RedHawks release SalazarThe Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks released third baseman Ruben Salazar on Thursday, ending his seven-year career with the Independent baseball team.
Salazar, 32, is the RedHawks career leader with 369 RBIs.
His .378 average in 2008 is second on the Northern League's all-time single-season list.
From Venezuela, Salazar missed big chunks of the last two seasons. He played in 61 games in 2008 and appeared just 36 times last season.
The RedHawks open the regular season against Joliet on May 21 at Newman Outdoor Field.
