Rangers re-sign Jason Frasor to one-year deal

USA TODAY Sports

The 36-year old will be back for his second year in Texas.

The Texas Rangers have re-signed reliever Jason Frasor to a one-year, $1.75 million deal that includes incentives, in a move first reported by Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Frasor, 36, was set to become a free agent at the end of the one-year, $1.5 million contract that he signed with Texas in January.

In 61 relief appearances for the Rangers on the year, Frasor posted a solid 4-3 record, 2.57 ERA, 8.8 K/9, and 3.7 BB/9 in what amounts to one of the best statistical seasons of his career. Although he only appeared in 49 innings for Texas, Frasor's presence as a solid veteran arm was valuable in the sixth and seventh innings ahead of Tanner Scheppers and Joe Nathan.

The Rangers' bullpen ranked fourth in the majors on the season with a 2.91 ERA, meaning that it is likely that general manager Jon Daniels will work hard to retain the strong nucleus of relievers this winter. The team has the ability to pick up Nathan's $9 million option for 2014, but he may opt out and become a free agent in search of a multi-year deal on the free agent market.

In ten major league seasons with the Blue Jays (2004-2011, 2012), White Sox (2011) and Rangers (2013), Frasor is the owner of a lifetime 30-34 record and 3.67 ERA in 586 career appearances.
