Jason Frasor agrees to rejoin Rangers for 1 year
Ex-Blue Jays reliever elects to avoid free agency
Reliever Jason Frasor has agreed to a $1.75 million US, one-year deal to remain with the Texas Rangers rather than become a free agent.
The 36-year-old right-hander went 4-3 with a 2.57 ERA in 61 appearances in his first season with the Rangers. Opponents hit a career-low .203 against him.
Over his final 41 appearances since June, Frasor allowed eight earned runs over 35 innings, a 2.06 ERA.
The 10-year major league veteran is 30-34 with a 3.67 ERA in 586 career appearances, all in relief. He agreed to a $1.5 million deal with the Rangers in January after spending nine seasons in Toronto, except for the end of the 2011 season with the Chicago White Sox.
He earned $400,000 in performance bonuses based on games. Frasor's deal was announced Friday.
