News: Fryer was reassigned to Triple-A Rochester, the St. Paul Pioneer Press's Brian Murphy reports.
Impact: He lost the battle for the backup catcher role to Chris Herrmann. Fryer could be called up at some point this summer for his defense as a backup catcher, but his fantasy value is quite limited, given an offensive history that includes a .630 career OPS at Triple-A.

News: Fryer will compete with Chris Herrmann and Josmil Pinto for the backup catcher role this spring, manager Paul Molitor told MLB.com.
Impact: Pinto would appear to have the lead as by far the best hitter of the three, but Fryer has a realistic shot at winning the job since he's the best defender. However, Fryer would offer almost no fantasy value in a back up role considering he's never hit at any level (.630 career OPS at Triple-A).
