Paul Fry – LHP

Paul Fry spent some time with the Mariners this past spring in Peoria, and fared reasonably well. The 23-year-old southpaw opened the season in Bakersfield with the Blaze. Fry made 1 start in the California League, and appeared in another 27 games as a reliever. He went 4-3, posted a 2.13 ERA and recorded 2 saves across 28 games. Fry struck out 70 and walked 14 through 55 innings of work.

The Mariners promoted Paul Fry to Jackson in mid-July, and the former 17th round selection has pitched even better with the Generals. Fry is 0-2 with a 2.11 ERA over the course of 18 games. He has registered a 36:5 strikeout to walk ratio during 21.1 innings.

Paul Fry is being groomed to be a left-handed specialist, and he could debut in Seattle within the next year. A strong showing this fall with the Javelins could earn him an extended look next spring in big league camp.
