Mariners acquire Adam Frazier in trade with San Diego Padres

The Seattle Mariners acquired second baseman / outfielder Adam Frazier in a trade with the San Diego Padres. Left-handed reliever Raymond Kerr and outfielder Corey Rosier will go to San Diego.

Frazier, who will turn 30 in December, was an All-Star last season for Pittsburgh, which traded him to the Padres. He’s in line to play a utility role, especially if Seattle signs a big-name free agent infielder.

“Adam is a proven, versatile and well-rounded player,” Seattle general manager Jerry Dipoto said in a statement. “His presence makes our lineup longer and our team more complete.”

The Mariners announced the move on Twitter with a nod to the television show “Frasier.”

Frazier is on a $ 7.5 million contract this season and can enter free agency after the 2022 season. He finished fifth in the National League last season in hits (176) and batting average (.305) and added five home runs and 43. RBIs.
