New York Mets sign Todd Frazier to two year contract

The Mets lineup figures to be significantly deeper and more powerful with this signing and gives NY a more capable bench offensively.

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 a year ago.

The New York Mets have signed free-agent third baseman Todd Frazier to a two-year, $17M deal.

Last month, responding to fans' criticism, Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon defended the team's offseason spending and said more moves were likely.

Frazier, a welcome midseason acquisition for the Yankees previous year, will play third base, filling a hole that has always been vacated by an ailing David Wright and temporarily occupied by Asdrubal Cabrera, a natural shortstop. Traded from the Chicago White Sox to the Yankees last July, Frazier loved playing close to home and loved being on a club loaded with young talent that just missed getting to the World Series. In what's been a slow market this winter, Frazier became the latest free agent to find a home.

The Mets are also rumored to be going after Alex Cobb and Lance Lynn if their prices come down, and have repeatedly claimed to have tried for top targets after other teams already inked them.

Frazier brings another power bat to a potent Mets' lineup.

Numerous biggest Major League Baseball free agents remain unsigned, but one got a deal on Monday. As Frazier circled the bases, the fan showed his displeasure by giving him a thumbs down. 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.

Wright is a seven-time All-Star and is guaranteed $47 million by the Mets over the next three seasons.
