Frazier hit just.213/.344/.428 combined with the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox last season, however, he did produce 27 homers, drove in 76 runs and played in 147 games, something that is very important to a team that seems to be under siege by injuries year after year. Frazier hit 40 home runs in 2016 and 35 the year before.
The New York Mets have finally landed the infielder they've sought all offseason.
Chase Headley, the starter at third last season until Frazier arrived, was moved to the San Diego Padres in December, so the Yankees also in-house candidates at third besides Andujar are utility infielders Ronald Torreyes and Tyler Wade.
By comparison Frazier had a.960 fielding percentage at third with the White Sox and Yankees, and for his career he has a.965 fielding percentage at the position.
Frazier joining the Mets will shake up the infield alignment.
The Mets made the deal a week before they open spring training in Port St. Lucie, Florida. "So we're set out to make the playoffs and do well ... try to win the World Series, not try and be at the top five in payroll".
The veteran third baseman drew the ire of a Mets fan last season after hitting a home run against the Rays during a game played at Citi Field due to Hurricane Irma. Frazier, known for his big, effusive personality, immediately had an impact in the clubhouse; he took on a leadership role, which is unusual for a player who arrived during the season in a trade. At the start of the off-season, the Mets' payroll was expected to drop, angering some fans. "On the other hand, you can't fully presume that he is", Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said last month.
