New York Mets Land Todd Frazier

Frazier, a welcome midseason acquisition for the Yankees previous year, will play third base, filling a hole that has always been vacated by an ailing David Wright and temporarily occupied by Asdrubal Cabrera, a natural shortstop. For Frazier, the move means moving across town after he finished the 2017 season with the New York Yankees. So, the ability to perform under the pressure of NY shouldn't be too much of a question. In 2015, after hitting 25 homers in the first half of the season, he won the Home Run Derby hosted in Cincinnati, but fell into a second-half slump and finished with 35 homers and a.255/.309/.498/117 OPS+ line.

A native of Toms River, New Jersey, Frazier also tweeted playing for the Yankees was a "dream come true" when the Chicago White Sox sent him to the Big Apple in July.

Meantime, the Yankees still could add an experienced third baseman via trade or free agent, although adding significant money to the payroll could prevent either from occurring due to managing partner Hal Steinbrenner's insistence on his club being under the $197 million luxury-tax threshold.

They can not wave the Russian flag at the event and, if they win, the Russian anthem will not be played. The ruling means that the athletes' results at the 2014 Olympics have also been reinstated.

It's probably some of the best news that Mets fans have received in a while. Frazier is the Mets' second notable signing after they reunited with Jay Bruce on a three-year, $39 million contract.

Cabrera has publicly stated in the past his desire to play second base rather than third.

The Frazier signing hampers David Wright's latest comeback attempt. He solidifies the team's infield and gives the Mets another power source in the middle of the lineup. That motley assortment was a gruesome 17 runs below average according to DRS, with Flores (-8) and Reyes (-5) the worst offenders.
