    Todd Frazier
    Since playing for Rutgers in 2007, Frazier has been quite successful in the professional ranks. Despite being drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 2004 amateur draft, Frazier chose to wait until 2007 to begin his career in the pros. Drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the first round, Frazier played in the minors for four years. In 2007, he was named a Baseball America Rookie All-Star. In 2008, he was named Florida State League Player of the Week twice, as well as a Baseball America High Class A All-Star. In 2009, Frazier was named a Southern League All Star in the mid-season as well as the post-season. Frazier was called up to Major League Baseball to play for the Cincinnati Reds in 2011, after being listed as the ninth-best prospect in Major League Baseball. During his first year on the Reds, Frazier was named a NL Rookie of the Month, as well as the MLB Players’ Choice NL Outstanding Rookie. He has hit 15 homers this season as a third baseman.
