The Texas Rangers are still working hard at rebuilding their team after a rough start to the offseason.  Part of their plan includes reinforcing their bullpen after losing relievers such as Mike Adams and Koji Uehara.  Yesterday, the Rangers announced a one-year deal with Jason Frasor. According to Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas, the Rangers and Frasor agreed to a $1.5 million deal.  The signing means the Rangers had to designate Eli Whiteside to make room for Frasor on the 40-man roster.  Frasor has spent the majority of his career with the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Jays seemed interested in bringing him back.  However, Texas offered Frasor what he was looking for. "I just wanted to go to a winner, I really did," Frasor said. "I was in Toronto for nine years, and I didn't sniff a playoff race, let alone a playoff. I feel great. But obviously my window is closing a little bit. I wanted to be on a great team. I'm thrilled. It's the perfect opportunity." Frasor landed on the disabled list for the first time in his career last year.  He missed a good chunk of time with forearm stiffness.  However, the Rangers are comfortable with Frasors health after he underwent a full physical including X-Rays and an MRI, says Durrett. Frasor is a nine-year Major League veteran.  He spent eight of his nine years in Toronto.  The one stop over away from the Blue Jays was in 2011 with the Chicago White Sox.  In his career, Frasor is 26-31 with a 3.77 ERA.  In his 50 games with the Blue Jays last season, Frasor posted a 4.12 ERA.
