Todd Frazier has been waiting for months hoping the Yankees would want him back for a one-year contract. Unfortunately, that will not happen for Frazier in the upcoming 2018 Baseball Season. Now with football season over and spring training is right around the corner, Todd Frazier gave up on returning to the Yankees when he accepted a two-year, $17-million offer from the New York Mets. Frazier was a great clubhouse guy and enjoyed being on a team loaded with young talented players. At least, he gets to stay close to home and at the same time, the Mets gain a clubhouse leader that plays hard. Don’t forget that Frazier is a good third baseman and will hit for a lot of home runs.
In the meantime, the Yankees can add an experienced third baseman via trade, free agent or just stay within their farm system. The Yankees are looking at their options with rookie Miguel Andujar, Gleyber Torres, Tyler Wade, Danny Espinosa or Ronald Torreyes. You will never know until the season starts as the Yankees love to trade for crafty veterans like Mike Moustakas and Eduardo Nuñez that are waiting in the wings.
