The White Sox released Brett Lawrie on Friday, but the infielder might not be without a team for long. The Rays will at least consider signing Lawrie, reports Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. The Royals, Mets and Blue Jays also have an interest in Lawrie, according to ESPN’s Jim Bowden. A native of Canada, Lawrie played in Toronto from 2011-14.

The Mets could look to Lawrie as insurance for David Wright, who has been shelved for the meantime with a shoulder impingement. He also has played second base and shortstop in his career in the majors. Lawrie, 27 years old has a lifetime batting average of .261. He batted .248 with 12 homers and 36 RBI's in 94 games in 2016 with Chicago.
