Mets agree to deal with third baseman Todd Frazier, sources say

Todd Frazier Joining the Mets

He replaced Chase Headley at third base as the Yankees liked Frazier's defense over Headley's. So, the ability to perform under the pressure of NY shouldn't be too much of a question. As a Red, Frazier posted a.257/.321/.463 slash line with 108 home runs and 324 RBIs.

Frazier has rarely hit for a high average, and he batted a career low (.213) in 2017. They'll have to let Cabrera know he's back to shortstop or the backup at third, something that caused him to request a trade last season. However, a slow free agent market and little need for a third baseman throughout the league hurt Frazier.

Frazier's power will fit in well with a Mets team that tied for first in the NL with 224 home runs last season.

Frazier, a native of Toms River, N.J., who will turn 32 next week, played a crucial role for the Yankees in the second half of last season after they acquired him from the Chicago White Sox in July. The Reds, who went into rebuilding mode soon after hosting the All-Star Game, dealt Frazier to the White Sox in December in a three-team, seven-player swap.

The Frazier signing hampers David Wright's latest comeback attempt.

Cabrera has publicly stated in the past his desire to play second base rather than third.

Though Frazier's.213/.344/.428 batting line was hardly a knockout, his 27 homers and 83 walks pushed his OPS+ to 105, which ranked 21st of the 31 third baseman who made 300 plate appearances past year. He will serve as a complement to the likes of Yoenis Cespdes, Michael Conforto, and Jay Bruce. At a price of $17 million over two years, Frazier could end up being a great addition for the Mets.
