What Todd Frazier signing with Mets means for Yankees

Free agent third baseman and Yankees fan favorite Todd Frazier will be taking his talents, and his thumbs, to Flushing.

The New York Mets and Todd Frazier agreed to a two-year deal worth $17 million, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

The person spoke Monday night on condition of anonymity because the deal was still pending a physical. Between the White Sox and Yankees last season, Frazier hit.213 but posted a career-high.344 on-base percentage along with 27 home runs and 76 R.B.I.

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.

Todd Frazier is staying in NY - just not with the same team.

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. "It's not something that's lost on any of us", Wilpon said.

Frazier turns 32 next week.

The 2017 season was the third year in a row that the Mets belatedly cobbled together a solution at third base, as Wright played a combined total of just 75 games in 2015-16. The Mets also brought back infielder Jose Reyes with a one-year deal for $2 million. The move was a homecoming for the slugging third baseman, who grew up in Toms River, New Jersey, where he led the Toms River East American team to victory in the 1998 Little League World Series; in celebration of their championship, the team was introduced at Yankee Stadium before the national anthem, for which Frazier stood next to his pinstriped shortstop counterpart, Derek Jeter. At the start of the off-season, the Mets' payroll was expected to drop, angering some fans.
