Todd Frazier staying close to home, signs 2-year deal with Mets

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

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Mets have an agreement with Todd Frazier on a two-year, $17 million contract.

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.

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. During the Yankees' postseason run to the ACLS, Frazier hit.186 with one home run and five runs batted in. He set highs for his career in home runs with 40 and RBIs with 98 in 2016 with the White Sox.

Students at Gaston Middle School on Thursday kicked off Black History Month with a presentation that was at times solemn, but also educational, energetic and musical.

Frazier, who turns 32 next week, was traded from the White Sox to the Yankees last summer and the Yanks were reportedly interested in bringing him back but are hesitant to go over the luxury tax threshold. Last season's Yankees and White Sox third baseman is moving boroughs to join the Mets for the 2018 season.

The move likely means an opening day infield for the Mets consisting of Adrian Gonzalez, Asdrubal Cabrera, Amed Rosario and Frazier.

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