The Mets have reportedly agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal with Jed Lowrie, a bargain if he can come close to the 4.4 WAR he's averaged the past two seasons. It may seem like an odd signing on the heels of the Robinson Cano trade, but the price was right and too much depth is never a bad thing. Plus, Todd Frazier wasn't that great last year and Peter Alonso's projections aren't anything special, so the Mets can play Lowrie at third and Frazier/Alonso at first, with Jeff McNeil as the utility guy.
