Cardinals' Eric Fryer: Draws third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Phillies.

Fryer is making his third consecutive start with Yadier Molina (back) still recovering from an injury. The Cardinals remain optimistic that with a scheduled off day Monday, Molina will be ready to go for the series opener Tuesday with the Brewers, so Fryer's stint in the starting nine could be short lived. The backstop went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored Saturday.

Cardinals' Eric Fryer: Smacks two hits in rare start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Rockies.

The backup catcher got a rare start with Yadier Molina sitting and was able to rope his third extra-base hit of the season. It was also Fryer's first multi-hit effort of the season, although it's worth noting that he's seen just 32 at-bats to date.

Cardinals' Eric Fryer: Minimal playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer has one hit in only seven at-bats in the month of May.

Playing time was always going to be scarce as Yadier Molina's backup, but Fryer has only a single at-bat since May 8. The 31-year-old catcher's .185/.267/.259 slash line in 27 at-bats this season is providing the Cardinals little reason to give Molina more rest.

Cardinals' Eric Fryer: Pinch-hit double Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer smacked a double and scored a run in his only plate appearance during Sunday's 9-3 loss to the Yankees.

The backup catcher pinch hit for Yadier Molina to open the ninth and promptly smacked a two-bagger to right field off Yankees reliever Dellin Betances, eventually coming around to score his second run of the season on Randal Grichuk's fielder's choice. Fryer has logged only eight at-bats and one start on the season, and is projected for sporadic playing time given Molina's ironman reputation behind the plate.

Cardinals' Eric Fryer: Contract purchased from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer's contract was purchased from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday.

Fryer was a shoo-in to open the year as the Cardinals' backup catcher, as the team's top catching prospect, Carson Kelly, will be sent to Triple-A to get everyday at-bats to further his development. If anything should happen to Molina, however, Kelly, not Fryer, would be the likely option to come up and take over the everyday duties. This makes Fryer pretty unappealing, even in very deep leagues.
