Cardullo was released by the Rockies on Thursday, Connor Farrell of SB Nation's Purple Row reports.

Cardullo has never really panned out for the Rockies over the past two seasons, hitting just .190 over 91 career major league at-bats. Despite his stellar numbers at the plate with Triple-A Albuquerque last season (.308/.367/.522 with 17 home runs), the Rockies have decided to move forward while clearing a spot on the 40-man roster. The 29-year-old could land a minor-league contract elsewhere, but his chances of making it back to the big leagues remain rather slim.
