MLB Free Agency: New York Mets sign Todd Frazier

Popular wherever he's been, the spirited Frazier has always drawn cheers from local fans when playing in the NY area.

This Toms River son will stay in the Big Apple. Via The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, Todd Frazier has agreed to a two-year, $17 million deal with the Mets. However, SI reported that the Yankees two rookies as their third-base options. 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. He hit a combined.213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBIs last season for the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees. On days Wright plays, the Mets could theoretically push Frazier to first base in place of either Adrian Gonzalez or Dominic Smith.

Frazier, who hit.213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBIs previous year, doesn't provide the statistical splash that a Mike Moustakas would, but it long appeared that the Mets weren't seriously in the running for that big-ticket player.

The signing of Frazier figures to be the last major move the Mets make this offseason.

If the market continues to tank, maybe the Mets will get to sign even more free agents.

Frazier will also be a big part of the Mets new clubhouse culture, something new skipper Mickey Calloway is a big believer in.

The 31-year-old Frazier will provide power to the Mets lineup, having averaged nearly 33 home runs a year since 2014-Frazier's first year as an All-Star. Asdrubal Cabrera will now most likely shift to being the club's full-time second baseman and the prospect of a starting role for Jose Reyes is probably off the table. With Yoenis Cespedes, Jay Bruce and the eventual return of Michael Conforto, the Mets outfield is solid.
