Pirates trade All-Star Adam Frazier to Padres for prospects

By , Audacy

The MLB trade deadline is starting to get some action.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded All-Star second baseman and outfielder Adam Frazier to the San Diego Padres, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.

MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal added that the Pirates will be receiving 21-year-old infielder/outfielder Tucupita Marcano and outfield prospect Jack Suwinski in the reported deal, which is still in the medical review stage.

Frazier, 29, has been floated around trade rumors for weeks. He leads MLB in hits this season with 125 and gives the Padres a left-handed bat in their already dangerous lineup as they make a push for the NL West.

Frazier is also under team control through the 2022 season before he becomes a free agent.

Marcano is the fifth-ranked prospect on the Padres, per MLB Pipeline, and has played in 25 games this season with the Padres, hitting .182/.280/.485 in just 50 plate appearances.

Suwinski, 22, was a 15th round pick in 2016 and has played this season in Double-A San Antonio, hitting .269/.398/.551 with 15 home runs and 37 RBI through 66 games.
