Jason Frasor traded back to Blue Jays

For the second time this winter, the White Sox have shipped a relief pitcher to the Blue Jays. This time around, it's Jason Frasor headed back to Toronto in exchange for minor league pitchers Myles Jaye and Daniel Webb, the White Sox have announced.

The two clubs also made a trade during the Winter Meetings, sending closer Sergio Santos to the Blue Jays. Also interesting here is that Frasor was traded to the White Sox by the Blue Jays in July. He's made 475 career appearances, 455 of which came with the Blue Jays, so Frasor is definitely back where he's familiar.

Frasor, 34, had a 3.60 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 60 innings last season, but he was much better (2.98 ERA, 1.25 WHIP) with the Blue Jays. He was really bad for the White Sox after the deal. So maybe the change of scenery was bad and he'll recover now that he's back with the Jays.

Jaye is a 20-year-old right-hander. He went 3-3 with a 3.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 54 innings in Rookie Ball last season.

Webb is a 22-year-old right-hander. He was 4-5 with a 5.48 ERA in 67 1/3 innings last season, all but 1 1/3 of which were in Class A. He also threw 1 1/3 innings in Rookie Ball.

Frasor will be part of the bridge to Santos, along with also-newly acquired Darren Oliver and Casey Janssen.

As a White Sox fan I am so happy to see Frasor go. He was awful for the Sox in 2011, and so if the Sox got anything more than a bag of Cheetos it is a plus for the Sox.

He got rid of a 34 year old middle reliever that had a 5.00 era, that is what he is doing.

Blue Jays pen is rounding into shape very nicely this offseason. Now can we just get Prince and be done with it?

Skyhawk is a moron, straight up. He claims to be a Jays fan, but clearly he isn't. He talks crap continuously about their direction, when almost anyone can see they are looking pretty promising as of late. Ive read him bashing AA, trading Halladay (who was going to leave with no compensation anyway) and also Bautista, who any team in MLB would love to have in their line-up. He's clueless, please don't mention him. He also thinks Hamilton can't support an NHL team.

*waits for a comment from SkyHawk claiming this will be the downfall of the Blue Jays and they'll never win after this trade*

Looks good to me. He's fairly dependable and was traded for guys that would probably never make an impact. He won't be closing like he has been asked to in the past and is a solid middle reliever, possible setup man.
