The Chicago White Sox released shortstop Lucius Fox on March 28, according to his MLB profile. 

Fox was in minor league camp with the White Sox for all of March. He signed with the White Sox organization to a minor league contract in February 

Fox, 26, was born in Nassau, Bahamas, and played one season with the Washington Nationals in 2022. 

Fox began his professional career after moving back to the Bahamas after attending American Heritage High School in Delray Beach, Fla. During the 2015 signing period, he declared himself an international free agent. 

Fox inked a deal with a $6 million signing bonus with the San Francisco Giants on July 2, 2015, and was placed on the organization’s restricted list shortly after, on July 5, 2015. 

Fox has spent his time in the minor leagues with the San Francisco Giants in 2016, the Tampa Bay Rays from 2017-19, the Kansas City Royals in 2021, and the Washington Nationals from 2022-23. 

Last season, Fox played 44 games between the Rookie Complex Level, High-A Wilmington, Double-A Harrisburg, and Triple-A Rochester with the Nationals organization. He hit .229 with 150 plate appearances, recording 30 hits, two doubles, three home runs, 10 RBI, 15 walks, and 42 strikeouts until the Nationals released him on September 12, 2023. 

In 2022, Fox debuted his MLB on April 10, 2022, in the nation’s capital against the New York Mets. He played in 10 with Washington and batted .080 with 28 plate appearances, recording two hits, two RBI, one stolen base, one walk, and nine strikeouts before he was sent down to Triple-A Rochester on May 3, 2022. 

Fox played 55 games with Triple-A Rochester and batted .228 with 231 plate appearances. He had 47 hits, seven doubles, two triples, four home runs, 25 RBI, 12 stolen bases, 22 walks, 61 strikeouts, and a .646 OPS. 

Fox was placed on the 7-day injured list in 2022 and sent to his rehab assignment at the Rookie Complex League level one month later. 

He played in three games at the Rookie Complex League level. In 14 plate appearances, he hit .500 and had five hits, one double, three RBI, one stolen base, one walk, and two strikeouts before he was activated from Triple-A Rochester on August 20, 2022. 

During the 2021 season, Fox played in 63 games between the Royals Blue-Gold Arizona Complex League levels and batted .245 in 270 plate appearances, smacking 56 hits, 15 doubles, five home runs, 24 RBI, 19 stolen bases, 37 walks, 67 strikeouts, and a .729 OPS. 

In his seven seasons in the minor leagues, Fox has a lifetime average of .243. He played in 582 games with 2,476 plate appearances, recording 520 hits, 83 doubles, 20 triples, 23 home runs, 190 RBI, 156 stolen bases, 266 walks, 564 strikeouts, and a .668 OPS. 

Fox can explore his options to play in the independent leagues in the United States or other professional leagues from around the globe if no MLB organizations see a fit for him in Triple-A or their 40-man rosters.
