Fry (back) will make his Cactus League debut Wednesday against the Rockies, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
The left-hander has been slowed by a back injury over the last few weeks, but he'll make his first spring appearance Wednesday. Fry had a 4.75 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 68:43 K:BB over 68 appearances for the White Sox in 2019 and is likely to work in middle relief this season.
Fry (back) said Thursday that he's resumed a throwing program, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Fry missed four days of workouts with tightness in his lower back, but he doesn't think the injury will be anything that hinders him moving forward. He's slated to throw a bullpen session Friday or Saturday and could be ready to make a relief appearance in a Cactus League game as soon as next week.
Fry is sidelined with a back issue, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
The White Sox don't seem too concerned about the issue, though it's unclear how long it will keep Fry out of commission. Once healthy, the southpaw figures to fill a middle-relief role for Chicago.
The White Sox reinstated Fry (personal) from the paternity list Sunday.
Fellow reliever Jose Ruiz was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Rangers to open up a spot on the active roster for Fry. The lefty was only away from the team for two days and should be available out of the bullpen for Sunday's series finale with Texas.
Fry was placed on the paternity list Friday.
Fry will spend up to three days away from the team to attend the birth of his child. Jose Ruiz was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte to bolster the White Sox's bullpen in a corresponding move.
Fry struck out the lone batter he faced and combined with Evan Marshall to pitch a scoreless eighth inning in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Cubs.
Fry was activated off the injured list Tuesday and entered to face the left-handed hitting Kyle Schwarber. He's thrived as a lefty specialist in the past and could return to that role now that the White Sox have capable setup men in Marshall and Aaron Bummer.
Fry (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Fry wound up requiring a minimum-length stay on the injured list due to shoulder soreness. He owns a 5.79 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 23.1 innings of work for the White Sox this season.
Fry (shoulder) felt good after a throwing session Saturday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Fry has been on the injured list since Monday with left shoulder soreness. Given that he's already throwing again with positive reports, he's likely not in line for a lengthy absence.
Fry was placed on the injured list Monday due to left shoulder soreness.
This could help explain Fry's recent struggles, as the southpaw has allowed four runs while posting a 1:4 K:BB in 2.2 innings (four appearances) since the start of June. It remains to be seen how long Fry will be sidelined; the move is retroactive to Saturday, making the southpaw eligible to return June 18, should he prove ready. Monday's starter, Odrisamer Despaigne, was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
Fry (1-2) took the loss Friday against the Royals after recording two outs and giving up two runs on a hit and a walk.
The 25-year-old gave up a four-pitch leadoff walk to Billy Hamilton to start the bottom half of the seventh inning after taking over from Evan Marshall. Fry then surrendered the go-ahead RBI single to Adalberto Mondesi before getting replaced by Juan Minaya. Fry has struggled this season as a middle reliever for the White Sox, and owns a 5.79 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 27:17 K:BB through 28 appearances.
Fry allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out one in Tuesday's 10-5 loss to the Rays.
Fry labored through 46 pitches in ninth-inning, mop-up duty and raised his ERA to 13.50. The left-hander has allowed runs in four of five outings and is unlikely to see high-leverage opportunities for now.
Fry allowed two runs on a hit and a walk while pitching a third of an inning in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Indians.
Fry was entrusted to shepherd a 3-1 lead into the ninth inning but for the second time in two outings gave up runs. He was credited with a hold, so there's that. The left-hander emerged in the bullpen last season with gaudy strikeout numbers (12.3 K/9), but Fry has walked nine batters across 10.1 innings during spring training and the regular season.
Fry struck out four and walked one over 1.2 scoreless innings Monday against the Giants.
This was Fry's best effort of the spring, but his ERA remains an unacceptable 10.29 over seven innings. The left-hander has allowed multiple runs in three of his eight appearances. An optimist will see Monday's box score and think Fry is dialed in against major-league hitters in the final week of camp, but a few more outings like Monday are needed to bring the pessimists around. Fry came out of nowhere to be a high-leverage reliever during the second half of 2018 and will need to pitch more like he did Monday to return in that role.
Fry allowed three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning Friday against the Angels.
This was the second time in five spring outings that Fry's been rocked pretty hard, and it raised his ERA to 14.73. He emerged out of the rabble of the White Sox's bullpen in the second half last season and had some buzz as a source of saves entering camp, as Fry is pegged to pitch in the late innings, particularly against left-handed hitters.
Fry (2-3) was the game opener Wednesday and tagged with the loss after giving up a run on two hits and a walk to the Indians.
Fry was the first in a string of relievers used on a bullpen day for the White Sox. He gave up a leadoff home run to Francisco Lindor and things went downhill from there, as Cleveland built up a 10-0 lead after six innings. There are no plans to convert Fry into a starter, and, to the contrary, the left-hander will enter 2019 spring training as a possible closer.
Fry will serve as the opener for Wednesday's game against the Indians, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
This will be Fry's first start since he was at High-A in 2015, but he shouldn't be expected to pitch more than an inning or two. He has logged 6.1 innings in eight appearances this month, topping out with a 1.2-inning appearance Sept. 19. Hector Santiago could get the bulk of the innings in relief.
Fry gave up one hit and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to record his fourth save of the season in a 4-1 win over the Yankees.
The southpaw continues to dominate in August, posting a 1.69 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and eye-popping 20:3 K:BB through 10.2 innings to go along with a win, three saves and four holds in 13 appearances. While Fry may not lock down exclusive rights to the closer role for the White Sox down the stretch, he figures to be a very important part of their late-inning relief crew.
Fry recorded the final two outs Sunday, allowing no runs while striking out one as he picked up the save against Detroit.
Fry entered the game with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning, but managed to escape the jam without allowing a run to cross the plate. With Nate Jones (forearm) still on the disabled list, Fry appears set to serve as one of the top options for save opportunities, along with Xavier Cedeno. Fry owns a 3.95 ERA and 1.02 WHIP with 59 punchouts over 41 frames out of the bullpen this season.
Fry allowed two hits and struck out two over 1.1 innings in Friday's 6-3 win over the Tigers.
Fry was closing in on what would have been his third save but was replaced with no men on base after getting the first out of the ninth inning. It could be that the 27 pitches Fry had thrown was at his upper limit, so manager Rick Renteria had Juan Minaya mop up. Fry deserves to close out games and has been nasty during the month of August, striking out 16 of the 32 batters faced.
Fry struck out both batters he faced while recording a two-out save Sunday against the Royals.
Manager Rick Renteria used a mix-and-match approach to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning, bringing on Thyago Vieira to face the leadoff hitter before Fry was summoned to retire the final two. With Nate Jones (forearm) still out, the White Sox don't have a clear front runner for saves and could realistically use this type of rotation until he returns. Fry could continue to see the occasional save opportunity, though his usage in that role will likely be matchup-dependent.
