New York Mets ink 3B Todd Frazier to 2-year deal

Todd Frazier won't have to change many of his New York City habits for the upcoming season.

According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, New York has reached an agreement with veteran infielder Todd Frazier on a two-year, $17 million contract. Chris Carter led the National League in home runs (41) in 2016 and was out of a job last season by mid-July.

Frazier played for the Toms River, New Jersey Little League team that won the Little League World Series in 1998 and was later a star with Rutgers.

The Mets were in the market for some infield help as David Wright remains a major question mark after missing all of last season and then undergoing back surgery in October.

Frazier hit 27 home runs past year, while driving in 76 RBI between the White Sox and Yankees with an OBP of.344. The Yankees were his favorite team growing up. He hit.207 with 16 home runs and 44 RBI in 81 games for the White Sox.

He replaced Chase Headley at third base as the Yankees liked Frazier's defense over Headley's.

With Frazier now in the fold, the Mets can start Asdrubal Cabrera at second base and put Jose Reyes in a utility backup role, where he better fits at this point in his career.

Still, his arrival will please many Mets fans who had been angered by the team's lack of spending this offseason.
