Digging into the Mariners’ first move of the offseason: Adding Adam Frazier


The other shoe finally dropped on the Mariners’ offseason Saturday, as the team kicked off what could be a bustling winter with its first player acquisition.

The Mariners acquired second baseman/outfielder Adam Frazier from the Padres for two minor league players — pitcher Ray Kerr and outfielder Corey Rosier.

“He makes us a better, more complete team,” Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto said of Frazier. “He does the things winning teams value.”

An All-Star in 2021, Frazier is projected to make $7.2 million this season, according to This will be his final season before becoming a free agent.

Frazier, who turns 30 on Dec. 14, is a player the Mariners have long had an interest in. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported that Seattle made a run at acquiring him before the trade deadline in July. Frazier ultimately went to the Padres for three prospects.

In June, The Athletic surmised that Frazier might be a player who fit the Mariners’ plans well. Five months later, Seattle got its guy.
