Mets’ last-minute trade deadline haul includes Todd Frazier


    The Mets acquired the veteran infielder and backup catcher Robinson Chirinos from the Texas Rangers on Monday in exchange for two players to be named later in what was a flurry of moves before the 4 p.m. trade deadline, The Post’s Joel Sherman reported.

    They also dealt for righty reliever Miguel Castro from the Orioles, giving up lefty pitcher Kevin Smith and either a player to be named later or cash.

    Frazier may be insurance for Mets third baseman J.D. Davis, who left the nightcap of Sunday’s doubleheader against the Yankees early with a left hip issue and is considered day-to-day.

    The 34-year-old Frazier spent two seasons with the Mets in 2018 and ’19 but has struggled so far in Texas. He has just two home runs and is hitting .241/.322/.380 in 31 games this season.

    During his previous stint with the Mets, Frazier, who famously won a Little League World Series representing Toms River, N.J., hit 39 home runs in 249 games.

    Castro is 1-0 with a 4.02 ERA in 16 appearances this season, while Chirinos is considered a defensive specialist.
