Former Rangers pitching in the World Series


The 2014 World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals is turning out to be more exciting than anyone could have imagine.  It has to be a real treat for former Rangers Jason Frasor who joined the Royals this season to be on the edge of winning a World Series with the Royals.  Frasor was traded to the Royals back in July once the Rangers season was basically over.

Frasor was having a decent year with a 3.34 ERA over 38 games/29.2 innings with the Rangers.  He found more success with the Royals, probably helped that he had a better defense behind him in Kansas.  Over the regular season Frasor had an ERA of 1.53 with a record of 3-0 over 23 games/17.2 innings. Frasor commented on his time with the Rangers and going to the Kansas City Royals

So far in the postseason Jason Frasor has done very well.   In 6 of the 7 games he has pitched he hasn’t given up and run and the one game he did allow anything was a run in game 4 of the World Series against the Giants.   For the postseason he has an ERA of 1.69 over 5.1 innings allowing 5 hits, 1 earned run and has recorded 3 strikeouts.

It’s always nice to see well-deserving former Texas Rangers reach the postseason with another team., especially the underdog Kansas City Royals.  Frasor was under appreciated here, maybe because he didn’t dazzle with his stuff, he just came in and did his thing.

But, Frasor is one of the good guys who kept working hard and always had a positive attitude.  Now he’s with a team who are just one win away from a World Series title.  For him this has to be absolutely amazing and rewarding.  Don’t like Jason Frasor?  Check out what he said about raising his two kids and how that relates to his baseball life.

Hopefully the Kansas City Royals will finish off the Giants tomorrow night and win the World Series.  The 2014 Royals are very similar to the 2010 Texas Rangers which makes them very easy to love and to cheer for.  Also, having a great player like Jason Frasor on their team makes it even better.
