Todd Frazier won't have to change many of his New York City habits for the upcoming season. The deal is for two years and $17 million, pending a physical, the sources confirmed.
Frazier, 31, was traded to the Yankees last season by the White Sox and indicated interest in remaining in NY.
Frazier, who turns 32 on February 12, had hinted on Twitter Sunday the Mets were his likely destination. 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.
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. Mainly, the team needed a significant piece to shore up either second or third base.
David Wright for everything he's done for the Mets should be allowed to openly talk about his situation
The Mets will have a new look on both corners after signing aging free agent slugger Adrian Gonzalez to man first base in January. They're haunted by the specter of perception that they're a big-market team that spends like a much, much smaller one, so this signing should help. Last season's Yankees and White Sox third baseman is moving boroughs to join the Mets for the 2018 season.
According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, Frazier's deal includes no incentives and is without a no-trade clause, though Frazier would get a $500,000 bonus if the Mets made a decision to move him.
In 2017, Frazier would get off to one of the worst starts of his career. Jose Reyes would be the utility infielder. For the Mets, Frazier solves the problem of the open spot in their infield while also adding a veteran hitter to their lineup.
