Eric Fryer: Decides to retire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer has retired, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

The veteran catcher had signed a minor-league deal with the Phillies in December and could have provided some organizational depth, though he wasn't likely to play a significant role this season. Fryer's retirement ends a seven-year major-league career in which he was a third or fourth catcher for the Pirates, Twins and Cardinals. He'll retire with a .232/.320/.300 line in 374 career plate appearances.

Phillies' Eric Fryer: Inks NRI deal with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Monday that includes an invite to spring training, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Fryer will head to camp clearly behind Jorge Alfaro, Cameron Rupp and Andrew Knapp on the organizational depth chart, so he should begin the year at Triple-A. The 32-year-old backstop saw time in the big leagues with the Cardinals in 2017. He has a career .232/.320/.300 slash line in 374 MLB plate appearances.

Eric Fryer: Heads to open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer cleared waivers and elected free agency Monday.

Rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A, the 31-year-old backstop will head to the open market to test free agency. His career .232/.320/.300 slash line certainly doesn't open too many eyes, although Fryer's experience in the majors could help him land at least a minor-league contract before season's end.

Cardinals' Eric Fryer: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Friday.

Fryer was handed the DFA prior to the rivalry series against Chicago, while the club recalled top catching prospect Carson Kelly from Triple-A Memphis. During 34 games with the team, Fryer went just 11-for-71 from the plate, and wasn't able to hang onto his job through defensive ability alone as the Cardinals look to remain relevant in the playoff race.

Cardinals' Eric Fryer: Struggling at plate in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fryer is slashing .154/.276/.200 in 76 plate appearances this season.

The veteran backstop has also roped three doubles and driven in three runs while drawing 10 walks. Fryer has never hit below .213 in any major-league stop, and he managed a .368/.415/.421 line in 41 plate appearances for the Cardinals last season. However, his current offensive struggles aren't of particular concern, as the majority of his value is derived from his ability to provide solid defense behind the dish while giving Yadier Molina the occasional day off.
