Brewers release RHP David Riske

The Milwaukee Brewers have released right-handed relief pitcher

David Riske, who has struggled since returning from last season’s

elbow surgery.

Riske signed a three-year, $13 million contract before the 2008

season but has been limited to 69 games in three seasons because of

injuries. He pitched only one game last season before undergoing

Tommy John elbow surgery. He returned to the Brewers this June and

has a 5.01 ERA in 23 outings this season.
