Frasor is 35, was acquired by Toronto straight up for Jayson Werth in the spring of 2004, and has appeared in 525 major league games in his career, all of them in relief, all but 20 of them with the Toronto Blue Jays.

He strikes out a lot of guys, walks a lot of guys, and gives up a fair number of home runs while throwing hard. Think of him as the new Mark Lowe.

UPDATE -- The deal is apparently done. One year, $1.5 million. Reasonable enough, I guess, for a middling middle reliever. Eli Whiteside has been designated for assignment to make room on the 40 man roster for Fraseor.
