consistency as a hitter for batting average, which limits his overall production numbers to some extent.
It looks like we can officially put an end to the power scare as Frazier finally went yard for the first time since July 20, almost a full month's worth of games. He's been having some lower back issues lately, so perhaps that contributed to the power outage. He also has ramped up his power levels this year, so the general wear and tear could also be an issue. Whatever the case may be, the bottom line is that he is hopefully on his way back right now and can offer you up some fantastic power totals moving forward.Analyst: Howard Bender
Hopefully this is all we hear of the back issue and Frazier goes back to mashing like he did through the first half. He's back at third base Mondday and is batting third in the lineup.Get him active.Analyst: Howard Bender
Frazier sat out Saturday with tightness in his back, so he'll continue to get some rest here, for at least the first game of Sunday's doubleheader. His status for the second game is not yet known. In the meantime, Kristopher Negron will take care of the work at third base for the opener.Analyst: Howard Bender
