D-backs targeting Blue Jays reliever?
PHOENIX – The MLB trade deadline is less than a week away and the Arizona Diamondbacks are one of the teams believed to be in the market for pitching help.
One name that has surfaced lately is Toronto Blue Jays right-hander reliever Jason Frasor.
One national insider believes he would be a great addition for Arizona.
“Jason Frasor has got a good arm. He has helped that team very much over the last few years. He would be a very useful piece,” said Tim Kurkjian on Sports 620 KTAR on Tuesday afternoon.
Frasor is a veteran at 33 years old and has compiled a 2.98 ERA this season.
He has proven to be a consistent reliever with a 3.69 ERA throughout his career.
The Diamondbacks just got closer J.J. Putz back from the disabled list so they might not be as desperate to acquire bullpen help.
However, they don’t know if Putz will be able to finish out the season and you can never have enough quality pitching.
If the D-backs can pry Frasor away from Toronto without having to give up any top prospects, it would be a good move on their part.
