Cincinnati Reds sign Todd Frazier, add two relievers

The Cincinnati Reds signed third baseman Todd Frazier to a two-year contract over the weekend as well as a pair of right-handed pitchers to bolster their bullpen.

The Reds gave Frazier a two-year contract worth $12 million, avoiding arbitration.

Frazier, who turns 29 on Thursday, will make $4.5 million plus a signing bonus this season and $7.5 million in 2016. He’s a .258 career hitter but made his All-Star debut in 2014. He batted .273 with a career-high 29 home runs which was tied for first in the majors for third baseman with former Oakland Athletic turned Toronto Blue Jay, Josh Donaldson.
