ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – The Texas Rangers became sellers at the trade deadline after a rough start to the 60-game season.

After trading starting pitcher Mike Minor earlier Monday to the Oakland A’s, the 12-21 Rangers moved infielder Todd Frazier and catcher Robinson Chirinos to the Mets.

Texas receives two players to be named. New York also receives cash in the deal involving Chirinos.

The Mets also announced a deal with Baltimore in which they acquired right-hander Miguel Castro for minor league left-hander Kevin Smith and a player to be named or cash.

The Rangers and Mets (15-20) are both under .500, but the postseason race looks more forgiving in the National League. New York is bringing Frazier back after he hit 39 home runs for the Mets over two seasons in 2018 and 2019. He hit .241 with two homers in 31 games for Texas this year after signing with the Rangers in January.

Chirinos has hit .119 in 14 games this season and recently spent time on the injured list because of a sprained ankle.

The 25-year-old Castro has a strong fastball but has long struggled with his control. Castro is 1-0 with a 4.02 ERA in 16 games this season. His career record is 7-16 over 220 games, with all but two of those appearances out of the bullpen.
