Brewers Release Mike Jones

The Brewers have released minor league righthander Mike Jones according to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy. Jones was the team's first round pick in the 2001 draft.

The 27-year-old Jones has battled major arm injuries throughout his career, including shoulder surgery in 2004 and Tommy John surgery in 2007. Despite more than eight full years in the minors, Jones only threw 623.1 innings and never reached the big leagues. He owns a career 3.75 ERA, though he's dealt with control issues in recent years.

Milwaukee gave Jones a $2.075MM signing bonus when they selected him 12th overall back in 2001.
