San Diego Padres acquire second baseman Adam Frazier in trade with Pirates

San Diego has acquired All-Star second baseman Adam Frazier in a trade with the Pirates, in return for three minor league players in the deal: shortstop Tucupita Marcano, right-handed pitcher Mitchell Miliano and outfielder Jack Suwinski.

The 29-year-old Frazier has been among baseball’s breakout stars this season, batting .324/.388/.448 with 58 runs scored in 98 games. He currently leads the majors with 125 hits this year and will not be a free agent until after the 2022 season.

San Diego already has an All-Star at second base in Jake Cronenworth, though he also has experience at first. Frazier’s arrival could possibly move Cronenworth there, reducing play time for current first baseman Eric Hosmer.
