Frazier out for
year with injury
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State point guard and leading scorer Tim Frazier will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured left Achilles tendon, a devastating blow for the rebuilding Big Ten program.
Frazier was injured about six minutes into the Nittany Lions’ 85-60 loss Sunday to Akron at the Puerto Rico Tipoff.
Coach Patrick Chambers said Frazier was undergoing surgery Tuesday, with a recovery period of 6-12 months. The team plans to apply for a fifth year of eligibility for Frazier on a medical redshirt, but cannot officially turn in the paperwork until after the season.
“Obviously, my heart goes out to Tim Frazier ... He’s done everything I’ve asked him to do and then some,” said Chambers, the second-year coach. “He will rebound from this injury. He will come back bigger, better and stronger, which is scary.”
Seattle trades Robinson to
Orioles for Andino
SEATTLE (AP) — Looking to add depth to the infield, the Seattle Mariners have acquired versatile Robert Andino from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for reserve outfielder Trayvon Robinson.
The trade was made Tuesday and instantly gives the Mariners an experienced infielder who can play second base, third base and shortstop. Despite struggling at the plate, Andino has played in 266 games the last two seasons for the Orioles. Andino started 106 games last season for the Orioles, including 96 at second base.
Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik says the ability to add a versatile infielder with proven experience was appealing.
Robinson played in 90 games over the past two seasons for the Mariners. He hit .215 in his limited major league time, but was caught in a log-jam of outfielders seeking playing time in Seattle.
