Royals re-signed RHP Jason Frasor to a one-year, $1.25 million contract with a $2 million mutual option for 2016.
There's a $550,000 buyout attached to the option, so the deal will net Frasor at least $1.8 million. He can also earn an additional $500,000 in incentives in both 2015 and 2016. The Royals' big three at the back-end of the bullpen deservedly received most of the attention, but Frasor was also terrific for them in middle relief, posting a 1.53 ERA in 23 appearances after coming over in a trade with the Rangers. The 37-year-old should have another effective year or two left in the tank. Fri, Nov 28, 2014 10:35:00 AM

Royals acquired RHP Jason Frasor from the Rangers in exchange for RHP Spencer Patton.

The Royals' bullpen was already a big strength, and now they're a bit deeper. Frasor, 36, holds a 3.34 ERA with 30 strikeouts over 29 2/3 innings for the Rangers this season and will fit in nicely in a middle relief role in Kansas City.

Rangers re-signed RHP Jason Frasor to a one-year, $1.75 million contract.

He'll have the opportunity to earn more through incentives. Frasor gets a modest raise from his $1.5 million salary in 2013 after posting a 2.57 ERA and 1.14 WHIP while striking out 48 over 49 innings. He should continue to be solid in middle relief for the Rangers in 2014.

Jason Frasor has tallied a 3.65 ERA through 17 appearances in his first season for the Rangers.

Signed to a one-year, $1.5 million contract in early January, Frasor has improved upon 2012's disappointing campaign for the Blue Jays, where he posted a rough 4.12 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 43-plus innings of relief. Frasor owns a 13/5 K/BB ratio and 1.29 WHIP through 12 1/3 frames.

Rangers signed RHP Jason Frasor to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

Frasor posted a rough 4.12 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 43-plus innings of relief in 2012 with Toronto but he's a decent bounceback candidate. The 35-year-old will operate in middle relief this year for the Rangers.
