Fun with Todd Frazier facts! He hit his 22nd home run and is on pace for 46. He's also hitting .202 with just six doubles. Only one player -- Mark Reynolds -- has hit 30-plus HRs while batting under .200. And the fewest doubles for a 40-homer guy was Harmon Killebrew's 11. It's shaping up as an all-time oddball season for Frazier.
