Former Cincinnati Reds fan favorite Todd Frazier, a free agent, is signing a minor-league deal with an invitation to Spring Training with the Pittsburgh Pirates, according to multiple reports Friday.
Frazier, 35, hit .224 with two homers in 51 plate appearances for the Mets last season after they acquired him from the Texas Rangers in August for Ryder Ryan. He's hit .242 with 218 home runs over 10 big-league seasons.
Frazier tweeted earlier this week that video shared via Twitter of Frazier celebrating a 2013 home run he promised then-honorary batboy Ted Kremer made his night. Frazier and Kremer reunited in 2018 at Great American Ball Park in advance of a game between the Reds and Frazier's team at the time, the New York Mets.
The Reds traded Frazier to the Chicago White Sox in Dec. 2015 in a deal that brought Jose Peraza, Scott Schebler and Brandon Dixon from the Dodgers to Cincinnati.
