Rangers re-sign reliever Jason Frasor to one-year deal
After posting a 2.57 ERA and 1.14 WHIP, Jason Frasor has re-signed with the Rangers.
The Texas Rangers have re-signed relief pitcher Jason Frasor to a one-year deal, the club announced Friday afternoon. He was set for free agency once it started, but instead he'll be staying put. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but Frasor made $1.5 million this past season, so it's likely he netted a slight raise.
Frasor, 36, was 4-3 with a 2.57 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 48 strikeouts in 49 innings this season. He stranded 38 of the 47 baserunners he inherited (76 percent), so it was a very productive season for the veteran right-hander.
In terms of what was a very good Rangers bullpen this past season, they now need to decide if they're going to pick up closer Joe Nathan's $9 million club option. If Nathan walks, Joakim Soria and -- if they don't want him to try his hand in the rotation again -- Neftali Feliz could be internal options as a replacement.
