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.

i really do not like this move....we all know how great he was for most of 07 until he was over worked. I was looking forward to seeing him back on the mound. He at least deserves that chance.

=(

I was a huge fan of Sergio Mitre and would've liked to see him return with the team, but at his salary I understand the move. He will not be coming back as a 1,2 or even 3 starter. Those spots seem better suited for Johnson, Nolasco and Volstad/Olsen/Miller

If this is where the front office is going to cut payroll I guess I'm ok with it. Still sorry to see him go. Is there a chance to sign him for less if he is not picked up by another organization this offseason?

they did him dirty man! Sergio Mitre could've been a good pitch next year. Well can't critize Larry Beinfest because he's done well but i dont like this move.

Mitre was nice when healthy. Im ok with this move with the horses we have coming back. my beef is how does jorge cantu not win the comeback player of the year?? as i recall lidge played last year. this award should be for someone hurt or out of the league. not someone who had an avg year.
