BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles granted right-hander Brooks Kriske his release to pursue an international opportunity.
The Orioles also announced Tuesday that infielder Lucius Fox was claimed off waivers by the Washington Nationals.
The 27-year-old Kriske made 16 relief appearances over the past two seasons with the Orioles and New York Yankees. He was 2-1 with a 14.40 ERA.
The 24-year-old Fox has not appeared in the majors. He hit .242 with four homers and 21 RBIs for Triple-A Omaha last season while part of the Kansas City organization. The Orioles claimed him off waivers from the Royals earlier in November.
