Royals re-sign Jason Frasor for $1.8 million


Jason Frasor will be back with the Royals, agreeing to a one-year, $1.8 million deal with a team option for 2016.

Kansas City acquired Frasor from Texas in mid-July and the 36-year-old right-hander pitched very well down the stretch with a 1.53 ERA and 16/4 K/BB ratio in 18 innings.

A veteran of 11 seasons and 647 career appearances, Frasor has posted a sub-4.00 ERA in five of the past six years and has a combined 2.62 ERA with 94 strikeouts in 96 innings since 2013.

Barring some trades he’ll fill a middle relief role for the bullpen-rich Royals in 2015 and a total commitment under $2 million is a bargain.
