Fritze signed with the Canaries in 2018 as a rookie-eligible player after playing part of the 2017 season with the Gary SouthShore RailCats. Fritze made 19 appearances for the RailCats last season, striking out 19 batters in 21.2 innings pitched. Fritze is a graduate of Valparaiso University. He made 25 appearances for the Crusaders his senior year, finishing with a team-high seven saves. Canaries manager Mike Meyer praised Fritze for his "electric fastball and above average slider," adding he thinks the 24-year-old has plenty of room to improve in a Canaries uniform.
