RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Eric Fryer.

2015

Fryer is a minor league journeyman known for his defense who hasn't hit anywhere (.630 career OPS at Triple-A) other than a 13-game stretch in the majors in 2013. He'll likely add depth at Triple-A again and only be called up if the Twins need a third catcher.

2014

Fryer is a minor league journeyman known for his defense who hit .385 (5-for-15) when called up to Minnesota in September. He'll likely add depth in the minors, but the Twins situation at catcher may be in flux with Joe Mauer moving to first base, so there's an opportunity for him to win a backup role.
