ATLANTA -- Following a precautionary day off to rest a tight left groin, Reds third baseman Todd Frazier was back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale vs. the Braves.
Frazier was lifted in the fifth inning of Friday's 5-4 loss with the tightness, which surfaced in the second inning while he was running out a leadoff double.
"It helped out a lot," Frazier said of having Saturday off. "I was ready to pinch-hit there at the end but never had the opportunity. It felt great to get some good treatment. I'm ready to go."
Frazier had no concerns about exerting himself or aggravating the injury, especially from running and possibly trying to take an extra base if needed.
"I think everything will be good," Frazier said. "If I'm playing, I'm going to give it 100 percent. I don't see any signs of setback."
Reds manager Bryan Price removed Frazier on Friday but felt he could have kept playing, if needed. Neftali Soto started in Frazier's place on Saturday.
As for playing Frazier on Sunday, there were no worries.
"I don't think he's 100 percent. But he's certainly good enough to play," Price said. "We feel like there's a very low risk of making the situation worse by playing."
