Jason Frasor Trade: Chicago Acquires Two Prospects From Toronto

The Chicago White Sox continue to shake up their roster, as the team announced on Sunday that it has traded relief pitcher Jason Frasor to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for pitching prospects Myles Jaye and Daniel Webb. Frasor was acquired from Toronto in last season's Edwin Jackson trade, so he'll be returning to the team that he's spent most of the past few years with.

Frasor, 34, has spent his entire career in Toronto outside of 2011's short stint with the White Sox. He broke out in 2009 by posting a 2.50 ERA in 57 innings, but he's posted an ERA of 3.64 over the past two seasons. Missing bats hasn't really been a problem for him, but his command is shaky and that's often gave him issues.

Jaye, 20, was Toronto's 17th-round pick in 2010. Drafted out of a Georgia high school, the right-hander posted a 3.00 ERA in 54 innings in the Appalachian League in 2011, and is years away from potentially contributing in the majors. Webb, 22, was Toronto's 18th-round pick in 2009. He spent last year with Single-A Lansing, posting a 5.48 ERA over 67 innings. Neither player was rated among Toronto's top-25 prospects by John Sickels.
