Texas Rangers Pitcher Becomes Free Agent

Former Texas Rangers pitcher Garrett Richards has cleared waivers and is now a free agent.

Richards was designated for assignment recently, so it was expected that his time as a Ranger was coming to a close. Now, the veteran pitcher will be hoping to ink a contract elsewhere.

Richards made 32 appearances with the Ranger this season, where he sported a 1-1 record and 5.27 ERA. Teams looking for some pitching depth could give the 259-game veteran a call from here.
