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 tossed 0.2 innings, allowing no runs while striking out one as he picked up the save Sunday against Detroit.
Fry entered the game with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning, but he managed to escape the jam without allowing a run to cross the plate. With Nate Jones (forearm) still on the disabled list, Fry appears 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.
