Todd Frazier Could Be the New Mets Backup Shortstop


The Mets may have a new backup shortstop when the roadtrip begins Thursday in Atlanta, but it’s not who you might expect.

Since Luis Guillorme is essentially collecting dust on the Mets bench, and Todd Frazier is almost ready, the “Toddfather” will be an option if the Mets need someone to spell Amed Rosario.

During his rehab assignment, he’s seen some brief work at shortstop, although if anything happened to Rosario, I’m sure Frazier wouldn’t be the long-term answer. That’s probably when someone like Adeiny Hecheverria would get a call.

Here’s an excerpt from the New York Post:

On Tuesday, Frazier played five innings at third base and four at shortstop in a rehab game for Single-A St. Lucie. The 33-year-old Frazier’s previous action at shortstop came in 2011, when he appeared in two games at the position for the Reds.
