White Sox released RHP Charlie Shirek.
Shirek, 27, posted a 3.65 ERA and 117/29 K/BB ratio over 170-plus innings for Chicago's Triple-A-affiliate in 2012. The White Sox valued him highly enough to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft this offseason, but he'll be given his release in order to pursue career opportunities in Asia.
