Pepe Frias Comes Back to the Expos, Sort of....

While looking up a side trip diminutive SS Harry Chappas had to the Denver Expos from the White Sox organization, I came across what surely was the last transaction of longtime all-field no-hit SS Pepe Frias,

The Ottawa Citizen of Dec. 16, 1981 carries an article stating Frias was signed by the Expos as a free agent and assigned to AAA Wichita, the day before.

The last Baseball Reference
transaction is this one:

"August 31, 1981: Released by the Los Angeles Dodgers."

He did play a few games there in 1982 then went to Mexico. Frias had a trip to the Brewers system in 1972 to chase down...perhaps it was a loan arrangement,,,,that was how Chappas ended up in Denver.
