Happy birthday, Lou Frazier

New, comments

Happy birthday to Lou Frazier, who turns 44 today.

Frazier was a 5th outfielder that the Rangers acquired from the Expos in 1995 in exchange for Hector Fajardo (which brings to mind how disappointing the Steve Beuchele trade ended up being...but nevermind that...).

Frazier hung around through 1996, and thus was part of the Rangers' first playoff team (although I don't think he was on the playoff roster).  He appeared in 30 games in 1996 and had 60 plate appearances, which gives you a good indication of how he was used.  He ended up getting claimed on waivers by the Mariners after the season, and only appeared in 7 more major league games the rest of his career.
