Todd Frazier the free agent third baseman will switch teams but remain close to his home as sources report that Frazier will sign a deal with the New York Mets and become the regular at the hot corner that has been up in the air since an injury to David Wright. He led Toms River (New Jersey) to the Little League World Series title in 1998.

Frazier hit 27 home runs a year ago, while driving in 76 RBI between the White Sox and Yankees with an OBP of.344.

The New Jersey native was said to be interested in remaining in NY.

In 2015, Frazier had 35 home runs with Cincinnati and won the Home Run Derby at the All-Star Game.

The last event is the Taco Bell Skills Challenge where Kristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks try to defend his crown. The North Carolina State product is averaging 14.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.9 rebound per game.

Frazier, who turns 32 next week, was traded from the White Sox to the Yankees last summer and the Yanks were reportedly interested in bringing him back but are hesitant to go over the luxury tax threshold. Bruce and Frazier combined for 63 homers last season.

Numerous biggest Major League Baseball free agents remain unsigned, but one got a deal on Monday.

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.

Still, his arrival will please many Mets fans who had been angered by the team's lack of spending this offseason.
