Todd Frazier

Another name that will attract a lot of attention for teams looking for power is Todd Frazier. Frazier made a name for himself going into free agency in the second half of the season and the playoffs with the Yankees.

His production when it mattered the most will drive his stock up. As he had become a mainstay in the middle of the Yankees lineup, they will make a run to retain him. It would be senseless to compete with them to sign Frazier, as his acquisition would also impede the development of Maikel Franco.

With a somewhat limited market in right-handed power hitters in this free agent class, Frazier may demand the kind of money only the Yankees are willing to spend. His numbers themselves are worrisome and not worth the big money the Yankees or another team may spend on him.
