    Braves to sign RP Jason Frasor

    The Braves have reportedly agreed to a deal with right-handed reliever Jason Frasor, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Frasor was designated for assignment by the Royals on July 6 and was subsequently released last week. The 37-year-old veteran had been pitching well for the Royals, striking out 6.9 batters per-nine innings and posting a 1.54 ERA in 26 relief appearances. The Braves meanwhile enter the second half of the season with the second-highest bullpen ERA in the National League at 4.40. They also just lost closer Jason Grilli for the season with a ruptured Achilles, so their need for a late-inning arm is apparent. The Mariners and the Red Sox also had reported interest in the right-hander's services, but Frasor has wound up with the Braves.

    Royals' Jason Frasor earns first win Sunday

    Royals reliever Jason Frasor earned his first win of the season in Sunday's 2-1 victory over the Tigers. Frasor had to warm up twice Sunday after a rain delay pushed back the beginning of the ninth inning Sunday. He then faced Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez to open the bottom of the ninth, letting both get on base with a walk and a single. After recording a pair of outs, he issued another walk, but was able to get James McCann to pop out to end the inning and send the game into extra innings. "[Jason] did a phenomenal job getting through that," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "I wasn't worried about it if he hadn't gotten hot the first time, and then had to sit down. But he had to get hot [again], then come in and face Cabrera, Martinez." Frasor has allowed two runs (one earned) on 10 hits and seven walks in 11 1/3 innings while striking out nine. "Frasor has been a guy that we like to bring on in the middle of an inning and stop the bleeding," Yost said. "And he's done it tremendously with his experience, his competitiveness. He doesn't panic when he gets out there on the mound in those situations."
