Mets reportedly agree to sign Todd Frazier for two years, $17 million

"I love playing at home", Frazier said previous year after he was traded to the Yankees, his favourite team as a kid. On the season, he hit a career-low.213.

It's probably some of the best news that Mets fans have received in a while. However, his 27 home runs and.772 OPS were more than respectable.

Free agent third baseman and Yankees fan favorite Todd Frazier will be taking his talents, and his thumbs, to Flushing.

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. Bruce and Frazier combined for 63 homers last season.

Walker was strongly considered, but team officials were also concerned about the optics involved in potentially bringing back another player from last season's 70-92 disaster. On days Wright plays, the Mets could theoretically push Frazier to first base in place of either Adrian Gonzalez or Dominic Smith.

Frazier will likely become the team's everyday third baseman after the Mets used a platoon primarily consisting of Asdrubal Cabrera and Wilmer Flores at third base last season. But Cabrera, who complained last season when he was moved from shortstop to second base, recently indicated he was more comfortable at second than third. The Frazier signing is a much needed piece, but there is still work to be done. At only a week short of 32 years old, Frazier isn't a double digit-per year man anymore but fills a need for the Mets and is an AAV in line with what Frazier would have gotten even in an offseason more normal than this one. He solidifies the team's infield and gives the Mets another power source in the middle of the lineup.

In an unusually depressed free agent market, the Mets have spent $72.5 million this winter on five players.

Moving from the Bronx to Queens, Frazier will likely provide another veteran leadership role with the Mets, just as he did with the Yankees.
