Todd Frazier staying close to home, signs 2-year deal with Mets


The New Jersey native was said to be interested in remaining in NY.

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 hit.217 with 27 home runs and 76 RBis in 147 games combined for the White Sox and Yankees.

A native of Toms River, New Jersey, Frazier also tweeted playing for the Yankees was a "dream come true" when the Chicago White Sox sent him to the Big Apple in July.

The free-agent market just got a little bit slimmer for teams in the hunt for a third baseman.


The Mets' infield seems set with Frazier at 3rd base, 22 year-old phenom Amed Rosario at shortstop, Asdrubal Cabrera at 2nd base, and 14-year veteran Adrian Gonzalez at 1st base.

Frazier joins Jay Bruce as two major cogs to be added to the Mets' lineup this winter.

The fact hitters cleared the fences at a historic rate in 2017 somewhat devalues the power Frazier provides. During the Yankees' postseason run to the ACLS, Frazier hit.186 with one home run and five runs batted in.

The COO of the Mets Jeff Wilpon defended the offseason spending by the team last month after being criticized by fans, but saying the team was likely to make more moves before the season started.
