On Sunday morning the New York Yankees traded left-handed pitching prospect Caleb Frare to the Chicago White Sox for $1,500,000 in international bonus pool money. Who is Caleb Frare? Let’s find out.

Caleb Frare, LHP: The Yankees drafted Frare in the 11th round in 2012 from Custer County High School in Miles City, Montana. He’s been developed as a relief pitcher and is performing quite well in 2018, posting an 0.81 ERA in 44.2 innings between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton this year, with a 58/15 K/BB and just 27 hits allowed.

Frare is listed at 6-1, 210, age 25. When drafted he had an upper-80s fastball and a mediocre curve but maturity and development have boosted his stuff, his fastball now at 93-94 MPH while showing more consistency with his breaking stuff and general command. He’s held lefties to a .165 average this year and should be ready for a bullpen trial soon.
