Fritz started his footballing career playing for the Regionalliga club Rot-Weiß Erfurt. In the summer of 2001, he joined 2. Bundesliga club Karlsruher SC and scored five goals in 32 games. When he was signed by Bayer Leverkusen in 2003, he was loaned back to Karlsruhe to play first team football.

In 2004, he broke his leg during a pre-season game against Rot-Weiss Essen, ruling him out the entire season. He became a first team regular for Leverkusen until he joined Werder Bremen in the summer of 2006.
