The Texas Rangers took another step to solidify their bullpen Thursday, signing right-hander Jason Frasor to a one-year deal.
Frasor is the third proven reliever the Rangers have added this offseason, joining Joakim Soria and Josh Lindblom.
Frasor, 35, has played nine year in the majors with the bulk of his work coming in Toronto. Frasor is coming off a 20-12 season in which he went 1-1 with a 4.12 ERA for Toronto. He had 53 strikeouts in 43 23 innings.
For his career, opponents are hitting just .239 against Frasor and right-handers are batting just .229. Frasor is 26-31 for his career with a 3.77 ERA over 525 appearances.
To make room for Frasor on the 40-man roster, Texas designated catcher Eli Whiteside for assignment. The Rangers have 40 players on their 40-man roster.

Tommy who? In his second year back from TJS, Joe Nathan looked like his usual dominant self saving 37 games for the AL West-runner-up Texas Rangers. Not only did Nathan strike out nearly 11 batters per nine innings, but he did it while posting the lowest walk rate of his entire career. Put the two together and you have a career-best 6.00 K:BB ratio to go with his 2.80 ERA and 1.06...

Public opinion of the Rangers’ offseason seems to have taken a negative tone — they lost Josh Hamilton to free agency, and were unable to lure Zack Greinke into their clutches. But despite these two misses the sky is most definitely not falling in Texas. Between its additions around the edges, its addition by subtraction and the trio of prospects that it will graduate to the...

Free Agent reliever Darren Oliver wants more money if the Toronto Blue Jays are going to bring him back. However, wanting more and getting more are two different things altogether. The Blue Jays have already spent a lot of money this offseason, and they may not be willing to shell out too much more to bring back a 42-year old reliever.
Oliver performed well for the Blue Jays...
