Mitre Released


              One day after completing their season, the Marlins went right to work on the roster, releasing right-handed pitcher Sergio Mitre.Mitre

              Mitre was expected to open the season in the rotation but strained his right elbow in spring training and underwent Tommy John surgery in July. Mitre went 6-13 during the 2006 and '07 seasons with the Marlins after they obtained him -- along with Ricky Nolasco and Renyel Pinto -- in the 2005 trade with the Chicago Cubs for Juan Pierre.

             Mitre did not pitch for the Marlins in '08, though his $1.2 million salary was the fourth-highest on the club.
