Rangers sign Jason Frasor, eye Lance Berkman
By Richard Durrett
The Texas Rangers continue to try to fill some holes this offseason. The team has agreed to a one-year deal with reliever Jason Frasor, the club announced Thursday. The club also has some interest in Lance Berkman, a source confirmed, should the veteran decide to play again in 2013.
Frasor, 35, made 50 appearances for the Toronto Blue Jays last season, posting a 4.12 ERA with 53 strikeouts and 22 walks. He missed seven weeks, including all of August, because of a strained right forearm.
Berkman, 36, played in just 32 games last season with the St. Louis Cardinals because of knee troubles. He had two surgeries on his right knee last year. He did have 31 homers and 94 RBIs to go along with a .959 OPS in 2011.
