Mets, Todd Frazier agree to two-year deal

Mets, Todd Frazier agree to two-year deal”

The Mets made their long-awaited move to solidify their infield, and they did so with a familiar face in NY.

Frazier would finish the 2017 season batting.213 with 26 home runs, and 77 runs batted in between both the White Sox and Yankees. That speculation has included multiple teams throughout this offseason.

Frazier split last season between the White Sox and the Yankees, who acquired him along with relievers Tommy Kahnle and David Robertson in a July 19 deal. He hit 40 home runs in 2016, and 175 homers in six full Major League Baseball seasons.

That was how Eddie Jones attempted to downplay England's chances of becoming the first team to win the Six Nations three years in a row.

The Mets are also rumored to be going after Alex Cobb and Lance Lynn if their prices come down, and have repeatedly claimed to have tried for top targets after other teams already inked them.

The Mets made the deal a week before they open spring training in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

The veteran slugger, who will turn 32 next Monday, started his career with the Cincinnati Reds in 2011.

Free agent third baseman Todd Frazier is switching sides close to home, set to join the New York Mets and take over a spot that's been in flux since David Wright got injured. He played there for five seasons, making two all-star appearances along the way.

"We're thinking expansively", Alderson said two weeks ago.

The Mets began a year ago with a $157 million payroll for its 40-man roster and trimmed it to $149 million as injuries and poor pitching wrecked their postseason chances.

Yildirim's remarks came in response to comments by French President Emmanuel Macron who warned Turkey against invading the northern Syrian enclave of Afrin.

The 31-year-old had signed a one-year, $13 million deal with the White Sox before they traded him to the Yankees. 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.
