The Texas Rangers and veteran third baseman Todd Frazier agreed to a deal on Sunday to a one year deal worth $5 million.
The Rangers have been in talks with Frazier’s agent this offseason, as well as being involved in trade talks for Nolan Arenado of Colorado.

Frazier, 34, played his last two seasons in New York with the Mets. He had a combined 39 HR and 126 RBI in 248 games. In 2019, he began the season on the injured list with a left oblique strain but finished the season hitting .251 at the plate which was his highest batting average since hitting .255 in 2015 with Cincinnati.


Frazier isn’t the answer to the Ranger’s long term want or need, and expect the team to add another player, whether it be third base or first base, as Frazier can play either corner position. Nick Castellanos will likely be the biggest target remaining for Texas to add to this roster, as the 27-year-old is looking to be a starter with a long term contract.


Spring training is approaching fast, and if the Rangers want to add anyone else, they’ll need to add them soon.

Frazier might not be the most popular name on many teams list, but the Rangers needed to make a move after missing out on Anthony Rendon and Josh Donaldson.


Nick Castellanos and Nolan Arenado have been targeted for this team this offseason, but Arenado seems to be more out of reach than anything. Castellanos can still be a Ranger and could add him later this offseason.

Frazier’s role as of right now will likely be a starter working in a platoon with Isiah Kiner-Falefa at third base. He’ll also DH on days needed, but he’s a solid right-handed bat in the lineup. Frazier played 133 games in 2019, so he’s still able to play every day if the Rangers wanted to roll into the season with Frazier as the starter.


The biggest question is if he can stay healthy as he’s seen the injured list in 2018 and 2019 with different injuries.
