Alderson: Mets 'opportunistic' in landing Frazier

The Mets hunted the free-agent market for bargains like savvy shoppers at a season closeout, and general manager Sandy Alderson said, "Some opportunities arose for us that probably would not have been expected right after the end of the World Series."

Frazier's son predicted he'd sign with the Mets (0:50)

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

The Mets gave Todd Frazier a reasonable two-year contract and fantasy managers should consider him a later-round pick. He's not a top-50 player anymore. Frazier used to hit .270 and stole bases, too. The new Frazier takes a lot of walks, so he's more valuable in an OBP or points format, and there could be some batting average correction coming. His BABIP has been depressed for two years, though it could be his new baseline. Ultimately, a .230 batting average with 30 homers, perhaps 10 steals isn't asking for too much, and that has value.

The veteran third baseman provides enough power and value at the plate to go with solid defense, making him worth his two-year, $17 million contract.
