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.

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.
