Todd Frazier
Frazier is on pace for:
32 HR, 95 RBI, 45 2B, 95 R and an .848 OPS.
From 2012 to 2013 he declined in most categories: Dropping nearly 40 points in BA, 30 in OBP, 90 in SLG and 100 in OPS. This year he's bounced back and improved.
His K% is down, his extra-base hit % is up. He's also seen an increase in his line drive rate, pitches seen per plate appearance and % times swinging at the first pitch.

How MLB's elbow issue is mowing through young pitchers and has no solution.
