According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the Padres are sending Frazier to the Seattle Mariners for two minor leaguers.
The Seattle Mariners are acquiring second baseman/outfielder Adam Frazier in a trade with the San Diego Padres, sources familiar with the agreement tell ESPN. Going to San Diego will be hard-throwing left-handed reliever Ray Kerr and outfielder Corey Rosier.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) November 27, 2021
Frazier, an All-Star starter this past season, batted .324 in his time in Pittsburgh, making him a hot commodity at the trade deadline. The Padres took the risk, but it failed to pay off. Frazier struggled in San Diego, batting .267 as a Friar.
In return, the Padres acquired LHP Ray Kerr and OF Corey Rosier.
Kerr, 27, started his season in AA-Arkansas before being promoted to AAA-Tacoma. In 36 appearances, Kerr went 2-1 while recording a 3.18 ERA.
Rosier, 22, was drafted in the 12th round of this year’s MLB Amateur Draft. He spent majority of his season in Low-A Modesto, batting .390 in 31 games with 23 RBI’s.
Rosier appears to be the player with higher upside, but considering the Padres had to part with three high-upside players, including their #5 prospect IF Tucupita Marcano, it’s somewhat of a disappointment.
