Richardson was released by the Dodgers on Wednesday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports. The 32-year-old has struggled mightily with Triple-A Oklahoma City, hitting just .146 with only one extra-base hit in 15 games this season. He will now look to sign with a new club, although his fantasy value appears to be slim-to-none as he hasn't recorded a major-league at-bat since 2014.
Richardson was outrighted from the 40-man roster Wednesday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The 32-year-old didn't make an appearance with the Rangers this year as a back injury stifled his 2015 season. He's been in the majors twice in his six-year career and has recorded just 20 major league at-bats, so he probably won't get too much interest if he opts to become a free agent this offseason.
Rangers outfielder Antoan Richardson returned to action in the Arizona League after suffering a minor setback in late June coming off back surgery in March, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He is 1 for 7 (.143) in three games since returning to action. He is batting .200 (2 for 10) with one RBI, one double, one run, one walk and one strikeout in five games in the Arizona League this season.
