  • Mets pull Todd Frazier out of free agency for $17M

Frazier began his major league career in Cincinnati, where he became a two-time National League All-Star. However, he would set a career-low in hitting with a.225 average in a 158 games. In 2017, he hit just.207 in 81 games with the White Sox.

The union between the Mets and Frazier hardly is a surprising one.

Photo Todd Frazier hit.213 with 27 home runs with the White Sox and Yankees last season. He went 7-for-24 in the ALCS against the future World Series-winning Astros with a home run and four RBI, and had a regular season fielding percentage of.960 with 13 errors, which is above league average at least.

Free agent third baseman and Yankees fan favorite Todd Frazier will be taking his talents, and his thumbs, to Flushing. Wright has no intention of retiring right now and is hopeful that he can play this season in some capacity.

"I AM OFFICIALLY GOING TO THE SUPERBOWLLLLLL", the Rutgers University student said on her Facebook page Friday night. We don't have money for a ticket, ' her mom says. "If they would have went 0-16, I would still be their friends".

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. Frazier has 82 career starts at first base, so he has some experience at the position. His addition will allow the Mets to move Asdrubal Cabrera to second base, where Cabrera is more comfortable. But he has stated he would be more comfortable at second base, which makes the signing of Frazier a sound choice. In the final months of last season, the Mets lost Curtis Granderson, Neil Walker and Bruce, all clubhouse leaders; add to that Wright's longtime absence, and the need for a veteran voice was clear. He solidifies the team's infield and gives the Mets another power source in the middle of the lineup.
