NASHVILLE – The Indians and Cincinnati Reds have been trading partners plenty of times in the past, and now there’s word that the Tribe and Cincy may once again do a dance for a deal that could help both teams.
Bob Nigthengale tweeted out that Cleveland and Cincinnati are in talks about Reds third basemen Todd Frazier.

The 29-year-old Fraizer can play both first and third, and is a right-handed bat, something the Indians are in need of. Last year Frazier launched 35 homers with 89 RBI in hitting .255 in 157 games for the Reds.
He also led the National League with 619 at-bats. He had a slugging percentage of .498 last year.
