  • Mets Sign Todd Frazier to Two-Year Deal

His addition will allow the Mets to move Asdrubal Cabrera to second base, where Cabrera is more comfortable. So, the ability to perform under the pressure of NY shouldn't be too much of a question.

During his first full season with the White Sox in 2016, Frazier would set career-highs in home runs (40), runs batted in (98), and base-on-balls (64).

Frazier isn't exactly coming off the best season of his career.

The Yankees are believed to be about $24 million below the threshold now and they want to open the season at least $10 million under so that they can add salary in a trade or two.

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

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

By comparison Frazier had a.960 fielding percentage at third with the White Sox and Yankees, and for his career he has a.965 fielding percentage at the position.

While former star third baseman David Wright continues his comeback attempt from multiple surgeries, it's unclear when - or if - he'll be able to return.

It's a pay cut for Frazier, who earned $20.25 million over the past two seasons, continuing the trend this winter of depressed free-agent values. But he has stated he would be more comfortable at second base, which makes the signing of Frazier a sound choice.

In signing Jose Reyes, Anthony Swarzak, Jay Bruce and Adrian Gonzalez, the Mets had made modest acquisitions that nonetheless stood out in a very slow free-agent market. He solidifies the team's infield and gives the Mets another power source in the middle of the lineup.
