Former Yankees third baseman Todd Frazier will reportedly sign a two-year, $17 million deal with the Mets, pending a physical, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.
The Mets had been searching for another infielder throughout the offseason to allow them to play Asdrubal Cabrera at second base, and found that player in Frazier, who hit .213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBIs in 147 games with the Yankees and White Sox last season.
Frazier was among the top third basemen the Mets were targeting, as they had also reportedly looked at players like Mike Moustakas, Josh Harrison and Eduardo Nunez.
Frazier, 31, is a lifetime .250 hitter with six home runs and 13 RBIs at Citi Field, where he has played in 22 games.
He hit .207 with 16 home runs and 44 RBIs with Chicago last year before he was traded to the Yankees, hitting .222 with 11 home runs and 32 RBIs in 66 games in pinstripes.
