Heyman | Mets and Todd Frazier agree to deal

Perhaps this move will trigger other big name free agents to finally latch onto an Major League Baseball club for the 2018 season.

Anything the Mets may get out of David Wright this year is a bonus and now they have a legitimate third baseman by signing the soon to be 32 year old Frazier for the next two years. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was still pending a physical. He has 175 home runs over six-plus seasons with the Cincinnati Reds, Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees. The New Jersey native had 27 home runs in 2017 but batted just.213, which likely contributed to the somewhat modest amount of money he is signing for. 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.

Todd Frazier is staying in NY - just not with the same team.

Henry reportedly denied he was being discriminatory and highlighted Senegal's Cheikhou Kouyate as "a great player for us". It's nothing against the African race at all.

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. The Reds traded Frazier to the White Sox prior to the 2016 season.

Frazier joining the Mets will shake up the infield alignment.

At least they, unlike many other teams, made a deal happen. Wright has no intention of retiring right now and is hopeful that he can play this season in some capacity. "It's not something that's lost on any of us", Wilpon said.

McMaster said it appeared the Amtrak train was on the wrong track, although an investigation would determine the precise cause. Sumwalt said the switch was supposed to allow the Amtrak train to continue traveling in a roughly a straight line.

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. Four years later, he debuted in the big leagues.

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.

"You can never fully dismiss the fact that David may be back".
