Rangers Release Orlando Hernandez

The Rangers have released righthander Orlando Hernandez according to T.R Sullivan of MLB.com. Yesterday we learned that Hernandez was likely to opt for free agency once his out clause kicked in on Monday, but the Rangers beat him to it.

El Duque had pitched effectively in 11 innings of relief with Triple-A Oklahoma City, but he didn't show enough velocity or command for Texas to think he was big league ready.
