Rangers Release Manny Ramirez from Minor League Contract

Rangers Release Manny Ramirez from Minor League Contract

After batting only .259 with 3 home runs in 119 at-bats with the Rangers’ Triple-A affiliate team Round Rock, the Texas Rangers have decided to release Manny Ramirez. The 41-year-old was attempting a comeback to Major League Baseball following a 49-game stint in the Taiwanese major leagues in which he was extremely productive, batting .352 with 8 home runs and 43 RBIs in just 49 games.

The Texas Rangers gave him a shot and it seemed early on that it might work out after Ramirez’s hot start at Round Rock when he hit 3 home runs in his first 8 games. However, the production went downhill from there as he did not hit another home run in the remainder of his 30-game stint. 

Whether another team will give Ramirez a chance is yet to be determined, so his career totals in the MLB remain at 555 home runs and 1,831 RBIs to go along with a .312 batting average.
