SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle's first big move of the offseason was completing a deal Jerry Dipoto tried to make last summer.

The Mariners finally landed Adam Frazier on Saturday, acquiring the All-Star second baseman in a trade with the San Diego Padres.

“We thought we were at the goal line to acquire Adam at trade deadline last year,” said Dipoto, Seattle's president of baseball operations. “Obviously we missed out and we stayed in touch with the Padres as we headed into the offseason knowing that they had a pretty robust roster.

The Padres acquired left-handed reliever Ray Kerr and outfielder Corey Rosier.

Kerr was added to the Mariners’ 40-man roster just last week. He split time between Double-A Arkansas and...
