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.
