Jace Fry
26-Year-Old PitcherRP
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Raise your hand if you saw this 33% strikeout rate coming before the start of the 2018 season? He struck out 27% of the hitters he faced in 2017, but that was in Double-A. Fry has a full bag of pitches, of which his breaking stuff is the best. Normally, someone with his repertoire would be left in the rotation as long as possible, but Fry is already a two-time Tommy John surgery survivor and is barely over the age of 25. He is staying in the bullpen and could be a sneaky source of saves late in the season if there are injuries or if Chicago deals some of its more established back-end arms. He has the skills, but the elbow only has so much left in it given the track record for pitchers with multiple Tommy John surgeries. Throw a dart in deep AL-only leagues and enjoy some strikeouts and ratios on the cheap. Read Past Outlooks

Returns from paternity leave
PChicago White Sox
August 25, 2019
The White Sox reinstated Fry (personal) from the paternity list Sunday.
ANALYSIS
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.
