Fryer Clears Waivers, Jeroloman Claimed

The Pittsburgh Pirates designated Eric Fryer for assignment last week to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for their Rule 5 additions.  On the same day they claimed catcher Brian Jeroloman from the Toronto Blue Jays, who they designated for assignment to clear a spot for Clint Barmes.  Fryer cleared waivers today and was outrighted to AAA.  Jeroloman, on the other hand, was claimed by Toronto, returning to his old team.

    I am kinda surprised Fryer made it through and Jeroloman did not. I still believe Fryer will have a Major League career. I seen him at AAA several times and was impressed. The ball explodes off his bat and he is very athletic behind the plate. I am will to bet, barring injury, that Fryer’s Major League career will be longer than that of Tony Sanchez.
