Certain players have opt out clauses in their minor-league deals and this is the time of Spring when most of them have a pretty good clue as to whether they should exercise them or not.
Kameron Loe chose to exercise his opt-out clause with the San Francisco Giants, and Chris Cotillo reports that the team has granted his release. The 32-year old reliever pitched in 5 games this Spring with a 3.38 ERA in 8 innings.
The 9-year veteran Loe has played for Texas, Seattle, Milwaukee, the Cubs and Atlanta. Last season, Loe split time between the last three clubs, pitching in only 20 games, earning a 7.09 ERA.
