Nationals Release Rick Ankiel

The Nationals have released outfielder Rick Ankiel, the team announced. Washington designated the outfielder for assignment last week.

Ankiel, 33, signed a one-year, $1.25MM contract with Washington this past offseason. He appeared in 68 games as the Nationals' center fielder and posted a .228/.282/.411 batting line with five home runs in 171 plate appearances. The Yankees had some interest in Ankiel before acquiring Ichiro Suzuki.
