Mets sign Todd Frazier to a two-year deal


Todd Frazier agreed to a two-year deal worth $17 million with the New York Mets, The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Monday.

This move means that Asdrubal Cabrera will likely start for the Mets at second instead of third.

Frazier, who is from New Jersey, was received warmly when he returned to the New York City area.

Kumar said around 6-7 crore persons fall into poverty each year due to medical expenses and they are often in non-poor category. For instance, some private hospitals that charge up to Rs3 lakh for angioplasty and stenting, do the same surgery for ₹65,000.

Frazier hit.213 with a.772 OPS between Chicago and NY last season while cutting his strikeout rate as K's rose across the league. While third base has been his home for his entire big league career, he has played some at first, which may be handy for the Mets with a pair of left-handed hitters that play there.

Frazier, who earned All-Star appearances in each of his final two seasons in Cincinnati, hit.257 with 108 home runs, 324 runs batted in and a.784 OPS as a member of the Reds. They'll have to let Cabrera know he's back to shortstop or the backup at third, something that caused him to request a trade last season.

At least they, unlike many other teams, made a deal happen. The oft-injured 35-year-old is signed through 2020. Mike Moustakas remains available in free agency, or the team may envision Miguel Andujar making the jump to Major League Baseball full time in 2018. Otherwise this might be the high water mark of their offseason.
