Reds, Todd Frazier agree to 2-year, $12 million deal
Sunday February 8th, 2015

The Cincinnati Reds agreed to terms Sunday with third baseman Todd Frazier on a $12 million contract that avoids the arbitration process for both parties and keeps the All-Star in the Queen City for another two years. 

Frazier is due to make $4.5 million in 2015 and $7.5 million in 2016. He was seeking $5.7 million in arbitration, and Cincinnati offered $3.9 million in return, according to ESPN.

The infielder hit .273 with 29 home runs and 80 RBI in 2014, earning him All-Star honors for the first time in his career. 

The only remaining Reds' free agent scheduled for an arbitration hearing is hard-throwing reliever Aroldis Chapman.
