Mets Reach Deal With Former Yankees Third Baseman Todd Frazier

Posted February 06, 2018

Todd Frazier is staying in NY - just not with the same team.

The 31-year-old third baseman hit a combined.213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBI with the Yankees and White Sox last season. He's pretty much a swing for the fences guy at this point in his career.

Frazier, who turns 32 on February 12, had hinted on Twitter Sunday the Mets were his likely destination. It likely won't be enough to contend in the NL East, but the team is definitely remaining proactive. In the final months of last season, the Mets lost Curtis Granderson, Neil Walker and Bruce, all clubhouse leaders; add to that Wright's longtime absence, and the need for a veteran voice was clear. This signing also gives Asdrubal Cabrera what he's wanted, which is the chance to play second base rather than third.

He said the dream of peace and prosperity in the region will remain elusive without resolving the Kashmir dispute. Kashmiris considered themselves Pakistani and wanted to live under the Pakistani flag, he added.

By comparison Frazier had a.960 fielding percentage at third with the White Sox and Yankees, and for his career he has a.965 fielding percentage at the position.

Sandy Alderson previously said while he has had some "focus" on improving the infield, the team was thinking "expansively" this offseason.

In an unusually depressed free agent market, the Mets have spent $72.5 million this winter on five players.

"I get what the fan perception is". "I understand the fan base's frustration and we have the same frustration". Two years after getting to the World Series, they faded to 70-92 for their worst record since 2009.

The Yankees are believed to be about $24 million below the threshold now and they want to open the season at least $10 million under so that they can add salary in a trade or two. Jose Reyes would be the utility infielder.

The Mets still have captain David Wright on the roster, but the longtime third baseman's future is in doubt after injuries and a chronic back condition limited him to 75 regular-season games over the last three years. Both of whom would play big roles in their bullpen. The Mets aren't expected to be contenders next season.
