Todd Frazier agreed to a two-year deal worth $17 million with the New York Mets, The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Monday.

Frazier, who was acquired by the New York Yankees in mid-July, will be making the move from the Bronx to Queens as the Mets look for some stability on the hot corner.

The Mets' infield seems set with Frazier at 3rd base, 22 year-old phenom Amed Rosario at shortstop, Asdrubal Cabrera at 2nd base, and 14-year veteran Adrian Gonzalez at 1st base.

Frazier only spent the second half of the 2017 season with the New York Yankees, but he left a big impression on the team as it made its run through the postseason.

Frazier, who earned All-Star appearances in each of his final two seasons in Cincinnati, hit.257 with 108 home runs, 324 runs batted in and a.784 OPS as a member of the Reds.

The Mets are also rumored to be going after Alex Cobb and Lance Lynn if their prices come down, and have repeatedly claimed to have tried for top targets after other teams already inked them. Which is all very Mets.

The deal for Frazier comes just one week prior to the start of spring training in what has been a very slow free market all winter. Otherwise this might be the high water mark of their offseason.
