After having an All-Star season with the Royals in 2007, pitcher David Riske now finds himself unemployed. The Brewers released Riske today after three seasons of frustrating baseball.
Riske was never the same pitcher when he signed with the Brewers, and he got drastically worse year-after-year. After posting a 5.31 ERA in 2008, Riske made just one appearance in 2009 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. This season has been one for Riske to forget too, as he has shown poor command all season.
He will likely get a minor league deal somewhere for next season.
