RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After a lights-out season in 2009, Frasor's numbers continue to slowly decline in conjunction with an increasing walk rate. Now 35, teams will be more wary of his increasing walk and home-run rates and may shy away from offering a multi-year contract. Frasor still has plenty of life on his fastball (93.0 mph), and the Rangers rolled the dice on him with a one-year deal in January.

2012

Frasor was sent to the White Sox from the Blue Jays in the Edwin Jackson trade. He posted a 5.09 ERA in 20 setup appearances following the trade, but that unimpressive post-trade ERA was set up by an unsustainable .363 BABIP. He still struck out more than a man per inning with the White Sox, so he should serve as one of Toronto's primary right-handed relievers again after being traded back to the Blue Jays in the offseason.

2011

Frasor had a few too many forgettable appearances in April last season that skewed his overall numbers, but he was much better after the All-Star break, posting a 2.48 ERA and a 1.103 WHIP. He accepted the team's arbitration offer, perhaps with an eye toward inheriting the team's vacant closer position. He'll enter spring as the leading candidate to close games for the Jays barring any other offseason moves.

2010

Frasor parlayed a pair of injuries to Scott Downs to grab a share of the closer's role and performed well enough to earn himself a share of the duties again as the season opens. He's probably the more likely of the two to grab a bigger chunk of the timeshare as the Jays may be tempted to keep the left-handed Downs in a setup role, but there's really no telling how this situation will play itself out. Expect a dozen or so saves and count any more than that as a nice bonus.

2009

Frasor had his worst season since his rookie campaign, posting a 4.18 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP in 47.1 innings. He's not close enough to grab any share of the closer's role without a very vivid imagination and thus, he doesn't really have any upside potential to stash among your reserves. He'll be back in a relief role again for Toronto this season.

2008

Frasor did little with an early-season look as Toronto's closer following the injury to B.J. Ryan, and his 2007 season will be considered a failure despite some nice peripherals (good strikeout and home-run rates). He got his chance and blew it, though there's still value here as a staff filler in deeper leagues.

2007

Frasor received an early season wakeup call in the form of a demotion to the minors after allowing 11 runs in 9.2 innings in April. He was solid after his return, allowing 13 runs over 40.1 innings. His post-break numbers were notable (2.65 ERA, .88 WHIP, 17 K in 17 IP) and he should play a larger role in the Toronto bullpen with the departure of Justin Speier via free agency. He's a nice staff filler in 5x5 AL-only leagues.

2006

Frasor eats up left-handed hitters in his late-inning role and piles up the strikeouts. He'll be an effective setup man alongside Justin Speier for newly signed closer BJ Ryan.

2005

Frasor pitched effectively as Toronto's closer in May, June and July before struggling down the stretch. His 6.39 ERA after the All-Star break came largely as a result of an ugly stretch in late August and early September (13 ER in 7.7 IP) that caused his deposal in favor of Miguel Batista. His role in 2005 will largely depend on what pitching Toronto lands in the offseason.
