By Associated Press

Former All-Star outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been released from prison in California after serving time for bankruptcy fraud.

Federal Bureau of Prisons records show the 50-year-old has been freed. A message left for his attorney Christopher Dybwad was not immediately returned Friday.

Dykstra was sentenced in December to 6 1/2 months in prison for hiding baseball gloves and other heirlooms from his playing days that were supposed to be part of his bankruptcy filing. He already had served seven months in custody awaiting sentencing.

The prison term ran concurrently with a three-year sentence for pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement.

Dykstra had a 12-year career with the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies.
