The "ToddFather" is staying in New York City, but he's moving from the Bronx to Queens.

The New York Mets have agreed to a two-year, $17-million deal with third baseman Todd Frazier, pending a physical, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Frazier hit .213/.344/.428 with 27 home runs and 76 RBIs in 147 games between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees in 2017. Despite posting the worst batting average of his career, he walked at a better clip than ever before, resulting in his best on-base percentage as a pro.

A two-time All-Star, he'll likely fit into the starting third-baseman role, a spot relinquished by longtime Mets slugger David Wright as injuries have piled up.

Projected lineup

ORDER PLAYER POS
1 Brandon Nimmo/Michael Conforto CF
2 Asdrubal Cabrera 2B
3 Yoenis Cespedes LF
4 Jay Bruce RF
5 Todd Frazier 3B
6 Adrian Gonzalez 1B
7 Travis d'Arnaud C
8 Amed Rosario SS

He's the third addition to the starting lineup this offseason after the Mets brought Jay Bruce back with a three-year, $39-million deal and signed 35-year-old Adrian Gonzalez to be the team's new first baseman.

Frazier, who turns 32 next week, had been in contact with both New York teams throughout the offseason, but ultimately decided to take his talents to Citi Field, and back to the National League. He spent the first five seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Reds, where he hit 108 home runs and stole 43 bases.
