2018 FANTASY BASEBALL STOCK WATCH: TODD FRAZIER COULD LEAD OFF FOR NY METS

New Mets manager Mickey Callaway is already making waves since being names the team's skipper back in December, with his unconventional ways becoming very apparent early on.  For starter's, Callaway has already firmly stated that he will use a strict committee to finish games this season; speasing out saves among Jeurys Familia, A.J. Ramos, Jerry Blevins, and Anthony Swarzak.  The latest gem came on Tuesday when Callaway suggested that recently-signed third baseman Todd Frazier may lead off games for the team when spring training ends.  Frazier would no doubt be an odd choice to lead off since he hit just .213 last season and stole all of 4 bases.  Be that as it may, Frazier's .344 OBP was strong and he drew walks at a very high 14.4 BB/9 clip a year ago which jives nicely with the leadoff spot.  Obviously if this comes to fruition, Frazier's fantasy baseball outloook would improve for 2018 given the additional at-bats he would receive and a boost in runs and home runs would likely result as well.  Frazier could also possibly decide to run a bit more as well and he has stolen as many as 15 bases as recently as 2016.  Overall however, Frazier is just a low-end starting option in 12 team mixed fantasy baseball league's this spring even if he does end up leading off games as part of Callaway's latest odd decision.
