The 29-year-old Frazier, who leads baseball in hits this year, isn’t a free agent until after the 2022 season.
In exchange, the Pirates will acquire right-hander Michell Miliano, shortstop Tucupita Marcano and outfielder Jake Suwinski, according to a source.
Frazier entered Sunday with a .327 average, the second-best average in the majors, with four home runs and 32 RBIs.
Frazier, a 2020 Gold Glove finalist and All-Star this season, was the second-longest-serving Piretas player behind right fielder Gregory Polanco.
When asked about the possibility of being traded a week ago, Frazier said he was not going to let that distract him.
“It’s great to be recognized like that and for teams to love you,” said Frazier. “It means a lot. It tells you that you’re playing well, but I still have to worry about playing baseball. (MLB in Spanish)
