Taken in the 2007 MLB Draft, the Cincinnati Reds tabbed Frazier as the third baseman of the future with regular playing time in 2013. Following up on a season in which he finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting, Frazier posted a .234 batting average but hit 19 bombs and drove in 73 runs.

2014 and 2015 sparked back to back All-Star selections with an NL-leading 619 at-bats in the latter season. Between the two years, Frazier hit 64 home runs and knocked in 169 runs. After 2015, he was traded to the Chicago White Sox and has also spent time with the Yankees and Mets.

Most recently, Frazier hit .251 with 21 home runs and 67 RBI in 2019. Although he’s 34 now, Frazier has accumulated a 24.5 WAR throughout his nine-year big league career.
