    Fry started making his mark in Little League, helping lead Beaverton (Ore.) to a third-place finish in the 2006 Little League World Series. He threw 288 pitches in three games over 10 days in a Little League regional tournament. Fry was drafted out of high school in the ninth round by the Athletics in 2011 but didn't sign, heading to Oregon State and thriving as a freshman during a 5-3, 2.45 season. However, he injured his elbow late that year and wound up requiring Tommy John surgery in June 2012. Fry returned at the tail end of 2013 and wound up pitching for Oregon State down the stretch, including in its Omaha finale against Mississippi State. He returned to full strength in 2014 and had a strong junior season, tossing a no-hitter against Northern Illinois in March and locking down Sundays for the Beavers. Fry's velocity was improving as the season went along, sitting in the 87-91 mph range and touching 93. His fastball is more notable for its life and he's the rare lefthanded sinker-slider pitcher. He throws strikes with the fastball and slider, a solid-average pitch, and mixes in a curveball and changeup. He must keep the ball at thigh-level or below to be effective because he lacks the velocity to get away with pitches at the belt. Fry repeats his delivery and has a sturdy, compact 6-foot, 197-pound frame.
