SHARE White Sox exercise option on right-hander Jason Frasor

The White Sox exercised their club option on 34-year-old right-handed reliever Jason Frasor on Monday. The graduate of Oak Forest High School and Southern Illinois University came to the Sox from the Toronto Blue Jays along with right-hander Zach Stewart in a three way trade on July 27 that moved right-hander Edwin Jackson to the Cardinals and third baseman Mark Teahen to Toronto.

Frasor will earn a base salary of $3.75 million in 2012. Frasor’s performance in 20 games for the Sox was below his career norm. He was 1-2 with a 5.09 ERA for the Sox, and 3-3 with a 3.60 overall in 2011. His career ERA is 3.74.

Frasor had expressed a desire to stay with the Sox during the season.
