BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Birmingham Barons and the Chicago White Sox announced today that pitcher Jace Fry has been promoted to the Chicago White Sox.
Fry, 24, was on the 2017 Opening Day roster for the Barons and spent the entire season in Birmingham, going 2-1, with a 2.78 ERA in 33 appearances. Fry, a third-round pick of the White Sox in 2015 out of Oregon State, missed the entire 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John Surgery. The left-hander recorded three saves in five attempts this season and allowed only one earned run in 15.1 innings over his last 10 appearances of the season, while lowering his career ERA to 3.20.
Fry is set to join Aaron Bummer as the only two members of the 2017 Birmingham Barons to reach the major league level this season, after Bummer joined the White Sox from Triple-A Charlotte on July 27. Fry is also the first Baron since Carson Fulmer on July 15, 2016 to make the jump straight from Birmingham to Chicago.
