New York Mets sign Todd Frazier to two year contract

However, a slow free agent market and little need for a third baseman throughout the league hurt Frazier. According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, New York has reached an agreement with veteran infielder Todd Frazier on a two-year, $17 million contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was still pending a physical.

Frazier, who hit.213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBIs past 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.

Ironically, this sanction actually provides an element of cover for the lender, which has found growth to be a challenge lately. She's following in the footsteps of her predecessor at the Fed, Ben Bernanke , who joined Brookings in 2014.

He hit.213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBI a year ago, a season where he was traded near the deadline from the White Sox to the Yankees.

Torreyes would be a candidate to play third if No. 1 prospect Gleyber Torres pulls a surprise and wins the open second base position instead of starting in Triple-A or if non-roster player Danny Espinosa, a very strong defender who hits for power, starts at second. Popular wherever he's been, the spirited Frazier has always drawn cheers from local fans when playing in the NY area. As a Red, Frazier posted a.257/.321/.463 slash line with 108 home runs and 324 RBIs. That speculation has included multiple teams throughout this offseason.

Frazier, who is from New Jersey, was received warmly when he returned to the New York City area.

"I get what the fan perception is". Two years after getting to the World Series, they faded to 70-92 for their worst record since 2009.

This season, he caught 102 passes for 1,393 yards and six touchdowns, earning his first Pro Bowl nod in the process. The annual NFL Honors were held again on Saturday, one night before the Super Bowl .

The addition of Frazier fills the void at third base the Mets have had the past three seasons with seven-time All-Star David Wright hampered by injuries. Four years later, he debuted in the big leagues. The Mets aren't expected to be contenders next season. "On the other hand, you can't fully presume that he is", Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said last month.
