White Sox claim Peyton Burdick off waivers from Baltimore; place Matt Foster on 60-day injured list

CHICAGO – The Chicago White Sox have claimed outfielder Peyton Burdick off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles and placed right-handed pitcher Matt Foster on the 60-day injured list to continue his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery.

Burdick, who turns 27 on Monday, appeared in 14 games with Miami last season, hitting .182 (6-33) with two doubles, one home run and two RBI. He spent most of 2023 at Class AAA Jacksonville, batting .219 (92-420) with 20 doubles, two triples, 24 homers and 74 RBI over 114 games. The 6-foot, 205-pound Burdick was traded by the Marlins to Orioles in exchange for cash considerations on February 14.

Burdick, a native of Batavia, Ohio, has hit .200 (25-125) with six doubles, five home runs, 13 RBI and 12 runs scored in 46 career major-league games with Miami. He is a career .235/.353/.457 (340-1,445) hitter with 76 doubles, 13 triples, 73 homers and 249 RBI in 396 games over four minor-league seasons. Burdick originally was selected by the Marlins in the third round of the June 2019 First-Year Player Draft.

Foster missed the entire 2023 season after undergoing successful Tommy John surgery on April 19, 2023.

With the following the moves, Chicago’s 40-man roster remains at 40.
