More ink for Reds rookie Todd Frazier as Ben Lindbergh of Baseball Prospectus recently tabbed him as one of ten top prospects finally living up to their potential. It's probably a stretch to say that anyone around the Reds organization ever became frustrated with his development, but here's what Lindbergh had to say about him nevertheless: Frazier's greatest problem has been a lack of opportunity, not paltry production. With Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips and Scott Rolen arrayed around the Reds' infield, Frazier didn't get his first crack at the majors until last season, at age 25.
