The most persistent rumor that’s dogged the Pirates this season seems to be coming true today.

Various sources, including ESPN’s Jeff Passan and The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, are reporting that the Pirates have traded second baseman/left fielder Adam Frazier to the San Diego Padres.

Rosenthal is stating that the Padres are giving up three prospects—infielder Tucupita Marcano, outfielder Jack Suwinski, and RHP Michell Miliano—in exchange for Frazier, who currently has the most hits in the majors.

Miliano is in Class A ball per Rosenthal.

The Athletic’s Rob Biertempfel reports that the Pirates are also sending $1.4 million to the Padres in the deal.

Note that none of this has been officially confirmed, but the sources are pretty solid.

Frazier, 29, is having a career season. His slash line is currently .324/.388/.836, and he was an All-Star starter earlier this month.

This is a developing story. Bucs Dugout and the Talk the Plank podcast will update as more details become available.
