San Diego Padres acquire second baseman Adam Frazier from the Pittsburgh Pirates, sources told ESPN.
Frazier, 29, who leads baseball in hits this year, is not a free agent until the 2022 season.
In exchange, the Pirates acquire right-hander Michell Miliano, shortstop Tucupita Marcano and outfielder Jack Suwinski, a source told ESPN’s Kiley McDaniel.
Frazier entered Sunday with an average of .327 – the second-best average in Major League Baseball – with four homers and 32 RBIs.
A 2020 Gold Glove finalist and All-Star this season, Frazier was the Pirates’ second longest starting player, behind right fielder Gregory Polanco.
Asked about the possibility of being traded a week ago, Frazier said he was not getting sidetracked.
“It’s pretty cool to be recognized like that and to have teams that want you,” Frazier said. “It means a lot. It tells you that you are playing well, but I still have to worry about playing baseball.”
