News: Fryer was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports.
Impact: Fryer was originally expected to compete for a role backing up Kurt Suzuki after posting a .213 batting average over 81 plate appearances in 2014. Instead, the Twins will elect to use his spot on the 40-man roster for the recently signed Tim Stauffer. At 29 years old, Fryer's opportunities to be a steady contributor in the Majors may be drying up.
