Heyman | Mets and Todd Frazier agree to deal

Mets pull Todd Frazier out of free agency for $17M

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

Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic reported Monday night that third baseman Todd Frazier has agreed to terms with the New York Mets on a two-year deal worth $17 million. He led Toms River (New Jersey) to the Little League World Series title in 1998.

The Yankees acquired Frazier in the same July trade that also brought relievers David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle over from the White Sox.

He hit.213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBI a year ago, a season where he was traded near the deadline from the White Sox to the Yankees.

Justin Timberlake conspiracy: Will he go 'N SYNC for Super Bowl halftime?
He added: "I always knew I always wanted to write a song for him, but I didn't know it was going to be a song to him". He asked Timberlake if the Super Bowl's star celebrity attraction would want his son Silas to play football someday.

Frazier won the Home Run Derby in 2015. He set highs for his career in home runs with 40 and RBIs with 98 in 2016 with the White Sox. Bruce and Frazier combined for 63 homers last season.

A steady player on defense during his entire career, Frazier has played in the All-Star Game twice and will be 32 next week. Amed Rosario will handle shortstop, Asdrubal Cabrera will play second base, and Adrian Gonzalez first base. 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.

Frazier's departure leaves the Yankees without many options at third base.
