NY Mets All-Star trade target Adam Frazier

Just as Gibson stands alone as the only guy from the American League roster, Adam Frazier stands out in a field by himself. He’s the only guy voted into the game. The starting second baseman for the National League could help give the Mets a boost at multiple positions. He’s essentially the right-handed hitting version of Jeff McNeil—in the good years.

Frazier wasn’t always my favorite addition for the team to make this summer because of a few important details. Namely, where do they play him?

When the Mets are fully healthy, which they nearly are, they have a full roster of guys we know can play well. This year, we haven’t seen it from everyone. Just about every offensive player has had their struggles. Adding Frazier could help the Mets rotate the position players a little more while getting his bat into the lineup regularly.

It’s a nice idea, but with another year of control after this season, I’m not so sure it’s something the Mets want to buy high on and then figure things out in 2022. I’m lukewarm to the idea of buying so high on Frazier when the cost should be through the roof at the moment.

If positional versatility is what the Mets are looking for, why not simply move McNeil around and add a big bat at another position you’d like more from?

I’m not against acquiring Frazier. I’m also not all for it because of what it means for future Mets rosters.
