Frazier, 32, is a career .245 hitter who makes up for his middling average with big production when he does connect. He has 175 home runs over six-plus seasons with the Cincinnati Reds, Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees.
He hit .213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBI last year, a season where he was traded near the deadline from the White Sox to the Yankees.
He made the National League All-Star team with the Reds in 2014 and 2015.
The Mets will have a new look on both corners after signing aging free agent slugger Adrian Gonzalez to man first base in January.
