Fry threw his changeup just 15 times last year, 14 of which were to RHB. Featuring well below average movement, the changeup didn’t get a single whiff last year. It’s pretty easy to see why he barely throws it.

Fry’s fastball features below-average velocity averaging a modest 90.7 mph. It does, however, feature above-average spin (82nd percentile). It returned an unexciting 8.2% swinging K rate. It was a good groundball pitch holding hitters to an average launch angle of 1. It did, however, allow an ugly .379 xwOBA to opposing hitters.

Fry’s primary whiff pitch at 30.2%, the slider was very respectable this year returning a 12.5% swinging K rate, 37.1% zone rate, and 35.3% chase rate. It also held hitters to an excellent .249 xwOBA.

43.3% Thrown 83.7 MPH

The muse to his rookie success, Fry’s slider flummoxed opponents to a .197/.254/.227 slash line and 32.4% strikeout clip. Nobody mustered any better than a double against the top offering, which notched a 14.1% swinging-strike rate. He should maintain, or even expand last year’s hefty 43.4% usage.

Thrown at an average velocity of 91.3 mph, Fry’s fastball ceded as many walks as strikeouts (13). Opponents hit .284 with a .398 OBP, but the rookie limited he damage with a 58.3% ground-ball rate and .068 ISO. While the slider is still his Money Pitch, he can get by if avoiding disaster with his four-seamer.
