WASHINGTON (AP) -Left-handed reliever Ray King elected to become a free agent Tuesday, when the Washington Nationals removed him from their 40-man roster and attempted to send him outright to Triple-A Columbus.
The 34-year-old King made his last appearance for Washington last Wednesday, when he allowed two runs in two-thirds of an inning in a 7-2 loss to the New York Mets. That left King with a 5.68 ERA this season, with no decisions in 12 appearances covering 6 1-3 innings.
King first reached the majors in 1999 with the Chicago Cubs.
