Jace Fry: Cut by Tigers
The Tigers released Fry (elbow) on Thursday.
Left elbow inflammation has kept Fry sidelined since late April, but the 29-year-old southpaw had been solid out of the bullpen in Triple-A Toledo prior to injury. Before allowing three runs in 1.1 innings during his most recent appearance, Fry held an impressive 2.08 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 12 strikeouts through 8.2 frames. Once healthy, Fry should be able to contribute to another organization's Triple-A bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jace Fry: Nursing sore elbow at Triple-A
Fry is currently sidelined at Triple-A Toledo with left elbow inflammation, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Tigers' Jace Fry: Sent packing to minors camp
The Tigers reassigned Fry to minor-league camp Monday.
Fry was one of several non-roster invitee relievers with prior MLB experience who received an extended look from the Tigers in spring training, but Trey Wingenter and Chasen Shreve were the top standouts among that group of hurlers during Grapefruit League play and appear to have secured their spots in the Opening Day bullpen. Unless he and the Tigers agree to mutually part ways, Fry is expected to report to Triple-A Toledo to begin the season.... See More ... See Less

Philadelphia signed Fry to a minor-league contract Sunday and assigned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The 28-year-old lefty previously made 162 appearances in the majors with the White Sox across the past five seasons, but he failed to earn a call-up to Washington in 2022 after turning in a 3.77 ERA and 1.56 WHIP across 14.1 innings at Triple-A Rochester....

The lefty appeared in only six games this season for the White Sox and posted a 10.80 ERA. Fry enjoyed some big-league success in 2020, pitching to a 3.66 ERA in 19.2 innings, but his most recent action is unlikely to merit a sizable deal this offseason.... See More ... See Less

White Sox's Jace Fry: On track to rejoin big club
Fry's agency, Northwest Sports Management Group, announced Wednesday that its client will be called up from Triple-A Charlotte.
The White Sox will likely confirm the transaction prior to Wednesday's game against the Twins.

Over his 13 outings at Charlotte spanning 14 innings, Fry has posted a 1.93 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 21:8 K:BB.... See More ... See Less

White Sox's Jace Fry: Excelling during rehab assignment
Fry (back) has made five appearances for Triple-A Charlotte since beginning a rehab assignment May 27, working five scoreless, no-hit frames while striking out seven and walking four.
As Fry's excellent numbers attest, the White Sox are confident with how the lefty is progressing in his recovery from a microdiscetomy during the offseason. Fry cleared an important milestone in the recovery process over the weekend by pitching on back-to-back days for Charlotte, which could foreshadow a return from the 60-day injured list in the near future....

Fry (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Fry dealt with back issues last season, and he underwent a procedure during the offseason.
