Rangers release Kevin Matthews
The Rangers have released LHP Kevin Matthews, their 33rd overall pick from the 2011 draft. Matthews was charged with one misdemeanor count of driving while impaired on Wednesday morning in Hickory.
The Rangers released a statement saying, “The Texas Rangers are very disappointed in the Wednesday morning incident involving Kevin Matthews, and we certainly do not condone this behavior. We cannot comment any further on this situation since it is a police matter.”
Matthews had a 6.48 ERA in six games at Hickory. His career never took off after starting out with arm problems and the Rangers were likely to let him go at some point anyway.
