John Blake, Rangers Vice President of Communications, announced on Twitter that the team has released outfielder Ryan Ludwick from his minor league contract. Ludwick¬†was informed on Thursday that he would not make the Rangers’ Opening Day roster.

The Rangers signed Ludwick to a minor league deal in early February. Ludwick would have earned $1.75 million if he had made the roster. He hit just .200 in 30 Cactus League at-bats for the Rangers, registering only one home run and three RBI with a 9/0 K/BB ratio. Ludwick, 36, posted below-average numbers in each of the last two seasons with the Reds.
