White Sox release infielder Brett Lawrie

The Chicago White Sox have requested waivers on infielder Brett Lawrie for the purpose of granting his unconditional release.

Lawrie, 27, batted .248 (87-351) with 22 doubles, 12 home runs and 36 RBI in 94 games last season, his first with the White Sox after being acquired from Oakland on December 9, 2015.

With the move, the Sox have 59 players remaining in major-league camp, and the 40-man roster decreases to 38.
