Manny Ramirez released by Texas Rangers
It turns out Manny won't get to be Manny in Arlington after all.
The Texas Rangers released Manny Ramirez on Tuesday. The team had signed the 41-year-old to a minor league contract on July 3.
Ramirez hit .259 with three home runs and 13 RBIs with the team's Triple-A affiliate in Round Rock. He's a career .312 hitter with 555 home runs.
Prior to signing with the Rangers organization, Ramirez had spent the season hitting insanely long home runs in Taiwan.
