|Frazier's bid to become the team's first NL ROY|
since 1999 came up short on Monday
Frazier received three first-place votes, seven second-place votes, and nine third-place votes to record a total of 45 points. The voting was determined by 32 ballots cast by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA). John Erardi (Cinncinati Enquirer), Kevin Cooney (Bucks County Courier Times), and Chris Jenkins (U-T San Diego) were the lone writers to give first-place nods to Frazier.
The New Jersey native proved to be a valuable asset for the NL Central Champs in 2012. In 128 games, the right-handed slugger sported a slash line of .273/.331/.498 with 19 homers, 67 RBI, 26 doubles, and 55 runs scored. He also displayed a great deal of versatility as he made defensive appearances at multiple positions including third base, first base, left field, and right field.
Here is a complete breakdown of the voting.
