Todd Frazier went 3-for-6 with a home run and four RBI during Wednesday's lopsided win over the Orioles.
He pipped a single to right field that plated Brandon Nimmo in the first inning, then cracked a solo dinger off starter Dylan Bundy in the fifth. He drove in two more runs with a double in the sixth to cap off one of his best games in a season that hasn't featured very many good games from the veteran third baseman. Frazier also stole a base today, his seventh of the campaign. He owns a .237 batting average with 12 home runs and 41 RBI in 310 plate appearances. He has been hot for the past week though, with 13 hits in his last eight games. Aug 16 - 2:13 AM

Todd Frazier went 1-for-4 with a walk and drove in three runs during Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

He got the scoring started by ripping a bases-loaded double that plated all three runners in the fourth inning. Unfortunately for the Mets that would be their only scoring play of the 11-inning contest. The veteran third baseman has been a major reason for the team's extremely disappointing fortunes this year. He is batting just .217/.299/.370 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI in 69 games. He missed a month of action with a rib cage strain.
Aug 12 - 1:42 AM

Todd Frazier is not in the Mets' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Reds.

Jose Bautista will play third base and bat fifth versus Reds right-hander Robert Stephenson, with Michael Conforto in left field, Austin Jackson in center field, and Brandon Nimmo in right. Frazier is batting just .150 with a .377 OPS in 22 plate appearances since returning August 2 from a left rib cage strain.
Aug 8 - 10:20 AM

Mets activated 3B Todd Frazier from the 10-day disabled list.

He is starting at third base and batting fifth Thursday night against Braves right-hander Mike Foltynewicz after missing nearly four weeks with a left rib cage strain. Frazier has posted a disappointing .217/.300/.385 batting line with 10 home runs in 61 games this season.
Aug 2 - 3:15 PM

Todd Frazier (ribs) will be activated off the disabled list on Thursday.

And he will presumably return to the Mets' starting lineup Thursday night against the Braves. Frazier has been out since July 9 with a left rib cage strain and holds a weak .217/.300/.385 batting line with 10 home runs in 61 games this season, but the 32-year-old slugger is certainly capable of a strong finish in Queens.
Aug 2 - 12:31 PM

Todd Frazier (ribs) is scheduled to play another minor league rehab game with Low-A Brooklyn on Wednesday.

Frazier went 1-for-4 with a double and a walk over two games with High-A St. Lucie before homering in his first game with the Cyclones on Tuesday. He's likely just a couple of days away from rejoining the Mets. Frazier missed most of July with a left ribcage strain and owns a disappointing .217/.300/.385 batting line with 10 home runs in 61 games this season.
Aug 1 - 9:09 AM

Todd Frazier (ribs) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie on Saturday.

The 32-year-old is only expected to require a couple of games there, so barring any setbacks he should be cleared to rejoin the team next week. He's hitting just .217/.300/.385 with 10 homers and 32 RBI in 61 contests with the Mets this season.
Jul 28 - 12:28 PM

Mets manager Mickey Callaway expects Todd Frazier (ribs) to begin a minor league rehab assignment in "the next couple of days."

It was reported Wednesday that Frazier would begin a rehab assignment "soon" and now we have a better idea of what that actually entails. Teammate Noah Syndergaard (illness) is expected back for New York's series in Washington next week and there's a good chance Frazier will join him in D.C. The 32-year-old has slugged 10 homers across 226 at-bats this year.
Jul 26 - 4:27 PM

Todd Frazier (ribs) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment soon.

Frazier will hit again on Tuesday in New York and then head to the Mets' spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida, where he'll step up the intensity of his workouts before beginning to play in live minor league games. It sounds like the 32-year-old third baseman could be ready to return to the active roster sometime next week. He's been out since July 9 due to a left rib cage strain.
Jul 24 - 3:49 PM

Todd Frazier (ribs) was able to hit off of a tee on Sunday and will begin "more intense baseball activities" within the next couple of days.

It sounds like the 32-year-old third baseman is progressing toward a return. Prior to landing on the disabled list on July 9, Frazier was hitting .217/.300/.385 with 10 homers, 32 RBI and five stolen bases in his 61 games.
Jul 22 - 6:54 PM

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

That explains his absence from Monday's lineup. Frazier suffered the injury during Sunday's game. It's unclear how much time he'll need to miss, but it would be no surprise if it's more than the minimum. It has been a rough first year for Frazier in Queens. Ty Kelly will take his place on the active roster and serve in a utility role.
Jul 9 - 2:09 PM

Todd Frazier is not in the Mets' lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Jose Reyes will make the start at third base and bat seventh against right-hander Zach Eflin. Also of note, Dominic Smith will start at first base while Wilmer Flores is on the bench.

Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 and zapped a two-run home run in a 6-3 victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He took Marcus Stroman over the wall with a runner aboard to kick off a decisive five-run rally for the Mets in the fifth inning. The veteran third baseman used to be a complete hitter back in his days with the Reds but has since devolved into a one-dimensional, power-only hitter. He has a .222 batting average with 10 homers and 32 RBI in 58 games. He missed a month of action with a hamstring injury earlier in the season.
Jul 4 - 10:49 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 and scored three runs on Sunday in a win over the Marlins.

One of Frazier's hits was a double, and he also walked. The three runs give the veteran infielder 28 runs, and the strong game ups his OPS to .705 with nine homers and 31 RBI in 56 games with the Mets. These are probably not the numbers the Mets -- or Frazier -- were hoping for when they signed him this winter.
Jul 1 - 4:41 PM

Todd Frazier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

Frazier popped a solo tater off Pablo Lopez in the sixth inning. At the time, that home run gave the Mets a 2-0 lead. The Marlins would score three off Jacob deGrom in the bottom of the sixth, though, and there was no further offensive punch by Frazier's crew through to the end of the game. The veteran third baseman is slashing just .220/.304/.385 with nine home runs and 30 RBI in 55 contests this season.
