The Cubs and Blue Jays Continue to Talk Trade

Chicago Cubs

With a youthful bullpen, light on solid options at the end of the game, the Chicago Cubs continue to consider options for adding a veteran right-hander. To that end, Blue Jays reliever Jason Frasor is still on the table.

The Toronto Blue Jays continue to scout all of the Cubs’ spring training games, and the Cubs have had their top scouts looking at right-handed pitcher Jason Frasor, a 31-year-old relief pitcher from Oak Forest. Frasor would go right into the role of the eighth-inning set-up man for the Cubs if he is acquired. ESPN Chicago.

Frasor has been discussed at length in this space, and I won’t belabor the issue now – suffice it to say, his 2009 was by far the best season of his career, and the Cubs don’t exactly have the best track record with veterans coming off career years.

The Minnesota Twins have also been in talks with the Blue Jays about Frasor, and following yesterday’s announcement that Joe Nathan is definitely having season-ending Tommy John surgery, you can believe that they will up their pursuit. Which means Frasor’s price tag just went up.
