(ARLINGTON, Texas) — The Texas Rangers agreed to a one-year contract with free agent relief pitcher Jason Frasor on Thursday. The deal is worth $1.5 million, according to The Dallas Morning News.
In 2012, the 35-year-old Frasor went 1-1 with a 4.12 ERA in 50 games with the Toronto Blue Jays. He struck out 53 batters in 43 2-3 innings of work.
Frasor spent the first seven and a half years of his big league career with the Blue Jays before being dealt midway through the 2011 season to the Chicago White Sox. The Sox traded him back to the Jays before the beginning of last season.
To make room for the right-hander on the 40-man roster, the Rangers designated catcher Eli Whiteside for assignment.
