Fox was optioned back to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Fox was recalled by the Nationals on Friday, but he did not appear in a game before being returned to Rochester on Tuesday. The move was made to clear a roster spot for Ehire Adrianza (quadriceps), who was activated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Lucius Fox: Recalled Friday
Fox was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Bobby Blanco of MASN reports.
Dee Strange-Gordon is on the paternity list, and Fox is up as a corresponding move. The speedy shortstop hit .289/.385/.467 with one home run and three steals in 45 at-bats at Triple-A, which is arguably the best offensive stretch of his career as a pro.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Lucius Fox: Sent to Triple-A

Nationals' Lucius Fox: Two hits, stolen base
Fox went 2-for-5 with a run, RBI and stolen base in an 11-5 win against the Giants on Sunday.
Fox knocked an RBI single and stole second as part of a five-run first inning and tacked on a single and run in the sixth for the first two hits of his young career. The 24-year-old will look to build on the momentum after starting out 0-for-20 with just one walk.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Lucius Fox: Back in lineup at shortstop
Fox (illness) will start at shortstop and bat ninth Wednesday against the Marlins.
Fox picked up his fourth start of the season in Sunday's 12-3 loss to the Giants, but he exited the contest midway through the first inning after he fell violently ill and was seen vomiting on the field. After two days to rest up, Fox is evidently feeling better and didn't have any symptoms of COVID-19, so he'll be in the clear to fill in at shortstop while Alcides Escobar receives a routine maintenance day....

Nationals' Lucius Fox: Exits with illness
Fox was removed from Sunday's game against the Giants after vomiting on the field during the first inning, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Fox received the start at third base but never received an at-bat Sunday, as he was ill on the field during the top of the first inning. Josh Bell (hamstring) is likely limited to pinch-hitting duties, so the Nationals are effectively down two bench players Sunday. Maikel Franco has shifted back to third base with Riley Adams now working at first.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Lucius Fox: Contributes in first career start
Fox went 0-for-2 with a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Mets.
Making his first career start in the majors, Fox was a key figure in the Nationals' three-run rally in the bottom of the eighth inning, bringing home Dee Strange-Gordon with a sacrifice bunt and reaching first when Pete Alonso's throw went to the plate, then scoring the winning run on a Nelson Cruz single. Fox profiles as little more than a utility infielder, but with the Nats in rebuild mode, the 24-year-old could get more playing time than expected if he sticks around on the big-league roster....

Nationals' Lucius Fox: Set for big-league debut
Fox is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth Sunday against the Mets.
Alcides Escobar has served as the Nationals' starting shortstop in each of the first three games of the season. However, Fox will enter the lineup Sunday to make his major-league debut. He's never hit more than four home runs in a single season while in the minors, though he swiped 19 bases and was caught just twice across 252 plate appearances with Triple-A Omaha in 2021....

Nationals' Lucius Fox: Secures spot on Opening Day roster
The Nationals recalled Fox from Triple-A Rochester on Monday and informed him that he will be included on the Opening Day roster, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Washington was already looking to bring aboard another utility infielder with Ehire Adrianza (quadriceps) on track to open the season on the injured list, and that need became greater after Alcides Escobar was held out of Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals due to a stiff neck. As a result, the Nationals elected to reverse their previous transaction involving Fox, who was optioned to Rochester a week ago. The 24-year-old is unlikely to see much action while he's up with the big club, but Fox's ability to switch hit and play three infield positions and center field should make him a useful bench piece....

Nationals' Lucius Fox: Sent to Triple-A
Fox was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Fox was claimed off waivers by the Nationals just before the start of the lockout but was never likely to make the Opening Day roster. The 24-year-old has yet to make his major-league debut and hit .242/.347/.363 with four home runs, 21 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 57 games at the Triple-A level last season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Lucius Fox: Claimed by Nationals
Fox was claimed off waivers by the Nationals on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Fox has now been claimed off waivers twice within two weeks, having been previously claimed by the Orioles from the Royals in mid-November. He received his first career call-up with Kansas City in July but didn't get the chance to make his major-league debut.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Lucius Fox: Claimed by Baltimore
Fox was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Friday.
Fox was removed from Kansas City's 40-man roster, and Baltimore opted to scoop him up on waivers. The 24-year-old spent 2021 at the Triple-A level and hit .242/.347/.363 with four home runs, 21 RBI, 40 runs and 19 stolen bases in 57 games.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Lucius Fox: Sent back down
Fox was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
Fox was called up by Kansas City on Friday, but he didn't make his major-league debut during the team's loss to the Blue Jays. The 24-year-old will remain on the Royals' taxi squad, but Edward Olivares will now rejoin the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Lucius Fox: Recalled by Royals
Fox was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
The 24-year-old will join the big-league roster following the trade of Jorge Soler to Atlanta. Fox has struggled at Triple-A this season with a .185/.305/.222 slash line in 22 games, but he'll nonetheless have the opportunity to make his MLB debut.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Lucius Fox: Demoted to minors
The Royals optioned Fox to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.
Adalberto Mondesi and Nicky Lopez are locked in as the Royals' everyday starters in the middle infield, and the organization still wants Fox to get regular at-bats, so the decision to send the 23-year-old to the minors doesn't come as a major surprise. With Kansas City also demoting Kelvin Gutierrez to the minors, non-roster invitee Hanser Alberto looks like the leading candidate to open the season as the Royals' utility infielder.... See More ...

Royals' Lucius Fox: Headed to Kansas City
Fox was traded from the Rays to the Royals in exchange for outfielder Brett Phillips on Thursday.
Fox was part of the Rays' 60-man roster pool during camp and began the season at the team's alternate training site. He'll remain with the Royals' alternate squad to begin his time with the organization. The 23-year-old spent the 2019 season with the Double-A and Triple-A clubs, slashing .221/.331/.327 with 34 RBI and 29 stolen bases.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Lucius Fox: Projected for player pool
Fox is projected to be part of the 60-man player pool that will report to the Rays' summer camp, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The 22-year-old shortstop was optioned to Triple-A Durham back on March 10, but it now appears he'll be able to continue his development on the team's taxi squad and potentially even see major-league action at some point in 2020. Fox briefly reached Durham for the first time last season, slashing .143/.250/.190 across 49 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
