Description: Relief pitcher Jason Frasor signed a one-year deal with the Texas Rangers for 2013.
Insight: Frasor owns a couple of double-digit save seasons, but has not had a save since 2010. He was a middle relief guy for the White Sox and Blue Jays and figures to be in that same role for Texas. He can get you a strikeout-per-inning, but unless your league uses the hold category, his 2013 fantasy value figures to be minimal.

Description: Frasor avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal with the Jays on Friday.
Insight: In a crowded back end to the Toronto bullpen, Frasor will likely be hard-pressed to find saves. Octavio Dotel, Jon Rauch and newly acquired Frank Francisco are also in that picture. (

Description: Jason Frasor accepted arbitration from Toronto and will stay with the team for the 2010 season. SOURCE: MLB
Insight: He will have a good shot at closing in Toronto next year and that could set him up for a bigger payday in 2012.
9/26/2010 3:30:00 PM
Description: Jason Frasor picked up his fourth save of the season today.
Insight: He came in during the eighth inning and with a three run lead the team chose to let him pitch the ninth. He likely won't get anymore saves this year. He is a free agent after the season.
4/9/2010 8:34:00 AM
Description: Frasor pitched a scoreless ninth inning on Thursday against the Rangers. He walked one and struck out two.
Insight: Frasor recorded his second save of the season for the Blue Jays. (

3/15/2010 8:57:00 AM
Description: Frasor surrendered four runs on four hits in only 1/3 of an inning on Sunday against the Braves. He walked two and did not strike out a batter.
Insight: Frasor struggled once again as his Spring ERA ballooned to 15.43. He is battling for a spot in the Blue Jays' bullpen. (
3/10/2010 10:45:00 AM
Description: Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun reports, via Twitter, that the Twins have expressed interest in Frasor.
Insight: Frasor looks like the odd-man out in the Blue Jays' closer competition, and he would get a chance to close in Minnesota with Joe Nathan (right elbow) looking likely to miss the season. Frasor had 11 saves in 14 opportunities along with a 7-3 record and 2.50 ERA in 2009. (
3/3/2010 8:52:00 AM
Description: reports that Frasor has really transformed himself as a pitcher now that he has added a changeup to his arsenal.
Insight: Frasor was 7-3 with a 2.50 ERA in 61 games with the Blue Jays and even recorded 11 saves. (
Steady7/7/2009 1:30:00 PM
Description: Frasor allowed two runs and three hits in 1 2/3 innings Monday, but he still notched his third save of the season.
Insight: Frasor, who now has a 2.40 ERA, has been solid all year so this shaky outing shouldn't deter manager Cito Gaston from giving him another save chance soon. (
Hot6/12/2009 2:20:00 AM
Description: Frasor tossed 1 2/3 perfect innings in Thursday's loss to the Texas Rangers. The righthander struck out three.
Insight: Frasor, who lowered his ERA to 1.96, has allowed four of his five runs on the season in one bad outing. Clearly, he is one of baseball's best middle relievers and carries plenty of fantasy value. (
Hot4/23/2009 12:06:00 AM
Description: Frasor tossed two perfect innings to record the win in Wednesday's 11-inning, 8-7 victory over the Texas Rangers. He struck out two.
Insight: Though B.J. Ryan has seemingly found his stride as the closer, Frasor still has tons of value in all formats. He has allowed just two hits and one walk in eight scoreless innings this season. (
Hot4/12/2009 3:40:00 AM
Description: Frasor came on in relief of the ineffective B.J. Ryan and recorded the last out of Saturday's 5-4 win over the Cleveland Indians for his first save of the season.
Insight: Don't jump the gun on picking up Frasor just yet. Ryan is apparently unable to pitch at a high level, mostly because he is struggling to hit over 90 mph on the gun. Scott Downs pitched earlier in the game to set up Ryan, so Frasor was just the next option for manager Cito Gaston. If you're looking to vulture saves now, Downs is the pickup you want. (
