Brewers Release Mike Jones

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

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.
