Former All-Star outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been released from a California prison after serving time for bankruptcy fraud. Dykstra, 50, had most recently received a 6 1/2-month sentence for hiding equipment and memorabilia from his playing days that were believed to have been part of his bankruptcy filing. After the filing, Dykstra hid, sold or destroyed at least $200,000 worth of items without the permission of a bankruptcy trustee, prosecutors said. The former Mets and Phillies outfielder was serving time for a series of offenses that included bankruptcy fraud and grand theft auto. The term, however, ran concurrently with a three-year sentence he had received after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement. A message left for his attorney Christopher Dybwad was not immediately returned Friday.
