Brewers Release Sergio Mitre

The Brewers have designated former Yankee pitcher Sergio Mitre for assignment, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. They now have 10 days to trade him or release him.

It makes you wonder whether the Yankees will try to bring him back. They seemed to like him in the role of long-man/emergency starter. They never actually released him either, he was traded for outfielder Chris Dickerson. Maybe they will view him at least as a better option than Brian Gordon and give him a shot.

Hopefully they don’t mess around with Mitre though. The Yankees should have given Hector Noesi a shot in the rotation and still should if they want to replace Gordon. If they really don’t want to use Noesi there maybe they can at least call up Adam Warren and give him a shot.

Mitre wasn’t terrible for the Brewers this year. In 22 games he had a 3.27 ERA. His K/9 was a very low 3.8, but his BB/9 of 2.7 wasn’t terrible.

      Guess what. I just saw it on Twitter. Via MLB Trade Rumors. The Brewers released Mitre? Well, guess where the Brewers are now. And guess who just got Mitre back.

        Pardon me while I go vomit. A career 13-30 record with an ERA over 5. Jaret Wright would have been a better pick up.
