The Kansas City Royals announced Wednesday they have acquired veteran right-handed pitcher Jason Frasor from the Texas Rangers in exchange for minor league right-handed pitcher Spencer Patton.

In a corresponding 40-man roster move, the Royals designated infielder/outfielder Jimmy Paredes for assignment and optioned right-handed pitcher Louis Coleman to Triple-A Omaha.

The 36-year-old Frasor is 1-1 with a 3.34 ERA, surrendering 14 walks and striking out 30 in 38 relief appearances this season. He began his career with Toronto (2004-11, 2012) and also pitched part of the 2011 season for the Chicago White Sox. He ranks 11th among active pitchers with 624 career appearances, posting a 31-35 record with a 3.65 ERA all-time.

The 26-year-old Patton, Kansas City’s 24th-round draft pick in 2011, was 4-3 with a 4.08 ERA and 14 saves with Omaha this season. He was selected for Wednesday night's Triple-A All-Star Game in Durham, North Carolina.
