Todd Frazier (hamstring) was scheduled to do some hitting on Monday.
It will be his first time hitting in about five or six days. Frazier landed on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain nearly two weeks ago and said Saturday that he's still feeling it when he runs. He'll require a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Mets, though it's unclear when that might take place. May 21 - 3:29 PM

Date:

Todd Frazier told reporters that he doesn't expect to be activated from the disabled list on Friday with a left hamstring strain.

The hope was that Frazier might be able to spend the minimum amount of time on the disabled list after being placed on the DL on May 8, but that no longer seems realistic. It's possible that Frazier could now go for a rehab assignment in the coming days, and be activated for the Mets before the end of the month.
May 16 - 6:46 PM

Mets placed 3B Todd Frazier on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Frazier went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts in Monday's series opener against the Reds and apparently injured his hamstring as well. Jose Reyes is filling in at third base for New York on Tuesday and might get regular playing time there over the next few weeks.
May 8 - 6:32 PM

Todd Frazier is out of the Mets' lineup Tuesday because of a sore left hamstring.

It's being called a day-to-day situation. Jose Reyes will start at third base and bat eighth for the Mets versus Reds right-hander Luis Castillo.
May 8 - 4:06 PM

Todd Frazier is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Reds.

Frazier has scuffled of late and could probably use a breather. Jose Reyes, the owner of a .406 OPS, will cover third base duties and bat eighth against right-hander Luis Castillo.
May 8 - 3:44 PM

Todd Frazier is getting the day off Thursday.

Jose Reyes will start at third base and bat leadoff versus Braves right-hander Julio Teheran. Frazier owns a cool .814 OPS with four home runs and 17 RBI in 28 games this season with the Mets.
May 3 - 10:22 AM

Todd Frazier (toe) went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in his return to the Mets' lineup Tuesday.

Frazier suffered a minor bruise on his foot after getting spiked on Saturday, but he moved around just fine in Tuesday night's series opener against the Cardinals, a 10-inning win for the Mets. The third baseman is batting .261/.411/.464 with three homers, 14 RBI, and 14 runs scored through 21 games this season.
Apr 25 - 8:28 AM

Todd Frazier is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday because of a sore toe as a result of being spiked Saturday.

Manager Mickey Callaway noted that he was looking to give Frazier his first day off of the season, anyway, so this ailment doesn't appear to be a big deal. Frazier should be back in there Tuesday after Monday's off day. Wilmer Flores is at third base Sunday.
Apr 22 - 10:43 AM

Todd Frazier went 1-for-2 with two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

He laced a two-run single in the Mets' nine-run eighth inning explosion. Frazier also walked twice in the ballgame. He has been hot of late to boost his slash line to .291/.438/.491 with two homers, 13 RBI and 10 runs scored in 73 plate appearances.
Apr 18 - 10:49 PM

Todd Frazier went 3-for-3 with two solo homers and a walk in Friday’s 6-5 victory over the Brewers.

They were his first two homers in a Mets’ uniform. It was the ninth multi-homer game of his career. His batting average jumped from .222 to .282 with the big night. Frazier walked more than ever before last season and has kept that going with 10 walks and a .423 on-base percentage so far this season.
Apr 13 - 11:29 PM

Todd Frazier went 1-for-3 with a double and three RBI on Saturday, leading the Mets to a 6-2 victory over the visiting Cardinals.

Frazier got the Mets on the board in a hurry, delivering a two-run double off of Michael Wacha in the first inning. He tacked on a sacrifice fly in the seventh to increase their lead to 5-1. The veteran third baseman has gotten off to a nice start with his new club and even functioned as the team's cleanup hitter on Saturday.
Mar 31 - 4:33 PM

Todd Frazier went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in a Grapefruit League loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

He plated a run with a sacrifice fly in the third inning, then grooved a double to the right-center gap to drive in a second run in the fifth frame. The veteran third baseman will try to improve on his career-worst .213 batting average from a year ago as he enters his first season with the Mets. His power, defense and clubhouse leadership will keep him in the lineup even if he continues to hit for a low average.
Mar 24 - 4:31 PM

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets are discussing the idea of Todd Frazier batting leadoff.

It's an odd idea given that Frazier is a .245 career hitter with a .321 career on-base percentage, though he did show improvement in the OBP department last year. The veteran slugger would probably be better utilized in the heart of the Mets' batting order. He signed a two-year, $17 million free agent contract with the Mets last week after tallying 27 home runs and 76 RBI over 147 games between the White Sox and Yankees in 2017.
Feb 13 - 4:38 PM

Mets signed 3B Todd Frazier to a two-year, $17 million contract.

The deal was agreed to on Monday and finalized Wednesday after Frazier passed his physical. He will be officially introduced as the Mets' new starting third baseman at a press conference on Wednesday evening. The 31-year-old batted .213/.344/.428 with 27 home runs and 76 RBI in 147 games last season between the White Sox and Yankees. He slugged 40 home runs for Chicago in 2016.
Feb 7 - 2:27 PM

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Mets have an agreement with Todd Frazier on a two-year, $17 million contract.

The deal is pending a physical. Frazier seemed likely to land a three-year deal when the offseason began, but the stagnant market obviously hurt him. The Mets will take it. A week away from his 32nd birthday, Frazier batted .213/.344/.428 with 27 home runs and 76 RBI for the White Sox and Yankees last season. He'll be the Mets' third baseman, which means Asdrubal Cabrera will slide over to second.
