The San Diego Padres they sent the gardener Adam Frazier to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for two prospects in the MLB.
According to Jeff Passan, they are acquiring second baseman / outfielder Adam Frazier in a trade with the San Diego Padres, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN. Left-handed reliever Ray Kerr and outfielder Corey Rosier will go to San Diego.
Both Kerr and Rosier are two minor league relievers as the Padres look to bolster their bullpen and have started with a young piece with plenty of projection.
Kerr is coming off 2-1 with a 3.18 ERA in 39.2 innings and 60 strikeouts. While Rosier had his first Minor League appearance in 2021, playing in the ROK and Class-A, hitting 380 with 3 homers, 23 RBIs and 18 stolen bases, he is a left-handed hitting right fielder.
The 29-year-old Frazier was an All-Star last year for Pittsburgh, however, he couldn’t keep up playing for the San Diego Padres who acquired him to improve the first bases of the lineup and ended up being one of the last, He didn’t even appear in the lineup from time to time.
Now the Mariners are likely to walk out of the talks for Marcus Semien or Javier Báez.
Adam Frazier numbers in 2021.
- 155 games, 4 home runs, 32 RBIs, 5 stolen bases, 305 AVG, 779 OPS and 176 hits. However, with the San Diego Padres he only hit 267, 1 home run, 11 RBIs and 51 hits in 57 games.
