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

"He fits in well in the NY market".

This Toms River son will stay in the Big Apple.

A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Monday night that Frazier and the Mets had agreed on a two-year contract for $17 million.

He replaced Chase Headley at third base as the Yankees liked Frazier's defense over Headley's. As is customary at this point in the reporting/signing process, the deal is pending a physical.

A major league talent evaluator termed Frazier an "average" defender at third base who should bring a respectable on-base percentage and power to the lineup, with a low batting average.

Frazier, 31, was traded to the Yankees last season by the White Sox and indicated interest in remaining in NY. On days Wright plays, the Mets could theoretically push Frazier to first base in place of either Adrian Gonzalez or Dominic Smith.


The best bet on the Mets now is that they're pretty much done making big moves this offseason. It's certainly something that benefits the Mets - they still could sign a middle infielder or add bullpen help - but has raised the hackles of agents and players.

Frazier turns 32 next week.

The price at which NY was able to acquire Frazier is a huge factor in this deal, as his surprisingly cheap contract will potentially allow the Mets to make additional moves in free agency before the beginning of the year.

The union between the Mets and Frazier hardly is a surprising one. Frazier has hit at least 25 home runs in each of the last four seasons.He hit a career-high 40 home runs and 98 RBI in 2016 with the White Sox. With Yoenis Cespedes, Jay Bruce and the eventual return of Michael Conforto, the Mets outfield is solid. During the Yankees' postseason run to the ACLS, Frazier hit.186 with one home run and five runs batted in.

Frazier is just a few years removed from back-to-back all-star appearances in 2014 and 2015 while with the Reds.

Frazier is a graduate of Toms River South.
