Rangers release Arthur Rhodes
He becomes a free agent on Wednesday, when he would be eligible to sign with another club.
Texas designated the 41-year-old Rhodes for assignment on Aug. 2 to create a roster spot for right-hander Mike Adams, who had been acquired in a trade with San Diego.
Rhodes went 3-3 with a 4.81 ERA in 32 relief appearances for Texas this season.
The 20-year veteran has 881 career appearances, trailing only the Yankees' Mariano Rivera (1,023).
