Second baseman and outfielder Adam Frazier has been traded to the Seattle Mariners on Saturday. The 29-year-old is now with his third team since July.
In exchange for Frazier, the San Diego Padres received left-handed pitcher Ray Kerr. Outfielder Corey Rosier was also included in the package.
Frazier was to the Padres on July 26th. He was traded for Tucupita Marcano along with prospects Michell Miliano and Jack Suwinski.
Frazier, who is not expected to be a free agent until 2023, may move to third base with this transaction. The Mariners are not expected to re-sign free agent Kyle Seager, who played for the team from 2011 through 2021.
Outside of third base, the rest of the infield is set with the team. Ty France is projected to be the team’s 2022 first baseman.
Abraham Toro is projected to be the second baseman. J.P. Crawford is locked in as the team’s shortstop.
Frazier, who made the All-Star team in the National League in 2021, had a .268 batting average in 57 games following the trade. He had one home run and 11 RBIs.
Before the trade, he had a .324 batting average in 98 games. Frazier had four home runs and 32 RBIs.
In his career, he has a .281 batting average in 665 games. Frazier has 40 home runs and 215 RBIs.© 2007-2022 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
