UPDATE: It’s now official for $1.5 million, which is a nice bargain pickup for Texas.
Frasor has spent his entire nine-year career with the Blue Jays except for a two-month stint in 2011 after they traded him to the White Sox, only to reacquire the 34-year-old right-hander last offseason.
He’s typically been a solid setup man, throwing 522 innings with a 3.77 ERA, including a 4.12 ERA and 53/33 K/BB ratio in 44 innings last season while being paid $3.75 million.
Frasor could replace some of the high-leverage work the Rangers lost when Mike Adams signed with the Phillies.
