Fry (back) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday.
Fry underwent a microdisectomy in his back during the offseason and doesn't yet have a timetable for his return. His placement on the 60-day injured list will clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Nick Williams, whose contract was selected by Chicago in a corresponding move. Fry will serve as a third lefty option in the bullpen behind Aaron Bummer and Garrett Crochet once he's available.
The White Sox placed Fry (back) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.
Fry will be eligible to come off the IL next week, but he's expected to require more time beyond that to make a full recovery from the microdiscectomy he required during the offseason. Once available, he'll give the White Sox a third lefty option out of the bullpen behind Aaron Bummer and Garrett Crochet.
Fry underwent a microdisectomy in his back during the offseason and should begin the regular season on the injured list, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Fry dealt with back issues last season, and he underwent a procedure during the offseason. As a result, general manager Rick Hahn revealed Wednesday that the southpaw will likely miss the first month of the regular season while he recovers. Once Fry is healthy, he should serve as a middle reliever for the White Sox in 2021.
Fry agreed Wednesday with the White Sox on a one-year, $862,500 contract to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
The southpaw reliever was arbitration-eligible for the first time after posting a 3.66 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 24:12 K:BB across 19.2 innings last season. He'll likely fill a middle-relief role for the White Sox in 2021.
Fry (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Fry missed slightly more than the minimum 10 days with back spasms. He's been an effective part of the bullpen for the White Sox this season, posting a 3.65 ERA and 15:6 K:BB in 12.1 innings. Bernardo Flores was optioned in a corresponding move.
Fry was placed on the 10-day injured list with back spasms, retroactive to Thursday.
Fry has been quite effective recently as he hasn't allowed a run over his last nine appearances, but he was apparently dealing with a back issue and will miss time as a result. The severity of the issue is unclear. Alex McRae's contract was selected by the White Sox to fill a bullpen role in Fry's absence.
Fry allowed two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning in Monday's 6-4 win over the Brewers.
Fry was one of six relievers used after starter Carlos Rodon (shoulder) was removed after two innings. He earned a hold despite allowing three runners, two of which scored after he was removed. It was the second straight game in which the left-hander was nicked. He allowed three runs, three hits and a home run in his previous outing. Fry has an 11.25 ERA in four appearances.
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.
