The Chicago White Sox acquired All-Star third baseman Todd Frazier from the Cincinnati Reds as part of a three-team, seven-player trade that involved the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The White Sox sent second baseman Micah Johnson, right-handed pitcher Frankie Montas and outfielder Trayce Thompson to the Dodgers, while the Reds received three prospects -- infielders Brandon Dixon and Jose Peraza and outfielder Scott Schebler -- from the Dodgers.

Frazier, 29, batted .255 with 35 home runs and 89 RBIs with Cincinnati in 2015.

-- Ageless right-hander Bartolo Colon will be back with the New York Mets next season after a deal was struck on a one-year, $7.25 million contract, multiple media outlets reported.

Colon, who will turn 43 in May, started the 2014 opener for the Mets and finished with a 14-13 record and a 4.16 ERA in a career-high 194 2/3 innings. He was 8-3 after two months of the season, which ended with Colon making it to the World Series for the first time in his career. In the postseason, Colon didn't start a game but pitched seven times in relief and took the loss in the Series opener against the Kansas City Royals. His 218 career wins lead all active pitchers.

-- St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina will have his left thumb in a cast for four to five weeks after having a second surgery to repair a ligament, the team announced.

Molina had been bothered by discomfort in the thumb after the first operation in mid-October after the Cardinals were ousted from the National League playoffs by the Chicago Cubs.

The Cardinals still hope that Molina will recover in time for opening day in 2016. After Molina's first surgery, his project return was sometime during spring training.

-- Former Texas Rangers designated hitter Mike Napoli agreed to a one-year, $7 million deal with the Cleveland Indians.

Napoli, 34, could also play first base for the Indians. He hit .224 last season with 18 home runs and has 204 career homers. CBS Sports first reported the deal and said Napoli can add approximately $3 million by reach incentives.

-- The Seattle Mariners claimed right-handed pitcher A.J. Schugel off waivers from Arizona.

To make room on the 40-man roster, left-hander Tyler Olson was designated for assignment.

Schugel, 26, made his major league debut with Arizona last year, posting a 5.00 ERA over nine innings in five relief appearances. Olson, 26, began last season in the majors with Seattle, appearing in 11 games as a reliever and going 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in 13 1/3 innings before being placed on the disabled list with a right knee contusion.
