Mets Considering Batting Todd Frazier Leadoff

On Tuesday at manager Mickey Callaway’s presser in Port St. Lucie, he said that finding a leadoff hitter is going to be one of the more difficult tasks on his agenda.

However, Mike Puma of the New York Post is reporting that the team is discussing batting new acquisition Todd Frazier in the No. 1 spot.

The 31-year-old split the 2017 season between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees, appearing in 147 games and hitting to a .213/.344/.428 clip with 27 homers and 76 RBI. He also had a 108 wRC+ and .335 wOBA in 576 plate appearances.

Frazier definitely gets on base, but I still believe he is an imperfect leadoff hitter and would like to have him in the meat of the order.

With that being said, it would be cool to see Juan Lagares and Brandon Nimmo get a chance to hit atop the lineup at least while Michael Conforto is hurt.

MMO’s Josh Finkelstein also predicted what he believes will be the Mets batting orders, which can be found here.

What do you think of Frazier as a potential leadoff guy?
