Reds Release Michael Wuertz

The Reds have released Michael Wuertz according to Baseball America's Matt Eddy (on Twitter). Cincinnati signed the veteran right-hander to a minor league contract back in May.

Wuertz, 33, has not pitched this year due to continued injury problems. He posted a 6.68 ERA with 8.6 K/9 and 7.0 BB/9 in 33 2/3 innings for the A's in 2011, just two seasons after emerging as one of the league's dominant setup men. He battled hamstring and thumb injuries in 2011.

Wuertz was amazing in Oakland.  They’d put him in when in a jam…he’d strike out the side.  A Beauty!  Sad to see him released.

I like his chances of coming back from an injury over Zumaya, Sheets, Prior, Harden…
