White Sox trade reliever Jason Frasor back to Blue Jays

From the White Sox’ official Twitter feed comes word that reliever Jason Frasor has been traded back to his former team, the Blue Jays, for minor league right-handers Myles Jaye and Daniel Webb.

It’s yet another sign — if we’re ignoring the recent contract extension given to John Danks — that the Pale Hose are entering full rebuilding mode.

Frasor posted a decent 3.60 ERA and 57/26 K/BB ratio in 60 innings last season between Chicago and Toronto. He was traded from the Blue Jays to the White Sox at the July 31 deadline, but is now back in the Toronto ‘pen to serve as middle relief in 2012.

Jaye, 20, was a 17th-round selection in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft. He had a 3.00 ERA and 49/18 K/BB ratio in 54 innings last year in rookie ball. Webb, 22, was an 18th-round pick in 2009 and registered a 5.48 ERA and 51/24 K/BB ratio across 67 1/3 innings last season between two different levels of Single-A.

The White Sox exercised a $3.75 million club option on Frasor in late October.

      He was given back to the Blue Jays rather than traded. The Sox did not get good value for him. Toronto has now strengthened the bull pen significantly. On a personal note for Frasor, he is from Chicago and his wife is from Toronto and they have a young child. There were grandparents available to babysit in both cities.

    The cat came back, thought he was a goner. Frasor back on the tube in TO!

    Webb was low on the Jay’s totem pole with a Jay named Jaye new news to almost everyone in Beaverland.

    This reeks of salary dump for KW. Maybe he is looking for change under the cushions to go after a player? Ken’s Machavellian moves are confusing and make me wonder if he has a Cepedes complex.
