While Scott Rolen and Drew Stubbs were out with injuries, Reds rookie Todd Frazier was able to help fill both vacant positions at third base and in the outfield. Baker has been pleased with the all-around game of Frazier, who is batting .264 with 22 RBIs and seven home runs in 49 games this season. But with the returns of Rolen and Stubbs, who hit the game-winning home run on Tuesday, Frazier has been relegated to a mostly pinch-hitting role. Baker said Frazier will start on Wednesday, though, probably at third base. For the 26-year-old Frazier, he doesn't care where he plays, as long as he can help make a difference. "I've been in both roles before," he said. "I know what's expected of myself and what to do when certain situations come around. Right now, it's pinch-hitting again. I don't take anything for granted, and I will be ready to go like I've always been." Brewers: Greinke trade rumors increasing
As Greinke heads to the mound on Wednesday, many watching might be wondering if he'll have his Brewers uniform on much longer. Although the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline is more than a month away, Greinke's name is being brought up more and more as a potential trade piece for the Brewers. Greinke -- a free agent after the season -- is 8-2 with a 2.81 ERA in 15 starts this season. Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin has been quiet about any potential talks of an extension with Greinke since Giants ace Matt Cain signed a $127.5 million extension. He told FoxSports.com that he also has yet to talk with ownership or other organizations about any specific potential trades. "We've got to make a decision on what we're doing overall," he said to FoxSports.com. "We're hoping we can put a good week together. If we don't, we have to be prepared to go both ways. A lot more clubs are starting to call now. Clubs are calling on different players." Worth noting
After his 31st double of the season on Tuesday, Reds first baseman Joey Votto is on pace for a Major League-record 68 two-baggers. Tuesday marked the second four-game losing streak of the season for the Brewers. They have not lost five in a row this year.
