Knox released

Outfielder Patrick Breen is headed to Montgomery from Class A Visalia, but the move doesn't involve the Biscuits sending an outfielder to short-handed Durham.

Ryan Knox was released instead.

Knox bounced between the Biscuits and Bulls this season. When he was with Durham, he didn't get much playing time and hit .184 in 34 games. With Montgomery, he had a .149 average in 25 games.

Knox was here to start the season, but the Rays promoted him before the first game. He returned in late April and was in six games before Delmon Young's bat throw. To adjust the rosters for Young's 50-game suspension, Knox went back to the Bulls and Francisco Leandro jumped from Visalia to Montgomery.

Breen was primarily a left fielder with Visalia. He had a .282 average, 21 home runs and 63 RBIs.
