Brewers Release Brian Bruney

The Brewers released Brian Bruney, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (via Twitter). Bruney signed with the Brewers earlier in the month, after the Nationals released him.

Bruney pitched 3.1 scoreless innings at Triple A Nashville after signing with Milwaukee. The right-hander's control evaded him at the big league level this year; he walked more than a batter per inning in 19 appearances with the Nationals. Bruney, who has struck out nearly a batter per inning in his major league career, had an acceptable walk rate as recently as 2008.
