3B Todd Frazier, Mets agree on $17M, 2-year deal

3B Todd Frazier, Mets agree on $17M, 2-year deal

According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, Frazier is signing with the Mets for two years and $17 million, ending speculation on where he would end up.

Frazier, who hit.213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBIs previous year, doesn't provide the statistical splash that a Mike Moustakas would, but it long appeared that the Mets weren't seriously in the running for that big-ticket player.

Though Frazier's.213/.344/.428 batting line was hardly a knockout, his 27 homers and 83 walks pushed his OPS+ to 105, which ranked 21st of the 31 third baseman who made 300 plate appearances a year ago. He's pretty much a swing for the fences guy at this point in his career.

Today is Bell Let's Talk Day
Instead, the campaign highlights everyday people who successfully manage their lives despite a mental health diagnosis. Early intervention is vital and you need to be able to talk to do that".

Frazier, who was acquired by the New York Yankees in mid-July, will be making the move from the Bronx to Queens as the Mets look for some stability on the hot corner. It likely won't be enough to contend in the NL East, but the team is definitely remaining proactive. In what's been a slow market this winter, Frazier became the latest free agent to find a home.

Numerous biggest Major League Baseball free agents remain unsigned, but one got a deal on Monday. His addition will allow the Mets to move Asdrubal Cabrera to second base, where Cabrera is more comfortable. The Reds, who went into rebuilding mode soon after hosting the All-Star Game, dealt Frazier to the White Sox in December in a three-team, seven-player swap. Wright has no intention of retiring right now and is hopeful that he can play this season in some capacity. Two years after getting to the World Series, they faded to 70-92 for their worst record since 2009. The Mets also brought back infielder Jose Reyes with a one-year deal for $2 million.

Frazier is the big infield bat that the Amazins' have been seeking, and they hope that his trend of 4 straight +25 HR years continues into 2018. "On the other hand, you can't fully presume that he is", Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said last month.
