Mets reportedly sign Todd Frazier to a two-year, $17 million contract

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

Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic reported Monday night that third baseman Todd Frazier has agreed to terms with the New York Mets on a two-year deal worth $17 million.

The move likely means an opening day infield for the Mets consisting of Adrian Gonzalez, Asdrubal Cabrera, Amed Rosario and Frazier.

Frazier hit 27 home runs previous year, while driving in 76 RBI between the White Sox and Yankees with an OBP of.344.


The deal for Frazier comes just one week prior to the start of spring training in what has been a very slow free market all winter.

Selected by Cincinnati with the 34th-overall pick in the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft, Todd Frazier played the first five seasons of his major league career with the Reds before being traded to the White Sox in December 2015. Sluggers such as Frazier have been hit hardest as a result of the power surge since the trend has neutralized their biggest advantage over other players. Bruce and Frazier combined for 63 homers last season.

That's not to say Frazier is sitting in a similarly precarious position but that his addition may not make the same kind of impact to New York's offense it might have two or three years ago. They traded him to the Yankees in late July.
