CINCINNATI Todd Frazier led the Cincinnati Reds in everything during spring training but turning out the ball park lights and emptying the clubhouse trash cans.
If they had asked, he could have done that, too. And with a smile. Anything to make the team.
Frazier hit the most home runs (five), drove in the most runs (15), amassed the most total bases (38) and scored the most runs (12).
Maybe he should have turned out all the lights and emptied all the trash cans because what he did on the field wasn't enough.
The 26-year-old supplemental first round pick in 2007 was still with the club on the last day of spring training, but on that last day when the rest of the team packed for Cincinnati Frazier packed for Louisville to join the Class AAA Bats.
What's a guy have to do? What does a guy have to do to earn his oats with the big club?
He was a victim of two circumstances he has options left and the team needed a left handed bat, Willie Harris. Frazier hits right handed.
