Braves signed RHP Jason Frasor to a one-year contract.
He'll make a prorated portion of the veteran minimum, with the Royals still responsible for the remainder of his $1.8 million salary for 2015, as well as his $550,000 buyout for 2016. Frasor has been lucky to post a 1.54 ERA given his 18/15 K/BB ratio and 1.67 WHIP over 23 1/3 innings. Still, he has a good shot to be a solid middle relief option in Atlanta. Jul 17 - 12:56 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Braves have signed veteran reliever Jason Frasor.

Frasor became a free agent earlier this week after getting moved off the Royals' 40-man roster. He had a nice-looking 1.54 ERA in 23 1/3 innings out of the Kansas City bullpen, though that came with a not-so-shiny 18/15 K/BB ratio and 1.67 WHIP. The 37-year-old could actually see some save opportunities in Atlanta given that Jason Grilli is now done for the year with a ruptured Achilles. Jim Johnson is currently the Braves' best bet for saves, but he's a trade candidate.

John Tomase of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox are interested in Jason Frasor.

The Mariners have also been linked to Frasor, who was recently released by the Royals. The 37-year-old reliever held a 1.54 ERA this season for Kansas City, although it also came with an 18/15 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings. Still, it's not a surprise that it looks like he'll be able to easily find a major league deal somewhere.

Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that the Mariners are showing interest in Jason Frasor.

Frasor became a free agent on Monday after passing through waivers. The 37-year-old right-hander had a 1.54 ERA in 23 1/3 innings out of the Kansas City bullpen, but his 18/15 K/BB ratio and 1.67 WHIP show that he was the beneficiary of some serious good luck. He probably won't be much of an upgrade for the team that winds up signing him.
Jul 14 - 5:18 PM

Royals released RHP Jason Frasor.

Frasor was designated for assignment by the Royals on July 6 and passed through waivers unclaimed. He had registered a nice-looking 1.54 ERA in 23 1/3 innings this season out of the Kansas City bullpen, though that came with an 18/15 K/BB ratio and 1.67 WHIP. There should be some interest in him now on the open market.
Jul 13 - 12:07 PM

Royals designated RHP Jason Frasor for assignment.

Well, this one is a surprise. Frasor has been lucky to post a 1.54 ERA this season considering his 4.03 FIP and 18/15 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings, but he's been a mostly reliable reliever since arriving in Kansas City last July. He's making just $1.25 million this season and has a $2 million mutual option for 2016. The Royals seem likely to be able to find someone wanting to trade for Frasor.
Jul 6 - 5:00 PM

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.

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.
Wed, Jul 16, 2014 12:20:00 PM

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.
Fri, Oct 11, 2013 02:09:00 PM

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.
Fri, May 24, 2013 01:19:00 AM

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.
Thu, Jan 3, 2013 12:34:00 PM

Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers are nearing a one-year deal with Jason Frasor.

Frasor posted a 4.12 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 53/22 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings last season for the Blue Jays. He will function as a middle reliever in 2013 with Texas.
Thu, Jan 3, 2013 11:21:00 AM

According to Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM, the Brewers have interest in free agent Jason Frasor.

Appearing on Bowden's Sirius XM Radio show, GM Doug Melvin named Frasor, Mike Gonzalez, Jon Rauch and Kyle Farnsworth as relievers the Brewers are targeting in free agency. Frasor, 35, posted a 4.12 ERA in 50 appearances with the Blue Jays in 2012. He's likely to command a one-year deal this offseason.
Tue, Dec 18, 2012 09:10:00 AM

Blue Jays activated RHP Jason Frasor from the 15-day disabled list.

Frasor pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings in Saturday's win over the Red Sox. He had been sidelined since July 17 with forearm tightness.
Sun, Sep 9, 2012 03:18:00 AM

Jason Frasor (forearm) is on track to return to the Blue Jays' bullpen on Saturday.

Frasor will make a single rehab appearance on Thursday at High-A Dunedin and will progress right to activation if it goes smoothly. The right-hander has been on the shelf since July 17 with forearm tightness.
