Braves sign Royals castoff Jason Frasor for bullpen help

6 Comments

Veteran reliever Jason Frasor has signed with the Braves after being released by the Royals earlier this week, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com.

Frasor’s release was a surprise because of his sparkling 1.54 ERA, but his 18/15 K/BB ratio in 23 innings was far less impressive and Kansas City is overflowing with quality bullpen options.

With that said, Frasor has a decade-long history of solid work as a setup man–including a sub-3.75 ERA in six of the past seven seasons–and even at age 37 should be able to help the Braves’ bullpen following closer Jason Grilli’s season-ending Achilles’ tendon injury.
