The New York Mets have traded for Todd Frazier, catcher Robinson in a trade with the Texas Rangers, and reliever Miguel Castro in a deal with the Baltimore Orioles.
Pete Alonso on the Mets re-acquiring Todd Frazier: “This is news to me. But if he does come back, I love Todd. Todd is the man. He’s always welcome here in the clubhouse. Never a dull moment… He just brings good vibes no matter where he goes.”
General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen has said that he likes that Miguel Castro is controllable, in terms of his contract, and that he has late inning experience.
Mathew Brownstein reports that Castro is a reliever whose fastball velocity is in the 97th percentile this season. The right-hander won’t hit free agency until 2023.
Texas will receive a player to be named later while the Orioles will get Kevin Smith back.
