The San Diego Padres make a significant move to reinforce their offense before the end of the trade.
As the first information from Jeff Passan of ESPN, the Fathers acquire second basman Adam Frazier from the Pittsburgh Pirates. There was no immediate word on who would receive the Pirates in return.
Although not a famous name, the 29-year-old Frazier has had a rough year for the Pirates. He hit .327, leads the league with 125 successes, and was named to his first All-Star career career earlier this month. Although primarily a second baseman, he also has the versatility to play a capable left field if needed.
The Fathers they fired another bat for some time while trying to reinforce his offense. It’s unclear where they will put Frazier in their line, but a possibility includes moving second baseman Jake Cronenworth toward the first, probably costing Eric Hosmer playing time in wrestling.
Although the Padres hold the fourth-best record in the National League, they are still in third place in the NL West, five games behind top-ranked San Francisco Giants.
