Lefty Ian Krol has elected free agency after clearing waivers, per a club announcement. He was designated for assignment and then outrighted earlier today.
Krol, 27, cycled onto the Halos roster but obviously was never expected to remain for long. He was dropped after just one appearance, during which he threw two scoreless innings. The southpaw had thrown well to open the year at Triple-A, working to a 1.71 ERA with twenty strikeouts and nine walks in 21 frames.
A hard-throwing lefty, Krol has now worked 190 cumulative innings in part of six seasons in the majors. He has had success at times, but on the whole owns a 4.50 ERA with 8.4 K/9 against 3.5 BB/9 along with a 45.2% groundball rate.
