In a three-team trade, Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier has been dealt to the Chicago White Sox. In return, the Reds will have the rights to Jose Peraza, Brandon Dixon, and Scott Schebler, while the Los Angeles Dodgers get Trayce Thompson, Micah Johnson, and Frankie Montas.
Although Frazier had a tremendously productive season in 2015, hitting .255 BA, 35 HRs, and 89 RBIs, the Reds have been floating his name on the market throughout the offseason, as the team looks to unload some contracts during their rebuilding.
After this upcoming season, Frazier is set to become an unrestricted free agent, as his $8.25 million contract will expire in 2017. Although there may be some shifting in the infield with Frazier's arrival, he will make an instant impact on the White Sox's lineup that has been eager to add a big bat this offseason.
Todd Frazier has 64 HR over the last 2 seasons, tied with Giancarlo Stanton for most among NL players in that time.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 16, 2015
