Mets, Todd Frazier agree to two-year deal

  • Mets' bargain signing of Todd Frazier reflects icy state of MLB free agency

The Mets made their long-awaited move to solidify their infield, and they did so with a familiar face in NY. Frazier hit 40 home runs in 2016 and 35 the year before.

Frazier agreed to a two-year, $17 million deal with the Mets on Monday night, according to multiple reports.

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.

Then in July of that season, Frazier's fortunes were about to change when the New York Yankees acquired the once-promising third baseman from the Chicago White Sox just after the All-Star break.


Frazier, who earned All-Star appearances in each of his final two seasons in Cincinnati, hit.257 with 108 home runs, 324 runs batted in and a.784 OPS as a member of the Reds.

According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, Frazier's deal includes no incentives and is without a no-trade clause, though Frazier would get a $500,000 bonus if the Mets made a decision to move him. Otherwise this might be the high water mark of their offseason. "I understand the fan base's frustration and we have the same frustration".

The veteran third baseman drew the ire of a Mets fan last season after hitting a home run against the Rays during a game played at Citi Field due to Hurricane Irma. The Mets also brought back infielder Jose Reyes with a one-year deal for $2 million. Frazier, known for his big, effusive personality, immediately had an impact in the clubhouse; he took on a leadership role, which is unusual for a player who arrived during the season in a trade. "On the other hand, you can't fully presume that he is", Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said last month.
