The need for another reliable right-handed setup reliever has the Seattle Mariners taking a hard look at veteran Jason Frasor, who chose to become a free agent earlier this month after clearing waivers.

Frasor was designated for assignment by Kansas City on July 6 and then released one week later after going without a claim or a trade. He had a shiny 1.54 ERA in 23 1/3 innings this season out of the Royals’ bullpen, though that came with a rough 18/15 K/BB ratio and 1.67 WHIP. Frasor turns 38 years old in early August.

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation’s MLB Daily Dish says the Rangers are also a potential fit.
