We got a little of big league news amidst of all of today's draft pick discussion. According to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports, the White Sox have released relief pitcher Brian Bruney today, roughly ten days after he had been designated for assignment.
Bruney, 29, struggled pretty badly in 23 appearances with the Pale Hose this season, posting a 6.86 ERA in 19 innings with equally as ugly peripheral statistics. He'll likely still intrigue other teams with a fastball that averages around 94 miles per hour, but command has always been an issue for Bruney and things were no different in Chicago this season.
