Arlington, TX – The Texas Rangers released Manny Ramirez from his minor league contract on Tuesday.
"Based on our evaluation, there was not a spot for Manny on the club at this time," Rangers GM Jon Daniels said. "We released him so he could pursue other opportunities if he so chooses."
The 41-year-old slugger hit .259 with three homers and 13 RBI in 30 games with Triple-A Round Rock since early July.
