Orioles' Paul Fry: Optioned to Triple-A
Fry was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Fry hadn't allowed a run since the start of May, as he had tossed five scoreless frames over his last five appearances. However, the southpaw will be sent down to make room for Rylan Bannon, who was recalled since the Orioles need an additional position player for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.... See More ...

Orioles' Paul Fry: Extends scoreless streak
Fry pitched 1.1 perfect innings with one strikeout in Wednesday's 10-1 loss to the Cardinals.
Fry was solid in relief after an ineffective start from Spenser Watkins. Over his last five appearances, Fry has strung together five scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and a walk. It's a marked improvement in May after a very shaky April. The early struggles have left his ratios bloated -- he has a 6.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP -- but the recent returns are encouraging even if they've been in mainly low-leverage situations.... See More ...

Orioles' Paul Fry: Rough outing in non-save situation
Fry allowed three runs on four hits and two walks with one strikeout in two innings during Sunday's 8-0 loss to the Rays.
This wasn't a great performance for the Orioles in general, but Fry was responsible for three of the four runs the Rays put up in the seventh inning after Bryan Baker struggled. Fry is considered part of the Orioles' closer committee with Dillon Tate and Jorge Lopez, though it remains to be seen how often they'll have leads to protect. Fry struggled to a 6.08 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 60:35 K:BB in 47.1 innings last season, and he finished 2021 at Triple-A Norfolk. The southpaw will need to be more efficient at keeping runs off the board in all assignments to continue seeing high-leverage work despite being part of an inexperienced bullpen.... See More ...

Orioles' Paul Fry: Could be in closer mix
Fry could be a candidate to pick up save opportunities along with Dillon Tate and Jorge Lopez after the Orioles tradedTanner Scott and Cole Sulser to the Marlins on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Tate appears to be the leading candidate for the closing gig, but the bullpen is in flux after the trade. Fry looks set to make the team after giving up one run in 3.1 innings this spring with six strikeouts against two walks.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Paul Fry: Avoids arbiter
Fry agreed to a one-year, $850,000 deal with the Orioles on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Fry spent the final month of 2021 in the minors, but the Orioles still decided to tender him a contract for next season. The left-hander is coming off a poor campaign in which he had a 6.08 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 60:35 K:BB in 47.1 innings.... See More ... See Less

Orioles' Paul Fry: Logs scoreless inning
Fry walked one and struck out two in a scoreless inning Tuesday versus the Angels.
The southpaw has had few scoreless appearances lately, as he's kept runs off the board in only five of his 10 outings in August. Fry has allowed 15 runs (13 earned), nine hits and 14 walks while striking out only four in his last 6.2 innings. The 29-year-old had been an effective reliever prior to his recent struggles, but he owns a 5.36 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 60:33 K:BB across 47 innings overall.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Paul Fry: Another disastrous outing
Fry (4-5) took the loss versus Tampa Bay on Sunday. He recorded one out while allowing four runs on a hit and three walks.
Fry threw only 12 of his 25 pitches for strikes in an erratic and difficult appearance in the eighth inning.

Orioles' Paul Fry: Struggles again
Fry (4-4) took the loss Friday versus Tampa Bay. He failed to record an out while allowing three runs on a hit and two walks.
The 29-year-old was brought in for the eighth inning, but he allowed three straight batters to reach base. Dillon Tate then allowed all of the inherited runners to score as Tampa Bay took control of the contest. Fry has gotten off to a terrible start in August with five runs allowed over his last 1.2 innings. His ERA has skyrocketed to 4.29 with a 1.21 WHIP and 57:23 K:BB in 42 innings, and continued struggles could limit his fantasy appeal further after he's already lost out on closing duties....
