CHICAGO -- Right-handed pitcher Brian Omogrosso, who was outrighted off the 40-man roster last week, became the third White Sox player to elect free agency since the end of the 2013 season.

Also opting for free agency were left-hander Leyson Septimo and catcher Hector Gimenez, who made the Opening Day roster and was then designated for assignment in July when Josh Phegley was promoted.

Omogrosso was outrighted last week along with right-hander Ramon Troncoso, as well as catchers Bryan Anderson and Miguel Gonzalez, as the White Sox looked to clear 40-man roster space for potential offseason acquisitions.

Omogrosso pitched in just 12 major league games this past season, posting an 0-2 record with a 9.37 ERA. He has a career 5.54 ERA over 39 big league appearances.

Septimo did not pitch in the major leagues in 2013. He had a 5.02 ERA in 21 relief appearances with the White Sox in 2012.

Gimenez had just 68 at-bats over 26 games before he was designated. He batted .191 with two home runs and 10 RBIs.
