Brewers Release Scott Schoeneweis

The Brewers released lefty reliever Scott Schoeneweis, reports Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.  Schoeneweis had signed a minor league deal on February 9th, with hopes of complementing Mitch Stetter as the team's second bullpen lefty.  Schoeneweis was upset by the release, and doesn't feel he should have to prove himself again because his wife died last year from a drug overdose.  He sounded off further to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy.

Schoeneweis, 36, handled lefties well for the Mets back in '08.  He joins free agent southpaw relievers Ron Mahay, Glendon Rusch, and Ron Villone.
